    New Zealandís Ngaruawahia Fire Brigade Receives Jet Ski



    New Zealand’s Ngaruawahia Fire Brigade
    is the first fire squadron in the country to receive a Jetski. A fundraiser enabled the brigade to purchase the ski. The team raised $16,995 through sponsorships from local businesses, such as the Ngaruawahia Golf Club and the Horotiu based Kawasaki dealership, Nautique, donated $10,000.

    During my various lecture and finger wagging I often bring up the point that the flow out of a PWC pump at full go often exceeds that of a fire pumper, so going full throttle in shallow water is going to be trouble.

    A PWC that has this specialty pump adapter can throw enough water pressure into a hose to fight a fire and can be handy if your riverside cabin is burning and the road is too muddy for the pumper to get thru, even when it's a 4wd

    here's a small story on the use of a PWC jetpump for a few other noteworthy ventures

    btw, there is a PATENT on this type of system, wiseguys
