A Brand Born From Tragedy
On 2 December 1998, five fire fighters were trapped and killed while undertaking a parallel attack on the Linton fire near Geelong, Victoria. All were volunteer members of the Geelong West Country Fire Authority brigade and were working in close proximity to the Lara CFA brigade. The victims were well known to the members of the Lara CFA brigade and this was a terrible tragedy.
It was then the Lara-based company, RAPP Australia Pty Ltd added fire material and prevention products to their range. It also prompted the development and manufacture of the Fire Weather Kit, a product that used with the Wiltronics Fine Fuel Moisture Meter has continued to be improved and upgrade as it is depended upon by many emergency services professionals and volunteers, throughout Australia and around the world.
Thus the firelogistics brand was born to design, manufacture and distribute high performance fire fighting equipment and rescue gear to assist fire fighters to complete their tasks successfully and ensure more importantly, their safe return.
