Every day, hundreds of thousands of first responders put their lives on the line in the call of duty. So we asked ourselves... “what if there was a more effective, safer way to fight fires and can we help our first responders by providing them with better tools?” The answer for us was yes... and so we worked to create a highly disruptive, cutting edge Water Enhancement Technology called STRONG WATER™.
STRONG WATER™ is a 100% non toxic, biodegradable, on-demand liquid solution that seamlessly integrates with existing equipment, aircraft and trucks. Our product performs exponentially better than the outdated, marginally effective, toxic flame retardants currently in use. STRONG WATER™ enables firefighters to be much more effective at fighting fire, with less exposure to harm and zero exposure to toxic chemicals.
Fire suppression, delivered direct to a fire front, is more effective than any form of indirect attack.
STRONG WATER technology when deployed in a rapid response, from Helicopters, flying low and slow, applying water mixed with SWt, in a highly targeted approach, directly on the fire, KNOCKS WILDFIRE OUT.
A rapid deployment of SWt from ROTARY WING AIRCRAFT, is a more effective tactic due to the helicopters ability to fly in complex terrain, most weather conditions, and in close proximity to fire – and SWt’s ability to extend the value of plain water by 8-10x via adhesion and suppression performance advantages.
Deploying from lower speeds and lower altitude with higher accuracy allows for pilots to avoid watersheds and other vulnerable ecosystems.
The Troubling Reality
About Class A Foams
They're ineffective. They're unhealthy for firefighters. They're expensive. And they're damaging to the environment.
Problem with Long Term
Toxic, outdated & ineffective especially in the face of the mega-wildfires that are currently ravaging the planet. Are harmful to waterways and aquatic life.
Class B Foams
Contains carcinogenic PFAS chemicals that are harmful to humans. Cannot be used in exposure protection.
A record amount of antiquated long term retardant has been dumped on wildfires around the world, in the last few fire seasons alone, with little effect on stopping the fires. Despite the harmful increase in use of this toxic product the devastation continues.
The current tactic of deploying OUTDATED toxic long-term retardants, in indirect attack, well ahead of fire, from large cumbersome and costly fixed wing aircraft, is failing.
KEEPS YOU SAFE, by eliminating flashover, rekindle and fall risk. It is not toxic to firefighters, unlike most fireground chemicals. STRONG WATER™ technology reduces structural collapse and the risk of steam burn by limiting the amount of water and associated weight load of water.
DOES THE JOB FASTER, by extending the value of water and reducing run-time, and by reducing direct exposure time.
SAVES YOU MONEY, thanks to a huge increase in efficiency, less water hauling, fewer injuries and less apparatus run-time.
PROTECTS THE ENVIRONMENT, by conserving water use, thereby limiting runoff, lowering toxic emissions, eliminating toxic chemical additions and reducing direct fire damage.
PROTECTS YOUR AIRCRAFT & EQUIPMENT, with a non-corrosive, easy-to-clean formula that won't rust your trucks.
WRAPS AND CLINGS TO VEGETATION, significantly reducing the chance of rekindle in wildland application.
HOLDS UP BETTER AGAINST HEAT when deployed from aircraft on to a wildfire. Mitigating evaporation and increasing suppression rates.
NON-TOXIC AND BIODEGRADABLE. Does not kill fish or adversely affect waterways.
