"On this farm we have firefighting equipment which can carry a total of three and a half tons of water. Bushfires swept through this valley on the 7th and 8th of February this year. To our surprise, the little 100lt slip-on on the back of our four-wheeler was by far the most valuable unit.
We carried a 1lt bottle of BLAZETAMER380® roughly marked in 200ml and added this amount to the water each time we refilled. Despite a very weak spray pattern, fires were quenched immediately and did not re-ignite. An amazing sight in phalaris grassfires! We later removed filters on the pump and enlarged the nozzle to give better delivery.
The BLAZETAMER380® also enabled us to save fiercely burning gum trees, burning and smouldering logs and fence posts etc. In other places spot-fires, even in tall phalaris were quickly doused with a minimum of water. (We had sprayed around the house and garden first to give them some protection while we did all of the above).
When chasing one fast-moving grass fire, I ran out of mix at a crucial moment and used 20lt of plain water til help came. I was immediately faced with the usual problems when fighting grass fires; flames jumping ahead of the fire fringe; flaring up behind; and leaving smoldering dung pats.
After properly refilling the tank with water and adding BLAZETAMER380®, I was rapidly able to regain control of the fire. This was an ungrazed paddock of tall phalaris and despite the flames in front of me arching over the little four-wheeler, neither the treated tyres, nor the treated shade-cloth on the canopy were even marked. Nor were the clothes I had sprayed, and I was not aware of any excessive heat. My husband had a similar experience later the same night in steeper hill country.
The result was three and a half kilometres of blackened earth on the west side of the road, and seemingly untouched grass on ours.
Now we plan to use the product in all fire equipment."

"We were introduced to this product through brigade member Steve Tobin.
We were given some of the product to use at our annual town burn for blacking out, where the product was given out to other brigade members to try both in our tankers and in their private vehicles. The results were quite positive with many “old timers” impressed with the way the product worked and the fact that items that were typically difficult to fully extinguish eg old dry cow pats were completely put out on the first application. After a successful trial we then had the opportunity to meet with John Stepanic where he came and fully explained the way the product worked and showed us working demos of it being used in an aerial application and discussed the many questions we had.
In December 2014 we experienced a 5500 hectare wildfire in our patch and to me that’s where BLAZETAMER380® really came into its own. If you can imagine the chaos that’s involved with a wildfire event of this size you can appreciate the relief when you can use a product that works as effectively as BLAZETAMER380®.
Tall and hollow burning trees known as candles were extinguished easily and permanently with the use of the product.
With the results I’ve seen with personal experience I would recommend the use of BLAZETAMER380®."
