Fike Donates to Elk Complex Fire Project

BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. — Fike Corp. has contributed more than 50,000 trees to American Forest’s Global ReLeaf program.

This project is another element within Fike’s sustainability initiatives. Last August, the company launched the ECARO-25plus program, designed to more than neutralize the carbon footprint of the firm’s premier clean agent fire suppression product, ECARO-25. The goals of the ECARO-25plus program include counteracting at least 100 million pounds of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere annually, and adding additional resources that support the reduction of carbon emissions.

The American Forest’s Elk Complex Fire Project is working to restore the wildfire ravaged areas of the Klamath National Forest in California. This project provides multiple benefits to local watersheds, scenery, recreation and wildlife; and improves habitats for threatened and endangered species such as the Coho and Chinook salmon, steel head trout and the California spotted owl.

“Fike has contributed more than 50,000 trees to aid in the re-forestation of this vital ecosystem,” Stilwell says. “In addition to investing a portion of all ECARO-25 direct sales, any time an ECARO-25 system is activated and a refill is ordered through Fike, the impact of the discharge will be neutralized through the ECARO-25plus program. The end result is that the total emissions of ECARO-25 now account for a negative net carbon footprint.”
