Recent ordinances in Canada and the United States make local fire departments responsible for providing drinking water in the event of a major power loss. The Township of Langley Fire Department, in BC, Canada, is in an earthquake-prone area and they are leading the way in disaster preparedness. Langley FD recently took delivery of seven PuriFire®
4S10F water purification systems on Spartan ERV apparatus, sold and serviced by Safetek Emergency Vehicles. Darley supplied Spartan with the pump modules equipped with PuriFire® Systems.
The 4S10F PuriFire® System is designed to supply drinking water from freshwater sources contaminated by natural or man-made disasters. The 4S10F system is a compact, self-contained, fire pump-driven, water purification system that uses advanced filtration and chemical-free disinfection technology. It is mounted inside a fire truck pump module with a dedicated control panel on the officer’s side for easy operation and maintenance. It provides a quick-delivery system that one operator can set up and operate within five minutes of deployment. The 4S10F system can produce 600 gallons per hour of drinking water.
