Comox Fire Rescue receives another order of gutter-mounted sprinkler systems

Comox Fire Rescue has just received another order of the wildfire protection roof sprinklers.

During a wildfire, embers can be carried a long distance. Hot embers can easily ignite a dry roof or surrounding area.

The Wildfire Automated Sprinkler Protection (WASP) gutter-mounted sprinkler system helps protect your home from these hot embers.

The wildfire protection kits provide a simple and quick way to get water on your roof and surrounding area, and they are available at the Comox fire hall.

WASP is a trusted manufacturer of sprinkler equipment sold to fire departments throughout North America.

The kits are quick and easy to install and come with everything needed to help protect a standard size home. No ladders or tools are required.

These kits have proven to be extremely popular with Comox Valley residents, as this is the fourth order the Comox Fire Rescue has received.

“Our last three orders sold out within days so we expect these will go fast also as the weather is certainly heating up now,” said Comox Fire Gord Schreiner. “Our fire department uses these same sprinklers in our structural protection trailer and throughout our province. They are designed to be quickly deployed in an area threatened by wildfire. We are pleased to be able to offer these to citizens so they can be better prepared in case of a wildfire in our area.”

The kits sell for $154.99 each and come with two adjustable, agricultural-grade sprinkler heads designed to conserve water and work on very low pressure if required, two mounting brackets and two forestry grade flat garden-type hoses.
