The First Responder is a new and innovative tool designed to aid in the suppression of fires and for use as a personal protection device for fire fighters in emergency egress or entrance situations. It is physically and functionally similar to a smoke grenade – with the major difference that it delivers a highly effective aerosol fire suppression agent – Stat-X.
- Offers significant fire "knockdown" and rapid suppression capabilities for enclosed spaces
- Environmentally friendly – No ozone depletion potential – No global warming potential
- Favorably reviewed by EPA for SNAP listing
- Safe for fire fighters and any occupants trapped by fire
No oxygen depletion – suppresses at very low concentrations by interference with free radicals
- Provides a reliable, cost effective fire protection tool for a wide range of fire scenarios
- Small, compact, and easily portable to point of attack
Partial List of First Responder Applications:
|Rapid Intervention Teams||Electrical Vaults|
|Meth Lab Fires||Below Grade Fires|
|Delay Flashovers||Rapid Temperature Drop|
|High Rise Building Fires||Shipboard Fires|
|Bilge Fires||Vehicle Fires|
|Attic Fires||Personal Protection|
Typical application scenarios include:
Scenario A—Firefighter arrives at the scene of an early stage fire. After assisting in getting people out and before additional resources arrive at the scene, toss Stat-X First Responders into the rooms which are involved with the fire. This will buy time for further rescue and for the firefighters to lay hose.
Scenario B—Firefighters are concerned about potential flashover from a fire down a hall and water isn’t yet available. The firefighters toss First Responders ahead as they advance to eliminate many of the contributing factors of a flashover.
Scenario C— A firefighter is trapped or can’t get to a victim due to an intense area of fire. Toss a First Responder into the flame area for immediate fire suppression. The First Responder creates a “bridge” of protection for both victim and fire fighter.
Coverage will be dependent on the specific characteristics of the situation encountered – class of fire, level of involvement, areas of potential leakage, etc. Tests have shown significant suppression effects up to an 8 ft high 10ft x 10ft room – around 20 cubic meters. More units would be required for a larger volume or spaces with excessive leakage. The aerosol flows and spreads rapidly throughout the volume – in a manner similar to a gas. However, since the aerosol is buoyant, more may be required in a high ceiling situation. The First Responder is most effective when thrown directly at or near the fire.
Container. The unit housing shall be constructed of metal and incorporate insulating/cooling material. Discharge ports for agent release shall be located around the circumference of the housing. Housing shall accept a M228 initiator and shall be non-pressurized prior to system activation.
Initiator. The initiator shall comply with MIL specification DTL9235210 (modified for output charge) and shall be subject to 100% reliability testing by means of X-Ray.
Safety. Units shall incorporate dual safety devices – a crimped safety pin and safety clip requiring removal prior to pulling the safety pin by means of a ring attachment. The initiator shall incorporate a minimum 4 second delay timer prior to activation.
Aerosol Agent. Aerosol generated shall be potassium based and manufacturer shall provide fifteen (15) minute time weighted average data from an independent United States laboratory demonstrating that the aerosol does not produce (at normal design concentrations) harmful levels of CO, CO2, and NOx based on NIOSH standards. Agent shall have no ozone depletion potential and no global warming potential. Agent shall be approved for commercial sale by the US EPA.
Dimensions. Unit shall contain 500 grams of aerosol forming composition and shall be 5.625 inches tall (6.875 including initiator mechanism) with a diameter of 3.188 inches. Total unit weight shall be < 2.7 lbs. Origin. Units shall be manufactured in the U.S.A.
