The future of firefighting
Wildfires are the biggest environmental threat facing the world. Millions of acres of land burned in the Western US, displacing tens of thousands of people and forcing millions to breathe in unhealthy air for months.
With warmer and drier seasons, in places like California, wildfires are becoming a year around risk. At HEN, our mission is to use the power of science to equip our firefighters with the most advanced tools and technologies.
HEN Nozzles suppress fire Up to 3x Faster using 50% less water
Growing Risk of Wildfires
Wildfires are getting Bigger, More Frequent and More Destructive
Impact on water conservation in California
2022 is the driest year on record in California.
HEN Nozzles can allow engine to cover 2X more distance with same amount of water. This not only helps conserve water but saves precious time that would otherwise be required to refill the engines. This has become even more critical because of severe drought and high wildfire risk.
