Dependable Fire Suppression Equipment Saves Lives

Posted on 05/16/2024

ALWYS WORKING: Fire and rescue support hose or cable reels


Firefighters and first responders need to be ready to respond to emergencies at a moment’s notice. There are many aspects of fire suppression, such as foam and water spraying, hazmat cleanup, and more. All of these require reliable equipment that deploys quickly and stands up to extreme conditions to extinguish fires and save people and property.


Creating solutions for fire and rescue workers.

Each emergency is different, and crews need to be ready for anything. Hannay manufactures reels specifically for the uncertainty of the fire and rescue industry. Hannay Booster Reels are ideal for quick-strike fire suppression for small fires and crash situations. Booster reels help control dangerous situations while first responders work to set up larger-volume hoses.


Durability is key, but because firefighters require so much equipment to do their job, the tools must be designed to fit in tight spaces. Hannay portable reels are compact, lightweight, and easy to use. Hannay’s custom design options make it possible for firefighting operations to get exactly what they need for their vehicle specifications.


Working with industry leaders to improve fire suppression.

Efficient fire suppression is crucial to communities around the country, so it’s no surprise there are many companies who are dedicated to improving industry equipment. In many cases, these companies work together to create the best possible solutions. Industry leaders like Feld Fire, KIMTEK and RKO Enterprises have turned to Hannay Fire and Rescue Reels to elevate the fire-suppression capabilities of their products.


Feld Fire manufactures equipment that makes it easier for firefighters to remain safe in areas that are hard to access. Feld Fire Fire-Suppression Skids are self-contained firefighting units, equipped with components like tanks, pumps, and hoses. Matt Klocke, Manufacturing and Sales Supervisor at Feld Fire, says they’ve never considered using any other company’s reels for their skids: “I’ve been here 24 years, and we’ve been using Hannay reels since I started. The quality is the number one reason I like using Hannay.”



KIMTEK also works with Hannay Reels to manufacture specialized fire and rescue equipment. KIMTEK offers FIRELITE® Transport Fire/Rescue Skids that hold water and pump, and a hose and reel so operators can access remote sites. The Hannay 4000 Series reel is used for KIMTEK skids on small- and medium-sized trucks. KIMTEK’s UTV skids help streamline operations for fire and rescue teams, making it possible for extensive work to be completed by fewer people in crowded urban settings. “After a lot of exposure to both career and volunteer departments, I knew that if there was a good reel out there, it was always a Hannay reel,” says KIMTEK Founder and President, Kimball Johnson.


RKO Enterprises manufactures small-utility, side-by-side rescue vehicles and has worked with Hannay for over 20 years. These rescue units are regularly used for emergencies in both urban and off-road environments for wildland fire operations, fire watch missions, search-and-rescue missions, managing controlled burns, or transporting first responders.“Down to the nuts and bolts, Hannay is the most dependable reel on the market. Everything about it is top quality, right down to the people I deal with at the company,” says Kieth Olson, owner of RKO Enterprises.


WATERAX was founded on a passion for producing portable fire pumps for forestry firefighters in demanding applications and rugged environments. When they decided to update their RANCHER® Series unit, designed for use on small utility vehicles and ATVs, for attack line firefighting and spot fire patrol or rapid intervention in remote areas, they chose the Hannay 1800 series reel as it fit seamlessly into the existing product and stayed in line with the other lightweight, affordable and high-pressure pumps at WATERAX.
