FirePro HERO is a light, manually operated, handheld unit designed to deliver portable fire suppression. The HERO firefighting line is for use only by trained first responders, in order to slow down or halt the escalation of a fire. Following research and trials jointly conducted by government agencies, fire and rescue services, universities and insurance bodies resulted in HERO being adopted by both national and private fire and rescue services as a vital part of a modern firefighting strategy.
Deployment of a FirePro HERO manual unit by firefighters is proven to buy precious time, stop flashover and provide an emergency route through a wall of flames and/or even extinguish the fire and ultimately helping to save lives. Used by first responders, it can slow down a fire enough to allow firefighters to arrive and take over. FirePro HERO can also be used by energy companies in manhole fires and underground vaults.
Each FirePro HERO manual unit protects up to 12 m3 of volume, therefore, depending on the space to be protected, the corresponding number of FirePro HERO manual units are used. FirePro HERO are suited for use only by trained safety officers, police officers, firefighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians. As with all FirePro fire suppression systems, the FPC compound found inside the units is friendly to both humans and the environment.
