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.
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.
“Our fire department uses these same sprinklers in our structural protection trailer and throughout our province,” said Comox Fire Gord Schreiner. “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. Any profits made from this project will be reinvested by the fire department into additional interface fire equipment.
