A key determinant of whether a fire ignition turns into a large and costly fire is the size of the fire when fire suppression resources arrive. The more quickly fire suppression resources arrive at the fire ground (the initial attack delay) the smaller the fire will be at time of first attack response and the better the chances of the fire being contained.
All fires need to be extinguished as quickly as possible. Yet, detecting a bushfire can take up to 90 minutes following ignition.
Rather than relying on emergency calls and eyewitness accounts, Fireball’s FUEGO Intelligence system can detect fires automatically within minutes and evaluate their growth in real-time, allowing for rapid, effective fire suppression, and the protection of the environment, settlements, infrastructure, people and animals. Even small fires are automatically detected as early as one minute after ignition.
