Tribute To Ben Franklin Blog

Founder of the First Organized Fire Department


Mighty Fire Breaker™ products and practices are designed to protect
human health and our environment.

It was Ben Franklin who coined the expression, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure".
The man who helped found the United States of America in 1776 also founded the Union Fire Company, America’s first organized fire department. Mighty Fire Breaker promotes a proactive approach to fire defense, promoting sensible risk reduction products and practices that can be taken before a fire threatens.

We at Mighty Fire Breaker believe that property loss—either from blowing wildfire embers or wood framed building fires—can be reduced and the environment protected. We offer a safe and eco-friendly chemistry that interrupts fire’s ability to survive and advance. In the spirit of Ben Franklin's pioneering work in fire prevention and safety, we are advocating for safer and better practices in wildfire defense and the U.S. building industry. We believe our fire inhibitor chemistry and equipment will help fire departments shut down all types of fires faster—to protect not only property and human life but the environment, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants caused by fire.
