Stat-X First Responder® Aerosol Fire Suppression Tool

The Next Generation of Fire Protection

The Stat-X First Responder® is a handheld emergency fire suppression tool (FST) designed for quick deployment in small, early-stage fires within enclosed spaces. This lightweight device, activated by a pull actuator, can be tossed into a fire, where it releases a condensed aerosol agent within seconds to immediately suppress the flames. Its rapid response capability helps contain fires before they become unmanageable, reducing the need for extensive fire department intervention and minimizing water damage and downtime.

Ideal for firefighters, police, and other first responders, the Stat-X First Responder buys crucial time during emergencies. It aids in preventing flashovers, provides escape routes through flames, and is particularly useful for utility workers in hazardous environments like underground vaults. By slowing the fire’s progression, it ensures safety for personnel and facilitates a controlled response, making it an essential addition to any emergency response toolkit.

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.

Container. The unit housing is constructed of metal and incorporates insulating/cooling material. The discharge ports for agent release are located around the circumference of the housing. The housing shall accept a M228 initiator and shall be non-pressurized prior to system activation.
Initiator. The initiator complys with MIL specification DTL9235210 (modified for output charge) and is subject to 100% reliability testing by means of x-ray.

Safety. Units incorporate dual safety devices — a crimped safety pin requiring a twist motion prior to pulling the safety pin by means of a ring attachment. The initiator shall incorporate a minimum five second delay timer prior to activation.

Aerosol Agent. Aerosol generated is potassium based and manufacturer shall provide fifteen (15) minute time weighted average data from an independent United States laboratory demonstrating that the aerosol does not produce (at normal design concentrations) harmful levels of CO, CO2, and NOx based on NIOSH standards. Agent has no ozone depletion potential and no global warming potential. Agent is approved for commercial sale by the US EPA.

Dimensions. Unit contains 500 grams of aerosol forming composition and is 5.625 inches tall (6.875 including initiator mechanism) with a diameter of 3.188 inches. Total unit weight is < 2.7 lbs.

Coverage will be dependent on the specific characteristics of the situation encountered — class of fire, level of involvement, areas of potential leakage, etc. Tests have shown significant suppression effects up to an 8 ft high x 10 ft x 10 ft room — around twenty (20) cubic meters. More units would be required for a larger volume or spaces with excessive leakage. The aerosol flows and spreads rapidly throughout the volume, in a manner similar to a gas. However, since the aerosol is buoyant, more may be required in a high ceiling situation.

The Stat-X First Responder is most effective when thrown directly at or near the fire.


Fire Fighter
Scenario A
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.

Scenario B
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.

Scenario C
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.

Scenario A
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.

Scenario B
SWAT arrives on site and must deploy “flash bangers” into an area. 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.

Scenario C
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.

Energy Company Employee
Scenario A
The worst case – fire erupts in a manhole with worker stuck in the manhole and either incapacitated or unable to escape though the flames. Co-worker immediately deploys a condensed aerosol Stat-X First Responder and tosses it into the manhole away from the trapped worker. It will suppress/extinguish the fire, buying valuable time for evacuation or power shutdown.

Scenario B
Underground transformer fire, or any below grade enclosed space fire. Just twist and pull the ring, toss a Stat-X First Responder in. It will suppress/extinguish the fire, buying valuable time for evacuation or power shutdown.

StatX First Responder® Aerosol Fire Suppression Tool (FST)

The compact size of the Stat-X First Responder makes it easily portable for emergency situations. In the event of a fire, activation is straightforward: remove the safety clip, pull the ring pin, and throw the unit directly at or near the fire. It actuates after a 3.5-second delay, releasing an ultra-fine, potassium-based aerosol.

This aerosol provides rapid fire suppression by interfering with the flame’s free radicals without reducing oxygen levels. Stat-X is significantly more effective on an agent weight basis than other alternatives. The aerosol remains suspended after discharge, offering continued fire suppression to prevent re-ignition.
