Mumbai Fire Brigade to Acquire Fire Fighting Robots

The Mumbai Fire Brigade department has decided to procure robots for extinguishing fire and has given up the previous idea of acquiring water monitors, which can be remotely operated.

In 2009, the fire department had purchased 100 jackets which are impenetrable by bullets. Their plan to procure water monitors was an initiative to enhance fire fighting efficiency following the 26/11 terror attacks as well as to ensure security of the firemen during such risky operations.

Uday Tatkare, Chief Fire Officer, has stated that the fire robots can be remotely controlled to put out fire. He mentioned that the water monitors are not cost-effective; hence they had changed their decision. He added that this new bid is still in a preliminary stage and they are yet to decide on any company, which can offer them such robots that are deployed in Israel.
