Fast Fire Response would be designed for faster rotation than
conventional fire-hydrant wrenches. The sturdy tool would increase the
speed at which hoses could be deployed at a fire, which could result in
the ability to put out fires more quickly and efficiently.

inventor, a firefighter, came up with the idea through occupational
experience. "I was frustrated with how long it takes to open fire
hydrants using conventional wrenches. I made this tool for faster
rotation," he said. "It offers quicker set up times at a fire scene for
the fire service because it's a faster, more efficient way to open and
close fire hydrants."

original design was submitted to the Salt Lake City office of Invention
Submission Corp. It is available for licensing or sale to manufacturers
or marketers.
