Chicago Innovation Award Winner

First Alert

Winner in: 2008
Winning Product: Fire-Fighting Aerosol Can
Winner Category: Chicago Innovation Award
Industry: Consumer Products

In 2008, First Alert developed the safest, most efficient and affordable small fire-fighting technology and managed to put it in a spray can! First Alert altered aerosol technology so that the can does not require shaking, and the spray does not agitate fires. You would think, aerosol can? Fire? Sounds like an explosion waiting to happen! Not so, an internal pouch isolates the contents from the pressure. The spray is non-toxic and biodegradable and requires only a damp cloth for clean-up. It produces no fumes and will not damage stoves or counter-tops. The can has no pin, making for a quicker response time than traditional ABC fire extinguishers. All in all, it is a revolutionary fire-safety product. In less than two years, Tundra Fire Extinguishing Spray has quickly become First Alerts fastest growing safety product. The product is available in many nationwide retailers.
