Stat-X First Responder
Stat-X First Responder is an emergency fire suppression tool (FST) to add to your arsenal of tools you will want on hand to determine the best attack on the fire. Stat-X First Responder excels at containing and suppressing small fires in an enclosed space before it becomes unmanageable and requires a fire department with water. The use of water increases the damages, downtime, and the cost of recovery.
Many times the fire chief, police, or ambulance will arrive at the fire scene prior to the fire department truck or engine.
- First responder 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 until additional resources arrive for rescue and for firefighters to lay hose.
- 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.
- 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.
Further, the First Responder can be particularly beneficial for energy and utility employees. If a fire occurs in an underground vault, the Stat-X First Responder can be tossed down into the vault through the manhole opening. This is far and away a safer option than entering the highly dangerous, burning, underground environment to directly attack the fire with a hand portable fire extinguisher.
