Vehicle fire suppression systems (VFSS) are the first line of defence for operators to safely escape equipment if there is a fire. Along with keeping your staff safe, VFSS is critical for protecting your equipment. Having a properly installed and working VFSS mitigates the risk of downtime and replacing expensive equipment. Both of these risks have costly impacts on your business.
