Between 2010 and 2019, the damage from wildfires in the US increased 74.5% to $14.8 billion. Property owners are responsible for managing their own fire restoration efforts, and that process requires generators, pumps, dehumidifiers, and other specialized equipment. If you find yourself in such a situation, Sunbelt Rentals can help provide the fire restoration equipment and supplies you need, such as:
When the fire is out, there’s a good chance the power will be out, too.

Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that Sunbelt Rentals is ready with your wildfire equipment if and when you need it.
Smoke from wildfires and the water used to fight them can cause a lot of unseen damage. Smoke releases toxins into the air and can pose severe health risks depending on the length and intensity of exposure. During a wildfire smoke event, the EPA recommends running a portable air cleaner to maintain healthy indoor air quality. Water used to battle a fire can seep into walls and promote mold growth. Sunbelt dehumidifiers, fans, negative air machines, and air scrubbers help mitigate harmful airborne particulates, smoke and water damage from wildfires.
Wildfire recovery involves removing debris from the site. Vegetation, building materials, and personal items damaged beyond repair pose health hazards and stand in the way of restoration efforts. Sunbelt Rentals can help you to clear the clutter with an array of debris removal equipment, from hand trucks and dollies to forklifts and trailers.
High pressure pumps are often essential when fighting wildfires. Portable pumps used to deliver water from a natural source – like a creek, pool, or retention pond – can create a protective barrier against fire approaching your property and drench small grass fires. Additionally, after fires have been doused, you may need to remove water from the area and require the aid of dewatering pumps. Sunbelt Rentals has you covered with an extensive pump rental fleet that includes wildfire equipment such as diesel and electric powered pumps of various sizes.
The 2018 wildfire season was the worst in all recorded history. As fires ravaged, they also turned the air toxic. The smoke put millions at risk of serious health problems. Contractors large and small looked to Sunbelt Rentals for help improving air quality.READ MORE
