(Bend, OR) Inventor and entrepreneur David Johnston of Deschutes River Manufacturing demonstrates the Rookie Sidekick fire hose roller with the help of his daughter.

Wildland, industrial, municipal and volunteer fire departments throughout the U.S. and Canada use the Rookie Sidekick and Rookie Reloader, for re-decking rolled fire hose.

Customers include Union Carbide-Dow Chemical, Marathon Oil, Conoco-Phillips, Exxon-Mobil, Suncor, Valero Oil Refinery, Nebraska Power, Los Alamos National Laboratory, British Columbia Dept. of Energy, Fluor Hanford, Georgia Pacific, USFS, BLM, BIA, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, TEEX, CAL-FIRE Academy, Washington State Fire Academy and volunteer and municipal fire departments of all sizes.
