First Response is the latest development of a budget conscious Class A foam concentrate that compares favorably to the performance of other economy foams such as Chemguard’s Class A foam products and Ansul Silv-ex Plus. First Response is manufactured by the makers of the well-known Phos-Chek brand fire suppression products. First Response is formulated to make water more effective for firefighting. The unique combination of surfactants significantly reduces water’s surface tension and, when mixed with air, creates a foam blanket that surrounds fuels with a thick layer of water. This creates a barrier between the fuel and the fire, knocking down the fire faster than water alone, and allows fire fighters to see the areas of application. Making the water more effective reduces the amount of water needed to extinguish the fire reducing water damage and increases fire fighter safety through quicker knockdown and reduced mop-up/overhaul requirements. First Response contains NO HAZARDOUS MATERIALS, is non corrosive, non-toxic, readily biodegradable, and has no flash point. It does not contain any fluorinated surfactants such as PFOS/PFOA, which are found only in Class B foams.

Aerial and ground applied chemical retardant for control and management of wildland fires. Fully qualified by the USDA Forest ServiceExplore
Fire suppressant gel is thickened water typcially used to coat a structure to protect it from impinging fire. Gel wraps a “blanket of water” around any structure, keeping it cool and preventing ignition from nearby fires.Explore
Custom built Phos-Chek mixing equipment provides easy mixing for support of airtanker and helicopter operations. The unique PC-CODE unit allows for retardant, foam or gel mixing and spraying in a single unit with the flip of a switch.Explore
Portable retardant bases can be set up near the fire ground to support close in, quick turnaround operations for all types of aerial delivery systems. Ground units can place retardant accurately, 24 hours a day, in almost all weather conditions.Explore
Prescribed burning and burnout operations require thickened fuel for drip and heli torches. Flash 21 is a two part liquid that instantly and perfectly gels fuel for torch operations.Explore
