-- Wildfire Watch, Inc. is running a campaign on Indiegogo in order to raise funds to manufacture hundreds to thousands of sensors for wildfire detection.
The Wildfire Watch, Inc. goal is to provide affordable early detection wildfire sensing technology for small to very large national and state forests, campgrounds, power line corridors, forested communities, grasslands, etc. We have created a way for people to help the global effort to reduce wildfires (and greenhouse gases!) in a meaningful way, one that is affordable, and one in which hundreds to thousands of people can participate quickly and effect a real and permanent change.
"If you've ever lost everything you own to a fire, except literally the shirt on your back, as I and my family have, you know that you're thankful to be alive, but you feel the agony of remembering what you lost and cherished so much--your family pictures, the toys of your children, the house you and your spouse worked so hard to get, perhaps even your pet, and so on. You wouldn't wish such a horrible fate on anyone, and in fact, just the opposite: you'd want to wish for them an early warning before a wildfire destroyed everything."
said Jim Hendee who is co-inventor of the device.
Also Jim states that, "the increase of greenhouse gases warms our planet, and, in a vicious circle, makes wildfires even more likely to start. Not only are you helping to stop wildfires, you are also helping to reduce climate change! Have you ever felt totally powerless to do anything about climate change? That no longer is the case! With every Wildfire Watch sensor you install, you are helping to reverse climate change."
With just 34 days left in this campaign, your support is needed to raise money to continue the manufacturing of the thousands of these sensors that we know can help save lives and property, and to make sure we have the legal groundwork necessary to go to market. Please consider getting involved, at whatever level you can, and help "Affordable Wildfire Detection for Everyone
" get funded!
