Australian Pump Industries is well prepared for 2007’s fire season. Super high temperatures in early spring, with major fire outbreaks, are significant indicators of the coming summer.
Winter rains in coastal areas have also brought on undergrowth and authorities warn that it only takes three or four days of 30° plus temperatures to dry that underbrush out to real danger levels.
Australian Pump Industries has boosted production quantities of the Aussie Fire Chief to help combat the threat likely to be posed to suburban and rural acreage dwellers.
The Aussie Fire Chief is stocked by Aussie Pump Gold Distributors throughout Australia, who provide consumers with good advice and support.
“Many Aussie Pump Gold Distributors operate virtually 24 hours a day, seven days a week, when customers are under threat. We back them by running the factory double shifts and in the past have even opened on Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day holidays to keep the supply of our product up to consumers who are under fire threat.”
Australian Pump staffs have a strong sense of community responsibility and have a record of coming in from annual vacations when fires threaten.
“It’s typical of Australian Pump staff to find people coming in from their vacation, sometimes travelling hundreds of kilometres, when fires are ragging and the chips are down,” said Whiteley.
Australian Pump will keep its record high production levels running through summer, with particular emphasis on diesel drive pumps with Yanmar and Kubota diesel engines.
Australian Pump has produced a handy fire protection guide for domestic and farm users. The guide gives useful data on how to set up a pump protection system at minimal cost and provides details of how to prepare properties for what may be a very bad fire season.
