Each year there are more than 1 MILLION fires in the United States. 1,389,500 FIRES reported in the U.S. during 2011 484,500 were structure fires (35%) 218,000 vehicle fires (16%) 686,000 outside and other fires (49%)
EVERY 23 seconds firefighters respond to a blaze EVERY 46 seconds an outside fire is reported in the United States.

The Burning Question ...

Why are we using

TOXIC FLAME
RETARDANTS

to fight fires?

In the

PAST

water was the only option for putting out fires. Then came the advent of toxic flame retardants - chemical agents that enhance water by helping saturate surfaces so fires can be knocked down quicker.

In

2012

devastating wildfires scorched an area roughly the size of
Connecticut and Massachusetts combined.*

In the

PRESENT

most fire departments use toxic flame retardant to fight home, business, vehicle, and wildland fires. Some are sprayed directly on fires while others are used as barrier to prevent a fire from spreading.

These flame retardants are

  • INEFFECTIVE,

  • UNSAFE, and

  • DAMAGING

    to the environment.

Nine of the 10 hottest years in recorded history have occurred in the last 13 years.*

In the U.S. fire departments spend

$600 MILLION

annually on flame retardants that are ...

  • because they contain harmful surfactants, solvents and additives.
  • for the firefighters
    being exposed to them.
  • to perform because foam dissipates rapidly, leaving
    no protection.
  • ground water systems.
  • wildlife habitats and species.

In 2010, a U.S Federal District Court

judge ruled that the U.S. Forest Service violated the Environmental Policy Act by using aircraft to dump toxic chemicals on wildfires. But the spraying and dumping continues because firefighters must stop fires and protect property and lives.*

In 2008, more than

50 Million Gallons

of toxic treated water were used to fight wildland fires in California alone.

And our dependence on toxic flame retardants is only getting

WORSE

  • Rising temperatures and drought have the world poised for unprecedented wildfires and chemical dumping.
  • Since 1970, the fire season in the Western U.S. has increased by 78 days*.
  • There have only been three years where U.S. wildfires burned 9 million acres. All three took place during the past decade.
  • In 2012 alone, devastating wildfires scorched an area roughly the size of Connecticut and Massachusetts combined.*
  • Scientists estimate the amount of land burned in the Western U.S. will QUADRUPLE for every 1.8 F of temperature increase.*

Rising temperatures and drought have the world poised for unprecedented wildfires and chemical dumping.

What if we provided firefighters

WITH A
BETTER
TOOL?

A next-generation solution that is ...

  • MORE EFFICIENT
    at extinguishing all types of fires
  • LESS EXPENSIVE
    than existing foams
  • HEALTHIER
    for firefighters
  • SAFER
    for the environment
  • PREPARED
    to meet our future fire challenges

ATIRA Systems has created a

100% NON-TOXIC

Water Enhancing Fire Block Gel
that allows fire departments to

DO MORE WITH LESS.
It's an on-demand solution that seamlessly integrates with existing equipment, trucks and aircraft to perform 4-5X better than traditional flame retardants.

Unlike existing

PRODUCTS

our FBG1 and FBGAir fire block gels make water "stick and stay" on vertical structures ...
... Our formulation rapidly extinguishes blazes with a fire-consuming steam and forms a protective barrier that prevents fires from spreading.
... our solution makes it easier and quicker for firefighters to knock down urban and rural fires with LESS WATER, LESS EXPOSURE and LESS INCIDENT EXPENSES.

It's so powerful

it effectively turns a 300-gallon fire engine into a 3,000-gallon tactical tender.

Our Fire Block Gel Works ...

7-10X Better

Than Plain Water

4-5X Better

Than Existing Foams

Let's give our fire departments a tool
that allows them to ...

  • KNOCK

    down fires quickly

  • LIMIT

    the exposure of the firefighters

  • SAVE

    money & resources

  • REDUCE

    water damage to properties

  • ELIMINATE

    toxic run-off

  • PROTECT

    our environment

LET'S IMPROVE
THE WAY WE
FIGHT FIRES.
