PURDUE IN FIRE DEPARTMENT CALLED TO IL TIRE PLANT WITH ROBOT TECHNOLOGY

Purdue’s firefighting robot rolled into Wednesday’s fire at the Hoopeston, Ill., tire shredding factory with something to prove. When it limped out four hours later, it was broken, but it made its mark.

“We were able to deploy this and put it approximately 150 to 175 feet into a partial collapsed warehouse facility,” Purdue Fire Chief Kevin Ply said Thursday morning as the department showed off the battle-tested machine. “From that location, we were able to apply water on some of the plant that was not accessible from other means.

“It did have an impact.”

The relatively small, 400-pound, orange robot travels on thick rubber treads and takes its marching orders from a remote control panel worn by the operator.

NEW QUICK STEP ANCOR FOR ROOF WORK

 A Springfield, MA FD captain's invention that is coming on the market now which is a portable safety step to me used while working on roofs, especially ventilation work.

Capt. Robert Duffy, who has 19 years on the job, spent three years designing, refining and creating the prototype of what he calls the Quick Step Anchor.


Made of aircraft-grade aluminum, the Quick Step Anchor weighs only 11 pounds and provides a secure and stable working platform for firefighters as they use chainsaws and other tools to cut into the roofs of burning buildings. It includes a safety lanyard, which doubles as a carrying strap, that secures firefighters to the roof in the event of a fall.
