M Fire Holdings Launches Proactive Wild Fire Defense Systems
As Fire technologists we have set out to remove the threat of wild fire loss for California property owners. Our defensive systems are an investment that sprays our safe clean fire inhibitor chemistry when you are told to evacuate. We have proven our chemistry over and over in fire training facilities all around the US in front of hundreds of fie officials. When our chemistry is sprayed in advance of an approaching wild fire you have the best fire defense the world has ever known.
To be clear: Climate change is definitely a factor in the growing severity of Australia’s fire risks. And there is no arson emergency in Australia; the number of arrests for arson being cited is wrong. In fact, the Fox article in Hannity’s tweet debunks his headline:
“The fires, fueled by drought and the country’s hottest and driest year on record, have been raging since September, months earlier than is typical for Australia’s annual wildfire season. So far, the blazes have killed 25 people, destroyed 2,000 homes and scorched an area twice the size of the state of Maryland,” reports Fox News.
“The NSW Police Force announced Monday that since Nov. 8, authorities have taken legal action against 183 people for fire-related offenses, including 24 individuals who have been charged for allegedly deliberately lighting bushfires — a crime punishable by up to 21 years in prison,” adds Fox.
Let’s unpack what’s going on here. The source of the “nearly 200” people being charged with arson claim is a news release from the New South Wales Police Forceon January 6, 2020. What the release actually says is that legal action was taken against 183 people since November 8, 2019, for fire-related offenses, including things like improperly discarding cigarettes or not taking enough precautions around machinery, i.e. not arson. Legal action “ranges from cautions through to criminal charges,” according to NSW police, so not everyone is being charged with a crime. And not all of these penalties are for incidents linked to the wildfires.
The bottom line is whether it's climate change or arson lighting fire, it does not matter as much as we have to get better at defending structures by embracing much much better and safer chemistry than the firefighters are using today, and it's here now. We challenged anyone to compare our chemistry to the hundred of millions of dollars spent in dropping fire retardants from planes. We use less, with no environmental impact and we will stop fire better that any foam, gel or fire retardant that has ever been used.
