What makes this product suitable for wildland firefighting?
The protection and equipment needs of a wildland and a structural firefighter are vastly different. Wildland fires are fought using the strategic placement of vegetation, aircraft, and reducing hot spots and rogue flames to control the fire until it burns out. To be successful, wildland firefighters need lightweight and extremely durable tools.
This aluminum Double-Ended Wildland Fire Hose Spanner Wrench is ideal for tightening or loosening rocker lugs commonly found on wildland fire fighting hoses. It is durable enough to withstand conditions in the field without suffering any cracks, breaks, or other physical damage.
