TCAT Takes Part in Fire Suppressant Testing
In 2011 Texas experienced around 31,453 fires that burned more than 4 million acres. During that time, 2,947 homes were lost and more than 2,700 other structures were lost or damaged. The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) Product Development Center coordinated the testing of a product, called TetraKO, in partnership with the Texas A&M Forest Service and Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station's (TEES) Texas Center for Applied Technology (TCAT).
