“Having a product that is USDA and UL approved, safe for the firefighter, safe for the environment and helps conserve water in a major way can only be beneficial to everyone when disaster strikes. We look forward to expanding this product across our region.”
FireRein is a clean company founded by firefighters in rural Ontario, Canada, who saw the need to improve the industry with a safe product for both the environment and those fighting fires.
What initially started as plans to build firefighting equipment quickly turned into something more when they found out some ‘green’ foams contain PFAS and many toxic chemicals that harm whole communities.
Determined to provide a truly safe solution, FireRein created Eco-Gel™. Eco-Gel™ is a certified 100% bio-based product that is easy to use and provides all the benefits firefighters are looking for in a water additive.
Eco-Gel™ is UL listed and effective for suppressing class A and class B fires. The product uses less water extinguishing fires faster – all well-being environmentally benign.
