My first lesson came in the form of discovering what the Lay Pack and Attack Pack do both individually and when combined.More information can be found on the Lay Pack here and the Attack Pack here.

However, as this is a summary in layman’s terms, here’s what I soon discovered for myself:

When it comes to fighting fire we talk about things in goals, strategies and tactics.

The goal is to achieve the two requirements common to every fire emergency, regardless of location – from an oilrig to house fire these two objectives need to be achieved.

While the QuickLay packs service a lot of industries, one of our major client bases are Emergency Response Teams. For those not quite up to speed with the lingo, an Emergency Response Team (ERT) is a group of civilian employees in a workplace (building, ship or oilrig) located far from a fire station, who hold the responsibility of being the first form of attack against a fire.

For example – there will be a team of workers on a cruise ship who, when the fire alarms ring, are responsible for donning their ERT outfits, grabbing their fire fighting equipment and basically doing the job of fully-trained firemen – without the training. For more on ERTs, click this link.

As the new recruit at QuickLay Fire Attack and coming from a journalism/PR background, I can safely say that I’ve never rolled hose in my life. In fact, I’ve never so much as seen a fire hose. My contact with fire fighting equipment goes as far as playing aRescue Me DVD.

However, I’ve always had a huge interest in pioneering technologies and products that not only create a stir within their industry but those that really have a positive impact – and in the case of the QuickLay packs, save lives.

What is QuickLay Fire Attack?

From fire fighters around the world through to Emergency Response Teams in prisons, on mine sites or aboard cruise ships- the task of lay-flat fire hose deployment is universally inconsistent and generally restrictive in its application.

Traditionally, to avoid kinks and tangles, fire hose deployment requires long open spaces. Many on-duty injuries occur when fire fighters attempt to un-kink a semi-charged hose. Further, it’s when a hose is kinked that it’s more likely to burst, causing additional water damage – as the fire intensifies.

Then when it's charged, the long lengths of hose filled with water are heavy when dragged towards the fire.

The QuickLay Packs provide the first holestic hose management solution by essentially by fulfilling the two requirements common to every fire emergency. Firstly, the Lay Pack stretches a length of hose between the water supply and the fire containment point. Where a second hose, stowed in the Attack Pack can be deployed into a neat coil and easily advanced.

In addition to the rapid deployment of the Attack Pack, the nature of the coiled hose introduces fire fighters to greater deployment flexibility including confined space deployment in places like high-rise fire stairs, a terrace style court yard, a unit block balcony or the narrow gangway of a cruise or cargo ship.

The innovative hose lay packs allow multilingual and multi-skilled operators to easily deploy and advance a charged fire hose 90% quicker and 99% more reliably.
