Phos-Chek® Mobile Retardant bases are used to support forward attack operations using all aerial platforms. Units are designed to support large-scale helicopter, air tanker, and VLAT operations, as well as smaller-scale SEAT deployments. Our LC Trailer is available to provide mobile retardant storage in support of SEAT or helicopter operations at remote tanker bases.
Perimeter Solutions’ custom designed Phos-Chek Ground Applied units are designed for the accurate placement of retardant (or gel) from the ground. Ground applied operations can be done 24 hours a day. In adverse weather conditions, when air tankers cannot fly, or in the event air tankers aren’t available, a Phos-Chek Ground Applied unit can deploy retardant for fire line construction, burnout operations, and community protection.
All Phos-Chek personnel are fully trained and fire ground certified.
