Over 120 million people live in 220 million acres of high-risk Wildland-Urban Interface area. With a near record breaking year for acres burned in the United Stated in 2017, the threat of wildfire to populated areas has increased since 1990.
To combat the threat, the USDA Forest Service and nation’s wildland firefighters have successfully used Phos-Check fire retardant to protect lives, property and resources from the damaging effects of wildfire for over 50 years. And now, Phos-Chek is finally available for home defense – without the red color! Applied months in advance or hours before a wildfire reaches you home, Phos-Chek Home Defense can significantly increase the chance of your home surviving a wildfire, especially when used in combination with other principles of defensible space as recommended by your local fire officials.
