The Stat-X First Responder® is truly a new innovation in fire suppression technology. There is no other like it on the market today. It will not replace anything you are currently using, but it could be a wonderful addition to your arsenal of tools.
The Stat-X compound is the most effective fire extinguishing agent currently available. It is many times more effective than conventional agents by mass. The Stat-X First Responder contains the same compound used in our ULC listed fixed fire extinguishing units. The Stat-X First Responder works by interrupting the chain reaction of the fire. Potassium radicals are the main active component of the Stat-X aerosol. These Potassium radicals react with the free radicals of the flame, which results in suppression. Stat-X does not deplete the oxygen level nor does it deplete the ozone layer or contribute to global warming!
Firefighter arrives at the scene of an early stage fire. After evacuating people and before additional resources arrive at the scene, toss a Stat-X First Responder into the rooms which are involved with the fire. This will buy time for further rescue and for firefighters to lay hose.
Firefighters are concerned about potential flashover from a fire down a hall and water isn’t available yet. Toss a Stat-X First Responder ahead of the firefighters to eliminate many of the contributing factors of a flashover.
A firefighter is trapped or can’t get to a victim due to an intense area of fire. Toss a Stat-X First Responder into the flame area for immediate fire suppression.
Police arrive at a vehicle fire as a result of an accident. There are occupants trapped in the burning vehicle and the fire department has not yet arrived. Break a window, toss the Stat-X First Responder into the vehicle to knock down the fire and remove the occupants.
SWAT arrives on site and must deploy “flash bangers” into an area to stun criminals. These flash bangers often ignite combustibles. Toss a Stat-X First Responder into the flame area for immediate fire suppression for entry or to suppress fire while awaiting the arrival of the fire department.
Police arrive on the site of a structure (house) fire, in advance of the fire department. Occupants can be seen or heard in the fire area. Deploy the Stat-X First Responder to possibly attempt rescue or at least suppress and hold the fire in check until the fire department arrives.
Fire in bedroom
“The Lower St Croix Valley Fire Department (Lakeland, Minnesota) was fortunate to have discovered the Stat-X First Responder® at a recent trade show and after some discussion purchased a set to carry in our first response duty vehicle. At a recent room and contents fire, the device was deployed and successfully suppressed the fire until first responding fire personnel were able to extinguish by traditional means. The Stat-X First Responder successfully slowed that fire down and turned a rural bedroom fire that would have taken 100’s of personnel hours into a one-hour event. It not only saved money in the way of personnel and potential property loss, but also created a much safer work environment for our department.
The Stat-X First Responder turned a non-firefighting vehicle (Chevy Tahoe duty vehicle) into a vehicle capable of actually doing something pulling up to a fire prior to hose lines being deployed by engine companies. The Stat-X First Responder has become another valuable tool in our tool box!”

Two incidents where the Stat-X First Responder was used by the Fire Department of the Township of Tay, Ontario
“They had two fires in which the Stat-X First Responder product was used.
The first one was an auto body shop reporting a fire and the fire department arrived on scene, the tow truck inside the shop was on fire. They quickly closed all the doors in the building and isolated the fire which was under the tow truck. A Stat-X First Responder was deployed which knocked down the fire and allowed the fire department to finish putting out the fire. The Fire Chief, Brian Thomas, credits the use of a Stat-X First Responder with containing the fire and minimizing the fire damage.
The second deployment involved a house fire and the Deputy Chief was first on scene. The fire was in a two story house and two people were trapped upstairs. He quickly deployed two Stat-X First Responder units (they bought one more after the first fire) and that knocked down the fire enough to extricate the people from the burning building and get them out. The fire department arrived within minutes and was able to extinguish the fire.
The Chief is very pleased he bought the Stat-X First Responder product and will continue to purchase them as he needs them. He credits the Stat-X First Responder with saving the lives of the two occupants.”
Fire in crawl space
“We recently purchased a 4 pack of Stat-X First Responders®. Today we got the chance to use one of them and I must say my whole dept. was very impressed with what it did. We had only seen videos of its performance. We were called for a fire in a crawl space. When we arrived a small portion in the space was on fire. Our chief immediately used a Stat-X and it worked wonders. We used very minimal water. The best part of the story is that the owner had just purchased the house and had made only one payment. Because of your product a $100,000+ home is still standing. If she really wanted to she could have slept there tonight. Thank you and we will be purchasing more soon. We are also going to convince our neighboring depts. to purchase Stat-X.”

Stat-X saves mobile home!
“Fortunately, the fire department’s staff car was equipped with a Stat-X First Responder® when the Claremont Fire Department was alerted to an interior mobile home fire. The first fire fighter on the scene surveyed the area and immediately deployed the Stat-X First Responder in the old, lightweight, combustible mobile home. The fire was contained until the fire engine arrived with water. The unit suppressed the fire and made the home interior safe for operation when the fire truck arrived on the scene. Without the Stat-X First Responder the fire would have been “out-of-hand” when the fire truck arrived.”
The Stat-X First Responder performed as advertised according to Chief Bergeron, Claremont Fire Department
Closet fire extinguished!
“I arrived first on scene to a closet fire. Since our first due engine was not on scene yet I tossed the Stat-X First Responder® into the closet that started to have flames rolling out of it over my head. As soon as I tossed it in, I closed the door and held it while I listened to the Stat-X discharge. Once I heard it finish discharging I peeked inside quickly and noticed the fire was extinguished. The engine arrived shortly after and we overhauled the room as needed. This product worked like a charm and damage to the house was minimal.”

Apartment fire suppressed!
“I had a fire on the first floor of a garden apartment complex which was venting out of the windows and auto exposing to the second floor. I was first on scene and my first due engine was about two minutes out. I deployed a Stat-X First Responder into the first floor window. The device went off and kept the fire in check until I could stretch my first line and effect an interior attack. Each chief’s vehicle was issued a Stat-X First Responder at the beginning of last year. I was the first to use it and was impressed with the results.”

The value of the Stat-X First Reponder.
“…with the deployment of the Stat-X First Responders® our department discovered the value of your product. Following the incident, the insurance company also committed on the use of the product and discovered that fire spread within the device use was curtailed dramatically. I am thoroughly pleased with the results of your product and our department will be using the devices as another tool in aiding our firefighting efforts.”
