Three American Applied Science Innovations if implemented before not wild fire season
will save thousands of homes from loss
If we deal with these 3 items we will radically lower our loss during wild fires.
Problem 1 Has A Solution
Power Companies are being sued because we are not proactive to defend these old dry wooden poles that have no fire treatment in the wood. The solution is affordable and available in California now. By next wild fire season thousands of vulnerable poles could be wrapped with a two piece fire defended metal pole armor. Wouldn’t it be better to defend thousands of poles instead of suing these power companies.
Problem 2 Has A Solution
We lose thousands of houses every year because of no fire defense and a major ember design flaw. The western region has over grown dry ground fuels outside on the hills around homes with ember design flaws. These hot desert winds have been blowing west since dinosaurs roamed the earth only now we block them with thousands of homes with no fire protection. These hot winds blow hot micro embers right into soffits with rat screen ventilation that allows easy entrance into hot dry combustible attics to implode homes faster than firefighters could ever try to defend. When the fire start in attics they consume homes very fast and that creates radical energy inside the walls of our vulnerable communities to consume them all. We could lower loss by thousands if we retro fit all the rat screen ventilation with a tight metal screen to bounce embers instead of letting them right in. Roof turbine vents have to be concealed during wild fires just like we close windows in rain.
Problem 3 Has A Solution
We still have thousands of vulnerable homes in communities all around California with dry fuel growing right up to the bordering homes. When we watch those grown fuels bring those fast moving ground fire and embers right up and into the soffit vents. When we see the fires move threw and consume our un-protected homes so fast without even burning the trees we need to understand trees have fire protection it’s our homes that have none. If we retro fit our attic ventilation we still need defend the dry ground fuels to keep that fire out of our communities and those bordering homes the fire is trying to consume. The solution is now available it’s blended in LA and it safer than the red fire retardants that are being dropped from planes. This new proactive fire inhibitor plan allows it to be sprayed with ground vehicles days before the wild fire gets to the community border. Last summer the Thousand Oaks fire was ragging for days before it crossed the 101 FWY and down into the canyons and under homes in Malibu. The new proactive solutions sprays the dry fuel ground covers a day or week before a fire threatens homes and when the fire hits the dry fuels sprayed with the clean fire inhibitor it’s stops it dead in it tracks. This new proactive chemistry is nothing like to Red fire retardants we see getting dropped on homes this fire inhibitor has no clean up and no odor. This clean fire inhibitor is UL GreenGuard Gold certified and listed to be safe around children and schools.
This could be what the President considers poor forest management
Adding more young firefighters with shovels and rakes is not going to help support a poor WFD plan
All western region rat screen vents have a design flaw that allows hot micro embers into combustible spaces.
