Thanks to the use of lightweight but exceptionally durable properties of carbon fibre and Kevlar, the new Carbon Infinity hovercraft has a superior payload capability, which enables a crew of 2 plus the addition of the high-performance twin discharge pump, foam monitor, optional handheld branchpipe and 100 Litre foam storage. Quick deployment, multiple rescue uses. This option further extends the rescue capabilities of the Carbon Infinity Hovercraft presently used for mud and ice rescues.
Fixings for the fire fighting module enable quick deployment, so when not configured for firefighting applications, the hovercraft can also be retrofitted with the victim carrying stretcher for mud, ice and water rescue situations. Air pumps can be added to help reduce suction during mud rescues.
The Carbon Infinity Hovercraft is easy to operate with minimum operator training required. Reaching fire victims in inaccessible areas.

Where can I use the Fire Fighting Hov Pod
The Hov Pod bespoke fire fighting option tackles fires around airport perimeter lakes, mudflats, tidal areas, ice. Snow, or indeed in any areas difficult to access by regular fire truck.
Many locations are inaccessible to regular fire fighting trucks, so the Carbon Infinity can quickly deliver fire-fighting equipment to tackle emergencies.
Homes and chalets built on stilts are very often in shallow waters or mud so are inaccessible to boats and hard to get to by other means owing to distance from shoreline.
Equally homes on small islands in ice seasons are impossible to reach. The system can also be deployed for flood rescue work where a high-volume pump is required to low water levels, at 1 bar 1800 litres flow/minute
