Emergency Responders Fire Suppression

Stat-X First Responder®

The Stat-X First Responder® is truly a new innovation in fire suppression technology. There is no other like it on the market today. It will not replace anything you are currently using, but it could be a wonderful addition to your arsenal of tools.

The Stat-X compound is the most effective fire extinguishing agent currently available. It is many times more effective than conventional agents by mass. The Stat-X First Responder contains the same compound used in our ULC listed fixed fire extinguishing units. The Stat-X First Responder works by interrupting the chain reaction of the fire. Potassium radicals are the main active component of the Stat-X aerosol. These Potassium radicals react with the free radicals of the flame, which results in suppression. Stat-X does not deplete the oxygen level nor does it deplete the ozone layer or contribute to global warming!

When would Stat-X First Responder be used?

Fire Fighter

Scenario A

Firefighter arrives at the scene of an early stage fire. After evacuating people and before additional resources arrive at the scene, toss a Stat-X First Responder into the rooms which are involved with the fire. This will buy time for further rescue and for firefighters to lay hose.

Scenario B

Firefighters are concerned about potential flashover from a fire down a hall and water isn't available yet. Toss a Stat-X First Responder ahead of the firefighters to eliminate many of the contributing factors of a flashover.

Scenario C

A firefighter is trapped or can't get to a victim due to an intense area of fire. Toss a Stat-X First Responder into the flame area for immediate fire suppression.

Police

Scenario A

Police arrive at a vehicle fire as a result of an accident. There are occupants trapped in the burning vehicle and the fire department has not yet arrived. Break a window, toss the Stat-X First Responder into the vehicle to knock down the fire and remove the occupants.

Scenario B

SWAT arrives on site and must deploy "flash bangers" into an area to stun criminals. These flash bangers often ignite combustibles. Toss a Stat-X First Responder into the flame area for immediate fire suppression for entry or to suppress fire while awaiting the arrival of the fire department.

Scenario C

Police arrive on the site of a structure (house) fire, in advance of the fire department. Occupants can be seen or heard in the fire area. Deploy the Stat-X First Responder to possibly attempt rescue or at least suppress and hold the fire in check until the fire department arrives.
