    Default High winds and night time retardant application

    Our history has been years of hauling retardant to staging areas and supplying Hollywood with special effects fire control. These two systems shown here on You Tube have patented non clogging nozzles. We see them working populated canyons such as the recent Santa Barbara Fire and close neighborhoods like the Sayre Fire which were lost at night when the winds and darkness grounded aerial attack. We aim to be a valuable tool in the arsenol.

    Our 2 tractor trailer dry rigs carry 35 tons of pure retardant. The 3 4,000 gallon water trucks mix on the run and can distribute 220 feet.

    Harve is correct. I think you should ask the mod's to remove this or you could. Either way it is an Advertisement!

    Trucks NOT for sale. If you wanted one we would NOT sell it to you. We offer them at NO CHARGE (you pay for the retardant) to save homes in a wildfire situation. We make our money in motion picture stunts and special effects fire supression thank you. Just thought we would float a better idea out there. The patents are for sale however that is a different matter and not presented here. You fellows are firefighters not venture capitalists. Like we don't know that. Really.

    Good grief men, thought the idea was to save property and lives.
