The phenomenon of forest fires expands geographically and temporally each year. Forest fires are increasingly starting to appear in winter or in northern regions of the world, which are not used to deal with forest fires.
The causes of the increase in fires are mainly human (cigarette butts, wild fires, etc.), but also climatic. These disasters cause dramatic events such as pollution, loss of life, extinction of animal and plant species, destruction of material goods …
In order to combat these devastating events, POK has developed a whole range of products dedicated to forest fires, including nozzles, backpacks, taps, shutoffs, non-return valves, waterwall nozzles and wyess.
These products have been designed to provide solutions for all situations that firefighters may encounter during a wildland or forest fire fight.
Thus, each of the POK teams contributes in its own way to wildland firefighting.
