Why Fire Departments Like Cold Fire

First Responder Safety Public Safety Environmental Safety

Cold Fire® is a unique fire suppressant product that should be available in all fire emergencies. Because Cold Fire® absorbs 10 times the BTUs of water and has 6 times the penetrating capability, it allows, for example, a fire fighter to enter and exit a structure much quicker, stay cooler, and to knock down the fire much faster while using 65% less water and no re-igniting. Another important feature, from a safety perspective, is the fact that Cold Fire® is also a thermal barrier product, i.e., it provides a barrier from heat such that it can be applied to skin, clothing, or other objects/surfaces and will prevent heat from penetrating the surface. As well as its unique ability to rapidly cool objects and remove heat from a fire.

Here are the main reasons why many departments are switching exclusively to Cold Fire: Cost Savings!

Cold Fire lives up to, if not exceeds, all that was advertised… I feel that Cold Fire will definitely improve our fire-fighting and reduce injuries to our members. This is a product that we will be using more and more in the future.”
