First Responder 500
The Stat-X First Responder®
is a new and innovative tool designed to aid in the suppression of fires and for use as a personal protection device for fire fighters in emergency egress or entrance situations. It delivers a highly effective aerosol fire suppression agent – Stat-X.
The small size of the Stat-X First Responder makes it easily portable. In the event of a fire, Stat-X First Responder units are activated by a twist and pull of the ring pin while holding the unit securely. The unit can then be thrown near the fire – where it will actuate following a 3.5 second time delay. Upon activation, the Stat-X First Responder produces an exceptionally effective, ultra-fine, potassium-based aerosol that provides extremely fast knockdown and rapid suppression of fires. On an agent weight basis, Stat-X aerosol is significantly more effective than other agent alternatives. It does not reduce the oxygen levels. Fire suppression is achieved through interference between the ultra-fine aerosol particulate and the flame’s free radicals – terminating propagation of the fire. The agent will hang in suspension after delivery providing ongoing suppression capabilities.

- 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 First Responder and tosses it into the manhole away from the trapped worker. It will suppress/extinguish the fire, buying 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 First Responder in. Deploy another as necessary to suppress/extinguish the fire reducing damage and downtime.
- 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 bang devices into an area to stun criminals. These devices 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.
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 10 ft x 10 ft room – around 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.
