AF31-W: Revolutionary Wildfire Technology
In 2020 alone, wildfires burned over 10 million acres, caused 3,500 civilian fire deaths, and 15,200 civilians were reported with fire injuries. Property damage was estimated at $21.9 billion. As climate change and other factors contribute to an increased frequency of wildfire, it is imperative that we are equipped with the best solutions available.
In the last decade we have seen the amount of aerial fire retardant used on National Forest System Lands drastically increase. According to the National Interagency Fire Center, the federal government and state agencies dropped over 56 million gallons of fire retardant in 2020 alone. What is more troubling, is that very little technological advancement has been made in the last 60 years in regards to the solutions being used to extinguish these fires.
The retardants currently being used in the United States are mostly salt based, meaning they work by preserving the wetness of the vegetation. However, once dry, the fire-resistant properties lose all effectiveness.
AF31-W is a proprietary solution that attacks the essential elements of a fire and prevents ignition. It is a water-based solution made from food based materials. AF31-W is non-toxic, having no environmental impact and does not contain any ammonia, urea, gums, gels, or known carcinogens. AF31-W is certified by Greenguard Gold, which establishes the highest standard of safety and health. Also, results from 3rd party Aquatic testing confirms that AF31-W is non-toxic for fish and other aquatic organisms.
With over 20 years of wildfire application in several countries around the world, AF31-W is a proven technological advancement in fighting fire. This revolutionary product equips firefighters with the best possible solution for any emergency situation. AF31-W helps ensure the safety of our firefighters and civilians alike.
