You don't use the same apparatus in the Wildland, why use the same lights?
When traditional firefighting meets off-road, your job not only gets more demanding, but more dangerous.
TOMAR offer unique solutions used by local and federal agencies to provide more reliable, more capable lighting when you need it the most.
With TOMAR’s Wildland Packages, you can turn virtually every red or blue warning light into what you need most in the brush…powerful white light.
Outfitted for Safety
Wildland Apparatus have unique missions, and encounter unique challenges from traditional fire-fighting. It took the vision of Wildland Fire Chiefs to design a lighting package which was more suited for these remote locations.
Today, departments continue to adapt these Wildland Lighting Packages, as they make the change from “standard” NFPA 1906 packages. Take a tour around a popular Type 3 lighting package, offered from some of the leaders in the Wildland Apparatus space.
HOW TOMAR wildland stacks up
Incorporating TOMAR’s Dual-Mode Technology; TRX Off-Road Dual-Color Lightbars; and sturdy, sealed design; the outcome of the new Wildland Package was obvious at first sight.
The 360 degree coverage of powerful white scene light, without the need for often-broken pole-lights, gave this package streamlined, rugged durability. The Scorpion or Black Widow Lightbar above the cab, with it’s extruded aluminum housing, added to the overall protection of the lights in the bush.
We took the new TOMAR Wildland Lighting Package, a drone, and three of the competitors “high-end” LED packages, and made a comparison. The results were clear.

THE TOMAR DIFFERENCE
Every light TOMAR manufacturers is sealed from air, moisture, and dust through a TOMAR-Patented Vibration-Weld. This means no lights TOMAR manufactures need rubber or silicon gaskets to seal them. This is a significant increase to reliability, and decrease in costs both initially and over the life of the apparatus.
Next, TOMAR’s Optics are more efficient. We employ custom designs which make more effective use of the LED’s Lumens. It also means putting the light where it’s meant to go. Finally, TOMAR delivers lights that not only meet NFPA requirements, but work as hard as you do. When flashing warning lights are no longer needed, such as remote, wild-land environments, TOMAR warning lights can double as bright, effective, additional work or scene lights using our Dual-Mode Technology.
