MFB Proactive Wild Fire Defense Systems Are Similar To Why Forts Had Moats

March 17, 2020 by Steve Conboy

Even homes as large and spread out as the home pictured above can be defended when we use each elevation to deploy clean fire inhibitor to saturate the buildings and all around the home to create a wild fire moat to keep the fire away from the structures. When we add our roof vent ember defender this home would be safer then ever before during wild fire season. When our MFB Proactive Defense System is turned on during a wild fire evacuation our fire inhibitor chemistry is sprayed similar to how interior sprinkler systems work only difference is water is only our delivery agent, when it dries, it leaves behind our chemistry clinging to everything (ie. house, roof, trees and vegetation.)

Our chemistry is designed to remove the strength of even a wind driven wild fires by chemically interrupting the generation of free radicals and that shuts a fire ability to continue to advance. Keep in mind when you return and your house is still there you do not have to clean off our chemistry. Mighty Fire Breaker Proactive Wild Fire Defense Systems helps to remove the threat of loss to insurance underwriters that are willing to take the time to understand the applied fire science and test results. Just like seat belts there is no guarantee but doing nothing today in Wildland fire areas homes should not expect the insurance companies to should your risk of doing nothing.

As a defense mechanism moats were very effective. Although they're usually depicted as wide, deep bodies of water, moats were often simply dry ditches. Some moats surrounded the castle itself, while other moats might have enclosed several buildings or even a small town.

Moats filled with water were usually supplied by a nearby source of water, such as a spring lake, or river. Dams could be built that would control the level of water in the moat. While some fancy moats may have had stone sides, most moats had simple banks of earth left over from when they were dug.

As you've probably learned from movies featuring castles, the medieval times when castles thrived were also violent times. There was no shortage of dangers to worry about. In fact, why do you think castles were built? Simple homes were too prone to plundering and pillaging. Castles, on the other hand, offered safety in the form of strong walls and fortifications.

As a form of defense moats were quite effective. Castles without moats were vulnerable to attacks from below, since marauders often found the only way to take a castle's inhabitants by surprise was to tunnel underneath the castle and attack from below. Moats, however, made the process of tunneling under a castle nearly impossible.

When moats were filled with water, they were usually deep enough to make it difficult for attackers to wade across. In addition to being difficult to swim with weapons, attackers would be reluctant to try swimming across because they would be too vulnerable to attack from castle guards.

Homeowners can now embrace and invest in a Proactive Locked-N-Loaded Wild Fire Defense System to remove the threat of our wild fires in the West.
