Komodo Fire Systems is dedicated to promoting fire safety while protecting communities and natural ecosystems from the damaging effects of wildfires. That's why we are proud to support the recent introduction of the "Forest Protection and Wildland Firefighter Safety Act of 2023" by representatives Doug LaMalfa (R – CA) and Jimmy Panetta (D – CA).
This vital piece of legislation seeks to ensure that the Forest Service can continue to use fire retardants as a critical tool in the fight against wildfires. Fire retardants have been instrumental in controlling fires, saving countless homes, businesses, and natural resources. Check out the full press release here.
"Fire retardant is an essential tool in wildland firefighting, especially in the West. Not only is it absurd to try to take away that tool, it's flat-out dangerous. These regressive environmentalists are scared that a little bit of fire retardant could get into our rivers while we're fighting another million-acre fire. But they care nothing about the forests burning down, people and animals fleeing for their lives, and the land covered in ash. Pollution from even larger fires will not only harm fish, but the air pollution will choke vulnerable people up to hundreds of miles away," said Congressman LaMalfa.
Komodo Fire Systems is always dedicated to protecting communities and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfires. We will continue working tirelessly to provide the best possible fire safety solutions and advocate for preserving critical tools like fire retardants. Contact us today!
