Asset Fire Protection Solutions

Fires in the United States have been increasing in size and damage for the last 30 years. This is caused by increasing temperatures that have led to drier conditions, increased drought, and longer fire seasons. As the size and damage increase, so has the cost. Fire spending was four times higher in the last 20 years compared to the previous 30 years. Utility hardening programs should include fire protection as a key component.

Current fire hardening solutions include moving lines underground, utilizing alternate materials such as steel and concrete, and applying remedial and protective products. Some of these solutions are expensive and require years to complete, meaning they won’t be ready for the next fire season.
