How do First Line Defense systems work?

First Line Defense wildfire protection systems use your pool, pond or [other significant water source] to deliver between [x - y gpm : a large volume] of water to your property by way of powerful pumps which feed high-flow, strategically positioned sprinklers which saturate, hydrate and raise the overall humidity around the structures and foliage throughout the defensible space surrounding your property, as wildfires approach.

Our systems comparably deliver up to to [X”] of rainfall per hour within the coverage area of your system. Additional 1.5” attack lines allow you to manually hydrate hard to reach areas, parts of your property of particular importance, or even put out Spot Fires or stray embers which can be blown onto your property from [many] miles away from the burn zone during an active wildfire.

In fact, many structure fires occur far from the direct flames of a wildfire itself. One of the greatest and most preventable causes of structural fires caused by wildfire outside of the flames themselves are caused by Firebrands.

Spot fire ignition of a wildland fire by firebrands (flaming or glowing embers) is an important fire ignition pathway by which wildfires are started and may propagate. Once a wildfire has been ignited and grows, it can spread rapidly through ember spotting, where by pieces of burning material (e.g. branches, bark, building materials, etc.) are lofted by the plume of the fire and then transported forward by the wind landing where they can start spot fires far downwind.

​While no system on its own can guarantee complete protection of your property, especially if it falls directly in the path of an uncontained wildfire, First Line Defense wildfire system will give your property the best chances of survival by creating a defensible ring of deep hydration and increased humidity around your property.
