Our History

Founded in 2003 as Firebreak Spray Systems, the company originated the business of protecting homes with a phosphate-based, long-term retardant. The company provided fire protection services to thousands of high-value homes to a major insurance provider in the West, including the home pictured here saved from the 2007 Witch Fire near San Diego, California. 

As Wildfire Alliance, we are building on the knowledge gained during those years to develop retardants that are far friendlier to people, pets and wildlife as well as enhancing our products with non-toxic supplements that accelerate composting of dead leaves and other potential wildfire fuels as well as accelerate the healthy regrowth of plants following a fire.

Defense Against Wildfires

How do homes and other structures catch on fire? Wind-blown embers from wildfires rarely burn them by landing on roofs – they ignite dry vegetation immediately adjacent to the walls of the structure, and flames burn into the eaves above and through vents into the structure. The wildland areas around vineyards, under and near utility power lines, and adjacent to agricultural operations are similarly challenged.

Traditional fire-safe practices recommend clearing all flammable material within five feet of a home, as recommended in the illustration to the left by Firewise USA® from the National Fire Protection Association. Applying a long-term fire retardant provides a way for you to maintain more of your preferred vegetation while keeping your home safe from flying embers. A similar strategy can be deployed around commercial operations to provide a crucial firebreak to stop an advancing wildfire.

How do fire retardants work?

This images to the right show our proprietary retardant, Certified Advanced Firebreak™, at work. The area in the center has been treated with CAF and allowed to dry. The fire easily ignites the untreated area but stops when it reaches the treated material and goes out. Imagine this was the landscaping immediately surrounding your home. An ember-driven fire wouldn't be able reach the plants next to your home, keeping the fire from entering it.

What is compost acceleration?

In addition to stopping the spread of fire with our retardant, we are able to accelerate the normal decomposition of dead matter that traditionally provides a highly volatile source of fuel for an ember-driven wildfire by adding a non-toxic blend of organic material. In this photo, oak leaves on the left are left untreated, while the ones on the right show significant change only ten days after application.

Interested in testing?

Wildfire Alliance is in the process of testing the efficacy of its products with national laboratories, federal agencies and other qualified institutions. Early testing is also being done by disaster response teams and other service providers considering adding our products to their firefighting arsenals.

Numerous factors together determine a home’s survivability in a wildfire, including building design and materials, proximity to other homes, fire intensity and ember cast, topography, and other factors. Maintaining proper defensible space, including the application of a long-term fire retardant, will improve your home’s survivability and increase the willingness of firefighters to defend your home, but it cannot guarantee your home’s survival in the event of a wildfire. Wildfire Alliance makes no representations or warranties regarding your home’s survival in the event of a wildfire and disclaims any liability for losses caused by wildfire.
