A World First for Firefighter Safety
Thermaguard is pleased to be included in sponsoring the Rural Fire Brigade Association Queensland (RFBAQ) and Quikcorp on their latest "Innovation Platform" to enhance Firefighter Safety.
RFBAQ, Quikcorp and a number of Sponsors and Firefighter volunteers have recently collaborated to develop a fire-fighting appliance design providing optimum performance and fire protection for the crew.
As a result, a number of fundamental improvements have been actioned on a G-Wagon prototype, including;
- External & Internal Fire Curtains
- Cab Protection Water/Foam Spray
- Internal Air Scrubber
- Thermal Imaging Camera
- Ambient Heat Alarm
- Over-cab Deflection System
- 40ltr Drip Torch Fuel Tank
- Electric Chainsaw with Built-in Charger
- Winch on Bullbar

This project is in addition to RFBAQ’s Land Cruiser Prototypes where 6x fully fitted out fire fighting appliances were given to brigades in need, earlier in the year. View our May 2020 blog article relating to this project.
