Wildland Fires and the Impacts on GHG Emissions

  • Fire Suppression Products and PFAS problem
  • Eco-Gel™ is the only firefighting water additive certified by UL and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to be 100% bio-based.
  • Impacts on the environment and GHG emissions
  • Environmental Leadership

FireRein is dedicated to providing the firefighting community with effective, innovative and sustainable firefighting solutions. The company is underpinned by our experienced team that includes firefighters from various backgrounds in urban, rural, industrial and wildland firefighting. We are further driven by a need to replace today’s toxic, non-renewable, firefighting water additives whose myriad of human and environmental toxicity concerns are under ever-increasing public scrutiny.

FireRein also recognizes that today’s fires are challenging traditional firefighting methods. Climate change has created “super wildfires” that are occurring more frequently. Structural firefighting has dramatically changed with the mainstream use of today’s engineered building materials that cause fires to burn hotter and faster.
