Jetpack firefighting system showcased in Dubai

A firefighting system involving a jet ski and water-powered jetpack has been showcased in Dubai.

From ABC...

Dubai is now taking firefighting techniques to new heights — literally.
Further cementing its reputation as one of the world's most technologically advanced cities, Dubai has invested in water jetpack systems for firefighting.
A video released by the Dubai Civil Defence demonstrates firefighting like never seen before.
The firefighter uses a jet pack to rise above a bridge, by using water pressure from the attached jet ski, before using a fire hose to douse a car which is made to look like it is alight.
This innovative firefighting system called Dolphin has been launched in an effort to reduce response times as firefighters can get to the scene without battling heavy traffic on the roads.
The waterways also provide an unlimited source of water for firefighting and grant easy access to any fires on boats and shoreline buildings.
Last week Lieutenant Colonel Ali Al Mutawa, head of operations at Dubai Civil Devence, said floating firestations to allow blazes to be tackled from the Dubai Canal may be on their way.
Since 2012, a spate of fires has struck Dubai and other city-states in the United Arab Emirates.
The infernos all behaved the same way, rushing up and down the sides of buildings and most were fuelled by paneling on the sides of buildings.
Dubai's rapid growth and corner-cutting builders and regulators unaware of the danger the panelling posed led to its widespread use, experts say.

Oh Dubai...

And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future.

Well, considering it IS Dubai, necessity is the mother of invention because of all their stupid tall buildings.

I hope this kind of fire fighting spreads world wide.


It is too cool not too.
