Respond to Small Fires While Easy to Contain
When placed at regular intervals, FIREBird devices provide continuous wildfire detection along rights-of-way or easements like those associated with electric utility lines and roadways, or for wildfires that start near wildland-urban interfaces where neighborhoods adjoin fuel-rich wildlands.
The unique risks associated with rights-of-way and wildland–urban interfaces call for defensive fire detection methods that can sense fires almost immediately after ignition. Such detection maximizes the available response time ensuring firefighting resources arrive to the smallest possible fire and helping to prevent massive devastation.
Optimized to Quickly Detect Small Wildfires
The FIREBird system is specifically designed to detect very small (3’x3’) fires across a discrete area. When regularly placed along critical boundaries, the system provides continuous fire detection along that path. The FIREBird system is ideal for any arbitrary property border.
Small fire detection is provided over the contiguous 17-acre area surrounding a FIREBird device. Larger fires can be detected out to 1/2 mile or more, depending upon terrain. Uniform protection across larger land areas is as simple as deploying additional FIREBird devices.
FIREBird devices are also capable of detecting and reporting on multiple, simultaneous fires within their zone of coverage.
