Firebozz® is a rapid-deploy water-sprinkler-like cannon for fighting fires at reduced cost and increased safety while conserving water.
A single cannon can shoot water, foam or retardants up to 100 metres in radius with a full 360-degree traverse. It can be connected with other Firebozz® units to create rapid and expanded firebreak capability. Weighing 20 kilograms the Firebozz® can be carried and deployed in less than a minute offering
Firebozz® allows setup and movement of firebreaks easily with minimal manpower.
A single Firebozz® unit can replace between 10-20 traditional sprinkler heads. There is no specialised equipment needed to purchase in order to run the units. Firebozz® works with existing portable pumps, pumper trucks, hydrants and standard 1.5” and 2.5” hoses. Firebozz® is compatible with foam or retardants to conserve water. Coverage area is immediate and effective with penetration of the forest canopy and loading of ambient air moisture. Stand–alone, “set-and-forget” capability keeps fire-fighters out of danger and allows teams to be deployed in other areas allowing better utilisation of assets.

Firebozz® offers unprecedented water projection capability in a small package with no specialised fittings or assembly required.
Can be used “out of the box” with little set up time and left to run with minimal support. Requires no specialised training in order to operate. Easily set up and moved, a small crew can establish a minimal protective envelope of 100 x 400 metres with four cannons in less than 20 minutes (proved by Yukon Wildland Fire). Less labour and wider coverage equals reduced fire-fighting costs and less fire damage. They can be deployed and left to run with minimal oversight, allowing more effective use of existing personnel.
“Water usage is 30% that of standard equipment, this is a considerable advantage. A water canon that has a radius of action of 150 ft. is an exceptional increase over currently available technology. For its described and intended purpose, the innovation is an exceptional advance on the state of the art and can serve as a new benchmark.”

There are few disasters more devastating than forest fire. Without the proper fire protection, your world can change in the blink of an eye. Losing your home or any property to wildfire is traumatic in many ways. Not only does the displacement caused by lack of shelter uproot your entire life or business, but the loss of property, including precious memories or keepsakes, can take a huge emotional toll on you and your family.
Firebozz forest fire fighting equipment works to prevent the devastation of forest fires. Our fire fighting sprinkler system is field-tested and rapidly deployable, to counteract wildfire damage before it’s too late.
