Proudly deploying Sprinkler Trailers and Kits
We proudly use and deploy SPIEDR sprinkler trailers and kits. They are custom designed trailer units that provide protection from wildfire and they can be towed anywhere by a full sized pick-up truck. They are mobile structure protection units, built to protect homes, buildings, and other structures from the threat of wildfire. They are specially designed to be utilized in wildland fire emergencies and come loaded with an inventory of sprinkler equipment that can be deployed to wherever it’s most needed.
