You expect to find firefighters at a fire department. But what you may not expect to find is a firefighting robot like the one on display at the Greenwood Fire Department in Moosic. It's called the Super Vac TAF 35 Mobile Firefighting Robot. It's remote-controlled and can pour 1,200 gallons of water a minute on a fire. "The video surveillance that it has on it also has thermal imaging, so it could help for looking for occupants in the building or looking for hotspots of the fire. right here in Moosic, we are looking at starting just over a million square foot warehouse, so that's a lot of ground to cover," said Buddy Miller, Greenwood Fire Department. "Sending an unmanned unit in, in the event of a potential collapse hazard, it allows you to get into the deep seed of a fire without endangering some of your firefighter lives," said Dana Shaffer, SuperVac Manufacturing.
