MFB Is Out To Teach Fighting Wildfires With Less Water And Less Toxic Run Off

Sonoma County braces for another year of drought

At a workshop this week, Sonoma County water managers highlighted what’s to come as the latest drought continues: disciplined conservation will be necessary, additional water use restrictions may be coming, Russian River curtailments will be back, farmers will continue to struggle and salmon and steelhead trout are at risk.

Mighty Fire Breaker's Wildfire Depot and Pro-Environment Market Place will open April 22nd in Rohnert Park (Sonoma County) to teach new, proven better ways to proactively fight wildfires using much less water.

The Pro-Environment Market Place will hold training seminars with demonstrations to teach Insurance Providers, GC Contractors, Homeowners, Wineries and anyone who is interested in reducing risk without harming the future of our environment.

Mighty Fire Breakers Founder is a National Award Winner in mold and early fire elimination whose programs have been used all around the USA by top National Builders to reduce risk of loss and reduce risk premiums. His vision for the Pro-Environment ™ Marketplace is to present vendors that produce products that are safe around humans and animals and defends the future of our environments just like Mighty Fire Breakers MFB-31-CitroTech Fire Inhibitor does.

We also need to teach firefighters how to mop up lost homes with less water in order to defend OUR drinking water. MFB has absorbents retention techniques with prove technology used to absorb oil spills that can now be used to absorb toxic water runoff.

Case in point: The extent of the latest crisis unfolding in Paradise is yet unknown: The deadly fire may also have contaminated up to 173 miles of pipeline in the town's water system with cancer-causing benzene and other volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Preliminary results have shown contamination in about a third of the lines tested, though only about 2 percent of the entire system has been sampled. please read

Wildfire retardants are generally considered safe for humans, though some argue that the risks are insufficiently understood. In addition, scientists began raising concerns decades ago about the toxicity of retardants for wildlife. Sometimes pilots accidentally release retardant over restricted areas like endangered species habitat and waterways in highly concentrated doses. Once it enters streams, ponds, and rivers, retardant — particularly in concentrated quantities — can spur harmful algae blooms, and potentially kill fish, amphibians, and other aquatic organisms.

It’s time we embrace safer proven science to defend our homes and communities from wildfires so we don’t find out later it kills our precious salmon and trout or ends up like the weed killer found to cause cancer.

Why doesn’t the Federal Government fund and expedite the testing to find new safer science chemistry for wildfire defense now? The Federal Government knows what they are dropping kills fish. On a recent call with an official, she admitted out of thousands of airplane applications a year, only 60 are dropped by accident near or in waterways.

Why do we have to wait so long for the Federal Gov to engaged us in Missoula testing is a serious concern. Our company that knows it can put fire out faster than what they are using since ours is all food grade with zero ammonia and phosphate.
