)-- An innovative and effective new product designed to solve a common problem for fire personnel, the Compact Fire Hose Cart, has been developed by Roger Eagle of Huger, South Carolina. The invention’s unique design provides its users with a convenient and much more efficient way of transporting a fire hose back to a truck and reloading.
Fire professionals face a number of very real perils in their everyday tasks, so the various cumbersome duties that also come with the job pale in importance when compared. However, this does not mean that methods of making the overall job more efficient shouldn’t be explored. For example, one area that could benefit from some streamlining is the task of transporting fire hoses to and from trucks. Beyond just making a labor intensive task easier, a product that would improve efficiency in this area could also prove crucial to helping fire personnel carry out their duties.
To this end, the Compact Fire Hose Cart has been conceived. The overriding purpose of the Compact Fire Hose Cart will be to facilitate the task of loading a fire hose back onto a truck. The Compact Fire Hose Cart will greatly lessen the chances of back injuries caused by attempts to roll and transport hoses through other methods. Furthermore, it will prove to be a great asset for the necessary laying out of hoses during hose testing. The product will also prove significantly more cost effective than motorized hose rollers. Additionally, through its proprietary features, the Compact Fire Hose Cart will save fire units considerable time and manpower.
The inventor, who is a Fire Captain and Emergency Medical Technician, has also developed a working prototype of the Compact Fire Hose Cart that he has utilized personally with success. The Compact Fire Hose Cart is also currently in patent pending status with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Mr. Eagle now seeks a third party licensee to manufacture, market, and distribute the product for him under a royalty agreement. Potential licensees in the fire safety products industry are currently being targeted as candidates to eventually commercialize the Compact Fire Hose Cart on a worldwide basis.
In January 2013, Mr. Eagle contracted product management services leader Innovation Direct™ to represent the Compact Fire Hose Cart to potential licensees for a 2 year period. Innovation Direct™ obtains the maximum amount of exposure for the products that it represents through its unique and patented licensing methodology and its participation in multiple and diverse industry-leading trade shows each year.
