Acorn Newspaper Story About Micro Droplet Systems
Micro Droplet Systems appreciates the Acorn newspaper and reporter Melissa Simon for covering our New High Pressure Fire Suppression Technology. Our Water Atomizing Suppression Pump (WASP) and Stinger Nozzle is the future for ranchers, farmers, businesses, fire departments, and homeowners. The Acorn does a great job with covering local community stories to keep us all informed.
When people see our product and its capabilities with suppressing fire with very little water, the first question they asked is, “what’s in the water?” We explain to them that it’s just water. This is a question we all asked while researching and studying other countries using similar high pressure fire suppression systems. Like most people, you have to see it to believe it. This is why we like to perform small controlled fire extinguishing demonstrations and let the user put out the fire. It’s a lot easier to use and more effective than a dry chemical extinguisher.
Reaching out to Ranchers, Farmers, and Homeowners who live in the Wildfire Urban Interface (WUI), is a passion we embrace to help them protect their assets if an accidental vegetation fire is started from equipment used to reduce vegetation around their assets. As Martin Montano mention in the article, if the WASP was with them, they would have had a better chance to put out the fire. Every year, weed eater tools are used to clear vegetation and unfortunately, these tools have a history of starting vegetation fires. We coach and train all employees how to use the WASP and explain the importance with having a spotter or lookout person watch the person cutting the vegetation. If a spark starts a fire, the Spotter/lookout is trained to use the WASP to put out the fire.
The WASP is also used to protect your assets from on oncoming wildfire. When hot ember fallout is falling on your property, you have the WASP that only uses 10 gallons a minute. Remember, most fires require very little water application. Micro Droplets means more water surface area puts fires out with less water. No water wasted!
Stay Fire Safe.
