We are PAC+CARE.

We are PAC+CARE. Specialised PPE/C Managed Services.

“A growing focus on firefighter health and well-being has shone a spotlight on the importance of regular cleaning of PPE/C. Accumulated soiling can reduce thermal and electrical insulation resulting in the PPE/C becoming flammable while contaminants and particulates on PPE/C also negatively impact firefighter health.”

We are PAC+CARE. Specialised PPE/C Managed Services.Australian federal and territory legislation requires fire and emergency services to safeguard the health and safety of their employees at work.

In a continuing commitment to protecting responder health and well being while ensuring longevity of PPE/C, Pac Fire is proud to introduce PAC+CARE. PAC+CARE is a flexible managed service which utilises the latest in laundering technology and includes a state of the art filtration system. Thus ensuring potentially damaging contaminants removed from clothing and equipment whilst protecting the environment.

WHAT SETS PAC+CARE APART?

EFFECTIVE CLEANING During fires, PPE/C can become contaminated with a wide range of chemical, biological and particulate contaminants that are hazardous. If not removed properly, these contaminants could significantly affect personal protection and the PPE/C’s longevity but more importantly, have adverse effects on firefighter health.

At PAC+CARE we target the most prevalent and persistent contaminants in firefighter protective wear, combat these with best practice methodology, state of the art washing and drying technology while utilising the latest chemical inactivation. This yields a significant reduction in contaminant load, mitigating the effects of exposure to firefighters and ensures Service’s PPE/C has a prolonged operational life.

VALIDATING OUR CLEANING PAC+CARE commissions NATA accredited laboratories to assess the efficiency of their laundering process.

This is achieved by sampling test fabric soiled with predetermined contaminants under laboratory conditions and benchmarking these results against a clearly defined performance criteria. Services can be assured that PAC+CARE’s cleaning process is independently verified and certified as being of the highest quality and is continuously being confirmed by internationally recognised organisations.

LAUNDRY FILTRATION SYSTEM PAC+CARE’s filtration system is designed to ensure that contaminants removed from clothing and equipment do not end up in precious water ways. PAC+CARE’s state of the art filtration system treats water to industry-best standard by removing contaminants associated with firefighting while safeguards are in place to mitigate the risk of any environmental impact caused by spill or discharge of effluent. This is all backed by PAC+CARE’s comprehensive testing regime which ensures the filtration systems effectiveness.

BEST PRACTICE INSPECTION Early identification of damage to protective clothing and equipment is essential to preventing degradation and identifying early warning signs that the item is unfit for purpose.

Supercharge your response time

Blowhard Fans and Pac Fire Australia - partners for over 8 years

Pac Fire and Blowhard Fans have a long standing and prosperous relationship spanning more than 8 years.

Blowhard Fans have single handedly revolutionised the way ventilation in emergency situations is approached.

Blowhard’s BH-20 PPV fan has been designed for high pressure to effectively drive ventilation. The high velocity jet stream produced by the BH-20 assists in building pressure to effectively clear smoke from the structure.

Boasting unique design and construction, the BH-20 is lighter, smaller, incredibly durable and more powerful than other fans on the market today.

The soft start motor can be powered with both a mains outlet or Blowhard’s long lasting, Li-Ion battery pack. This feature allows the fan to be set up faster and started instantly – in some instances cutting down response time by up to 6 minutes. Weighing only 27kgs, Blowhards ergonomic design which includes a shoulder strap, allows the fan to be repositioned while still running. It’s compact design allows it to be used in difficult, hard to reach spaces while also saving valuable space on emergency response vehicles.

Supercharge your response time with the BH-20 from Blowhard.

Blowhard Fans are available throughout Australia and New Zealand from Pac Fire.
