Phos-Chek Mobile Retardant bases are used to support forward attack operations using all aerial platforms. Units are capable of supporting large scale helicopter, airtanker 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.
ICL’s custom designed 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 airtankers cannot fly, or in the event airtankers 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.
