Brooklyn Center Fire Chief Todd Berg throws a Stat-X First Responder® into the window of the city-owned home at 7015 Kyle Ave. N. during a live fire training. The portable condensed aerosol fire suppression tool helps to contain and suppress small fires in enclosed spaces. “Each one of our chiefs have this in their car,” Berg said. “What you do is, you throw it through the window, and it displaces the oxygen in one room, and it will keep the fire at bay in that one room until we can get in with the hose. We get to learn, we’re trying new things.”
Correction: Stat-X suppresses the fire by interrupting the chemical radicals in the fire, not by reducing the oxygen.
