"Good Morning America" to demonstrate "Fire Barricade" product-July 9th
I have no financial interest in, nor do I endorse this product. This is posted as an FYI for those who may want to view the demo.
I received the following info from the show's segment producer...here's the plan:
Ron Hazelton and Lt. John Bartlett (inventor) from the Palm Beach Fire Dept will demonstrate a product called Fire Barricade. This is a gel that is applied to homes to prevent the structures from burning. The primary use is for homes that are susceptible to wild fires.
Demo: Two identical doghouses are placed side by side with about a foot or so space between them. One is coated with the Barricade gel using the home applicator system that operates with a standard garden hose. The other house is not coated but we may spray it down with water just before we light the flame to represent a homeowner spraying his house before a wildfire strikes. (It will still burn quite easily.)
We apply the flame to both houses simultaneously and one burns up and the gel coated one is completely undamaged. We then rinse the gel off using the same garden hose to show its ease of clean-up.
We will also demonstrate the fire resistive nature of disposable diapers using a hand-held propane torch (which led to the discovery of this product).
We will have the Fairfield CT Fire Dept. standing by to assist.
The show airs from 7-9 AM. Sorry for the late notice....:cool:

I wonder of our very own Leroy140 (yes, that Leroy!) got to be seen on network television?
