The year started with summarizing the experience from the ERIA tests at MSB in Revinge (Early Responders Innovation Area). The report talks about the extinguishing effect of 12m distance, recovery times of up to 10 minutes and the ability to prevent a backdraft from developing. The report can be found in swedish on this web page.
Close thereafter started the only Swedish innovation competition specifically focused on fire and safety – Brinnovation. It resulted in a place on the podium with Pulverlansen, in city hall. What an award and what a party! In addition to the mention of the Fire Protection Association that organized the competition, a personal report was made in Jönköpingsposten with both the front and center spread and Rescue Plankan from Räddsam F also mentioned Pulverlansen and the innovation award in their magazine.
During the summer the brave pioneers with Pulverlansen started to give feedback. I have received stories saying: “The fire just sucked in and extinguished.” “They asked what miracle agent is used?”, “Pulverlansen is much better”, “FIP (first responding person) extinguished two fires the same week with Pulverlansen”, “We are very happy with Pulverlansen”.
The first orders after the award was delivered over the border to Norway and to Iceland. The Swedish Powder Lance is a well performing product that responds to a clear message through Swedish seminaries and reports during the past few years – We need more efficient efforts and shorten our time to respond to fires.
Now at the end of the year Pulverlansen has received the finest of confirmations, namely three returning customers. Exemplary fire services who dared to be pioneers and who now show the way by equipping their fire services with more Powder Lances and quick-connected powder extinguishers. A big thank you goes to Jönköping and Kalmar for your renewed trust!
If your fire service also is interested in getting Pulverlansen delivered before the end of the year, it is now time to place your order. Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with your request or order directly on the website swedishpowderlance.com
I wish you all heroes out there a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
