The Turtle Fire System was designed and developed to adapt to the ever-evolving fire service and to support the safety of fellow firefighters and the communities they serve. While it was born out of the need to address the growing concern of electric vehicle fires, the applications for the Turtle Fire System stretch far beyond its original design.

Below are additional suggested applications for the Turtle Fire System:

  • Suppress thermal runaway on Electric Vehicles
  • Mitigate EV fires long enough to allow time for occupant rescue
  • Can be deployed and supplied with low flow, as a precautionary measure under any vehicle at risk of ignition after a motor vehicle accident
  • Cooling flammable liquid and fuel tanks
  • Exposure protection
  • Basement fires
  • Deep seated fires in untenable or hard to reach areas of a structure
  • Decontamination of firefighters, civilians, hose, equipment, or fire apparatus
  • Hazmat incidents
  • Maritime applications such as port-hubs accepting shipments of EV and hybrid vehicles, on ferries, etc.
  • Bridges and tunnels
  • Parking structures
  • Parking lots
