You and your family’s life is most important— evacuate as soon as you’re told to.
What is a Fire Retardant Gel?
A gel applied to a home to prevent wildfire from burning/damaging a structure.
Time Is Against You
Fire retardant gels dehydrate, sometimes quickly. They can lose their effectiveness after only a few hours.
Gels Can Become a Fire Hazard
When completely dehydrated, some gels may create a hazardous condition more susceptible to burning than untreated plywood.
Applying gels can be cumbersome. It can consume precious time you and your family need to evacuate safely.
Leave It To Professionals
Gels can be effective if applied by firefighters a short period of time before the fire reaches your home.
