Round Rock Fire uses new technology to better equip crews during fires

Round Rock Fire uses new technology to better equip crews during fires

The City of Round Rock recently installed a Firefighter Air Replenishment System (FARS) at its state-of-the-art Public Safety Training Center so firefighters can train on this new technology, which was recently deployed at Kalahari Resort and Conventions.

“This is cutting-edge technology that’s in the latest fire code for the development of high rise buildings.”

Round Rock Fire Chief Robert Isbell

The system is installed in a high-rise, large horizontal structure or tunnel to deliver a safe, immediate, endless supply of air replenishment to firefighters inside a structure. Firefighters can refill their air bottles in two minutes or less, without removing their facepiece or SCBA, at fill stations located throughout a building.
