Improved Fire-Hose System Promotes Efficiency and Swift Action - Designed by InventHelp Client ((BMA-4754)

Share Article

A leading invention firm, InventHelp is working to submit this idea, the PCV PUMP, to companies for their consideration.

An inventor from Worcester, Mass., is concerned about the ergonomics of managing fire hoses during emergency situations. "I’m a professional firefighter, and during a particular training exercise we had difficulty repositioning with the hose at full pressure," he said. "Effective firefighting requires split decisions and swift action, so anything that slows down firefighters is detrimental to the operation, and personnel health and safety." This inspired him to think of a way to improve the handling of fire hoses.

Ideal for all firefighters, the patent-pending PCV PUMP ensures better maneuverability of a live fire hose. It greatly reduces resistance when having to reposition or otherwise move the hose. As a result, it maintains swift action in order to fight fires more efficiently and in a much safer manner.

Featuring an ergonomic and easy-to-use design, the PCV PUMP is also producible in a version for retrofitting existing fire engines. Ultimately it's designed to contribute to the protection of lives and property.

It regulates the discharge pressure at the nozzle to and for the user’s comfort and desire. Also, it prevents the user from putting on him/herself the unnecessary force and effort that result in injury or death due to extreme physical and emotional exertion.

The original design was submitted to the Boston office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
