 Wildfire in the forest Every year, wildfires burn across the U.S. and more and more people are living where wildfires are a real risk. Last year, a total of 4,312 structures were destroyed by wildfires, including more than 3,000 homes and more than 70 commercial buildings.

Rooftop Sprinkler Embers-Guard™ System

A rooftop sprinkler system Ember-S-Guard is adapted to protect homes from falling embers in the case of a wildfire or bushfire. It is also foreseeable that an owner can use the Embers Sprinkler System to wet the rooftop of houses on a hot day to cool down the house, for general irrigation purposes, or wet summer fun.


Ensure your building's safety with a roof-top EMBERS sprinkler system

To date in 2017, the U.S. has seen more than 56,000 wildfires burn more than 9 million acres of land, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. States currently reporting large fires include Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania. Seasonal Santa Ana winds are currently being blamed for fueling wildfires burning across Ventura County and Sylmar in Southern California, forcing thousands to evacuate. NFPA provides a number of resources to help residents prepare before a wildfire threatens. Additional information can also help neighborhoods plan for an evacuation and what to do once you return home.

Be protected. Be safe!

In a wildfire event, most structures are lost due to ignition by flying embers. The elevation and the wildfire driven by winds without a fire break such as a huge field, creates immense danger to the area under wildfire attack. Due to these factors, any initiation of wildfire in the community would be caused by flying embers rather than direct flame spread.Wind-blown embers, which can travel one mile or more, are the biggest threat to homes. In all reports most homes are burned as a result of wind blown embers.

Roof Condition: Homeowners should always have a Class A-rated, fire-resistant roof cover or assembly. Once a falling ember burns out the firebrand should not burn through to the roof deck and flames and spread to other parts of the roof. Without a fire-resistant roof, the protecting of your home will fall short. Placing Embers-guard rooftop sprinkler system increases your chances to defend your home from flying embers.

Usually Unprotected pathways allow burning embers to get inside the house, including vents (soffits, attics, crawl spaces or wall vents) or broken, single-pane windows exposed to wildfire conditions  Any wood structure connected to the house or close to the house, if combustible, will support flames or glowing embers to reach the roof and start a fire. By wetting the wood structures you will have a better chance to save your home. Homeowner should always view their property from all angles. Homes are burned in a wildfire due to numerous factors; homeowners must consider and establish a systematic defense and preparedness approach.

Mendocino Complex now largest wildfire in California history

The Mendocino Complex Fire was the largest recorded fire complex in California history. It was a large complex of two wildfires, the River Fire and Ranch Fire, which burned in Mendocino, Lake, Colusa, and Glenn Counties in the U.S. State of California, with the Ranch Fire being California's single-largest recorded wildfire. The Ranch Fire burned eight miles northeast of Ukiah, and the River Fire burned six miles north of Hopland, to the south of the larger Ranch Fire. First reported on July 27, 2018, both fires burned a combined total of 459,123 acres (1,858 km2), before they were collectively 100% contained on September 18; the Ranch Fire alone burned 410,203 acres (1,660 km2), surpassing the Thomas Fire to become the single-largest modern California wildfire. 

The Ranch Fire also surpassed the size of the 315,577-acre Rush Fire, which burned across California and Nevada, as well as the Santiago Canyon Fire of 1889, which was previously believed to have been California's all-time largest wildfire. The fires collectively destroyed 280 structures while damaging 37 others; causing at least $267 million (2018 USD) in damages, including $56 million in insured property damage and $201 million (2018 USD) in fire suppression costs. The city of Lakeport, communities of Kelseyville, Lucerne, Upper Lake, Nice, Saratoga Springs, Witter Springs, Potter Valley, and Finley, parts of Hopland, and the tribal communities of Hopland Rancheria and Big Valley Rancheria were evacuated.

The smaller River Fire was the first fire in the complex to be contained, reaching full containment on August 13, while the Ranch Fire continued to burn for more than a month after that, with flames on the northern flank of the Ranch Fire pushing eastward from the Snow Mountain Wilderness into Glenn County. The Ranch Fire finally reached full containment during the evening of September 18. However, the Ranch Fire continued to burn deep within containment lines until November 7, when the fire was declared to be inactive.

As of May 2019, insurance claims related to this fire season had reached 
$12 billion, most related to the Camp Fire in Butte County.

BE EMBER AWARE! Will your home be prepared when the embers arrive?

When wildfires rage, it's easy to imagine that homes are destroyed simply by being in the direct path of the blaze. However, many homes catch on fire because of small embers which can be blown ahead or around the fire for considerable distances. These embers may be small but they have the ability to set homes alight if they don't have adequate ember protection.
The simplest way to prevent an ember attack is to remove any items that may be vulnerable to being set alight by embers. This includes any debris in your gutters, and flammable fuel that’s been stored in the vicinity of your home and dead or dry fire fuel such as sticks, firewood or garden waste.

Embers have also been known to ignite homes by entering through small exterior openings such as gutters, under doors and air vents. These openings can be protected from ember attacks by covering them with wire mesh or installing ember guards that are now being manufactured.
If you'd like to install a rooftop sprinkler system on your home or you'd simply like an assessment of your home’s fire safety, then you are in a right place!!!
