GelTech has recently developed the patent pending Emergency Manhole FireIce Delivery System (EMFIDS) which is an innovative system designed to deliver a mixture of FireIce and water into a manhole in order to coat the ladder and the utility worker in the event of an incident involving an explosion or fire in the manhole while utility workers are performing routine repairs or maintenance.
