ABSTRACT
This article reports that advances in power technology and packaging design have produced several new portable generators and lights that are smaller, lighter and easier to operate. They give firefighters greater flexibility in providing power and illumination to handle a wide variety of incidents. One example is the line of compact portable inverter generators offered by Yamaha. They are available in output ratings of 1,000 to 3,000 watts with features that include spark-arresting mufflers, low-oil warning systems and high efficiency noise insulation packages that make them almost silent.
