Flameout Fire Extinguishing Foam to Revolutionize Consumer and Professional Fire Safety
Date:6/10/2013

Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) June 10, 2013

With the nightmare of Colorado’s historic wildfire season still etched indelibly in his consciousness, Boulder Fire Chief Larry Donner watched with a sense of disbelief and irony as one of his city colleagues plunged a bare hand into the embers of a demonstration burn experiment that had just been extinguished in a municipal parking lot.

Division Manager Mick Brekke was field-testing Flameout in front of a live audience of city and county staffers. He elicited kudos from the crowd by demonstrating Flameout’s ability to swiftly and effectively subdue a simulated brush fire. However, the essence of Brekke’s presentation rested on showcasing Flameout’s revolutionary capability for preventing a professional firefighter’s worst enemy – re-ignition.

“Re-ignition is the curse that can turn victory into certain defeat,” commented Chief Donner. “The battle against any fire can never be truly won so long as the threat of re-ignition persists.”

Flameout is a “new age” fire suppression product specifically engineered to chemically neutralize the fuel source to the extent that, even when using a blow torch, embers from an extinguished blaze cannot re-ignite.

“Dry chemical technology never conquered the re-ignition nemesis,” says Brekke. He issued the challenge to his group of spectators for some brave volunteer to “validate” his product’s efficacy by physically “bare handing” the embers of what just minutes ago, had been a conflagration of dried brush. Brekke broke the ice himself, wrapping his bare fingers around the smoldering rubble of a charred pine branch. Having previously researched Flameout’s lab tests and disclosures, Boulder’s Open Space & Mountain Parks Director Mike Patton worked up enough courage to follow Brekke’s lead, grabbing some of the burnt debris.

“Although reasonably confident about Flameout’s claims, I had my reflex instinct for heat read
