A new water 'lance' which can punch through doors, walls and roofs is being rolled out across Kent. The groundbreaking piece of kit delivers a super fine mist that immediately reduces the temperature and put out fires. It uses a fraction of the water of a traditional hose and causes less damage.
It's been trialled on an appliance in Margate and has been used on seven occasions since August last year. This included a workshop fire in Doddington where oil and other chemicals were stored. Kent Fire & Service are also replacing 21 appliances with new models and trialling all terrain vehicles.
