Aerial & Ground Ignition

Prescribed burning has always been considered one of the best tools used in wildfire management, as by introducing fire in a controlled manner, the build-up of dead debris and insect and disease infestations can be diminished.  In addition, controlled burns also releases important nutrients back into the forest floor, improving the wildlife habitat.

Controlled fire is used as a fire suppression tool to prevent fire from spreading by removing the fuels in advance - commonly referred to as "backfiring" or "back-burning".

To assist with these applications, Type One Incident Support represents several tools for the job, including the Dragon Division products and the PyroShot Series, hand launchers for ground ignition.  Please see here for more information.
