Fire Fence About Us
Our Story

We were evacuated from our home in the summer of 2010, and felt helpless as we watched slurry bombers (planes dropping fire retardant) fly over our mountain neighborhood.  Luckily, our house was saved by the tireless efforts of fire fighters.

The following year, we were diligent in fire mitigation efforts – gathering neighbors to cut down trees, moving brush from around the house, mowing the tall grass on our property, and spraying for beetles to keep trees healthy.
We watched in terror as other communities faced raging fires in 2012.  We provided goodies for the mountain fire department bake sale, bought a fire proof safe, and stored valuables at a friend’s house in town.  One lightning storm produced half a dozen small fires in our neighborhood.  'There has to be something more to do', we thought, and Fire Fence fire retardant was born. Fire Fence is essentially slurry for residential use, applied with a hand sprayer by property owners.  Fire Fenceis part of a comprehensive fire mitigation plan to help protect what you value most.
