About Us

The Workhorse is designed by Initial Attack Tools Inc.
Engineered for Firefighter Safety
Made in the USA

My wildland firefighting experience comes from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, where I envisioned a tool to assist firefighters.  My vision was simple: to make the task of fighting wildland and structure fires more efficient and promote firefighter safety. The Workhorse was developed to assist Firefighters in the wildland urban interface (WUI). Whether it is a two or three-person progressive hose lay, scaling steep terrain or structure protection, hose weight, resistance and fatigue eventually set in. Using The Workhorse will assist Firefighters to move forward in a controlled manner while carrying a charged hose with less strenuous effort, while promoting Firefighter safety. A more mobile and less fatigued Firefighter will have greater endurance to perform longer hose lays and structure protection, while saving lives and property. The Workhorse was engineered for Firefighter safety.  

Initial Attack Tools Inc. is very grateful to have California Firefighters demo The Workhorse and provide remarkable feedback.  Although The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and The University of California Fire Department are not affiliated with Initial Attack Tools Inc. we look forward to working with all Local State and Federal Agencies in the near future.
