The climate is changing - summers are getting drier. The most common cause of forest fires is arson through carelessness. A small spark is enough to set the fire ablaze.
The operation in a forest fire must be well prepared and well thought out: Forest fire hoses, like special picks and patches as tools, are absolutely part of the firefighters' equipment when fighting forest fires.
If the terrain is difficult to access, there are practical backpacks or the GH hose pack carrying system especially for forest fires as a hose reserve.

In vegetation and wildland firefighting, the courageous efforts of firefighters on the ground are indispensable. This is because trees do not burn as quickly if there is no heat energy, i.e. heat, coming from the ground. In addition, adjacent forests or buildings are wetted with water to contain the spread of flames.
The big challenge is getting to the source of the fire. We know!
