There is no guarantee that any product can be used after a fire. Each product will be subjected to various types of fires, so it is our recommendation to replace each product once it has actively (where fire passes through the product) been through a fire.
If you have been warned to evacuate or notice that a wildfire is near your neighborhood, it is the prime time to deploy any Fire Brake products. Be sure that you have sufficient time to pack your bags and follow your emergency plan before deploying any Fire Brake products.
If a fire is within sight or already on your property, do not attempt to deploy any product and instead evacuate immediately!
One person can certainly deploy the systems. For the products that are heavier, we can recommend a collapsible hand truck. To give you an idea of weight, our 26′ system weighs 33lbs.
Position the product as a potential last line of defense as close to the home as possible. Make sure that the product is placed in the direction the wind is blowing.
No additional fuels should be present between the home and the back edge of the skirt with the solid skirt section closest to the home.
