As a result of the broadcasted warnings, claiming that this fire season could be one of the worst ever, and with the frequency of wildfires on the rise, resulting in the countless number of homes being lost, the Company sees great potential in offering homeowners the ability to self-apply a defense around their property prior to forced evacuation. Fire Break offers homeowners piece-of-mind that they can take extra steps to save their home without having to rely solely on emergency response personnel, or endangering themselves staying behind in defense with a garden hose. If you live in a wildfire prone area, Fire Break is an economical investment you can afford, preparing your home and family for the next wildfire emergency. Eco has hired former Marine Firefighters in support of this product launch, offering consumers this last line of fire defense.
"Fire Break has been developed leveraging our FRC technology providing an Eco-Friendly fire inhibitor for use in many applications. The Eco Fire Break product launch is our first of many products to be launched, offering homeowners the ability to spray a line of defense around their property prior to evacuation. There is never a guarantee against these radical fire storms, but at least you now have the ability to spray your home and landscaping in hope the fire storm passes by your home," stated Steve Conboy, President and CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc. "We will continue to market the Fire Break product through many distribution channels including the potential of infomercials and big box retailers" added Conboy.
