Fire Buyer Live is the event for International Fire Buyer Magazine, the leading and must-attend online event for both the passive and active sectors. With the rapid evolution of technologies, and the constant shift of policy and challenging requirements of users, it is now more important than ever to stay abreast of the issues that affect you.
With this in mind, Melissa will be delving deeper into “Chemically Speaking: Why USFS, Fire Management Agencies Rely on Phosphate-Based Fire Retardants”. In 1963, phosphate-based fire retardant became the first to be approved by the United States Forest Service for use in aerial wildfire attack. Over the next 60 years, phosphates have proven to be effective in helping the USFS and other fire management agencies around the world to protect property and save lives.
Kim will discuss current fire retardant technology and take a look into the future to educate attendees on how we can improve all aspects of wildland firefighting, helping the audience to understand what we need to do to ensure future success with wildfire prevention, protection and suppression efforts, as climate change and other factors continue to intensify the dangers presented by wildfires.
