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.
