A patented, self-contained lifting deck cart/trailer which has the capability to haul heavy (1000 lbs.) kitchen equipment, including loaded warming ovens, over great distances in banquet or other food service settings, safely, easily and high maneuverability. The design allows the item of equipment to be wheeled onto a ground level lifting deck, then easily lifted off the ground for transport, while protecting the stability of the load. 

A dedicated cart/trailer equipped with a fire encapsulating agent tank, mixing valve, standpipe connection, hose and nozzle of a scale that permits PRE-first Responder access and maneuverability to quickly control potential electric vehicle battery and gasoline fires at charging stations, both within and outside parking garages. The ability to quickly address confined space fires and control a vehicle fire before first responders arrive dramatically effects the level of risk of a vehicle fire spreading, and mitigates liability for the facility owner
