Probably most of us have seen a fire scene and a fire truck during its firefighting operation, as there are plenty of fires on a daily basis all over the world. If you have never seen it live, for sure you have watched many firefighting operations on TV or while surfing on the internet. However, when it comes to wildfires, our knowledge of putting them out is limited, because most of us have never seen this kind of operation, as wildfires are rare. Volkan Fire is the best fire truck producer in Turkey with countless options for rough terrain fire apparatus.
How to put out a wildfire?
To put out a wildfire, we need a special fire brush truck. This is not a usual fire engine, but rather a rough terrain vehicle, specially designed to be driven in difficult, rural areas, where normal cars do not have access. Firetruck manufacturers equip these types of apparatus with maximum water supply capacity, as there is always very limited water supply in the wild. The technique used by firefighters is named Pulaski. They draw a fire line as a strip of land from which they clear all brushes and debris. In this way, the fire will run out of fuel and stop naturally. In the same time with Pulaski, firefighters throw as much water as possible towards the fire.
