City of Rancho Cucamonga to Install FIREBird Wildfire Detection System
This Press Release was provided by Lindsey FireSense
Rancho Cucamonga, CA, Oct. 24, 2022 – The City of Rancho Cucamonga, California received $1.9 million in funding to implement an early wildfire detect on system using the FIREBird wildfire detect on system manufactured by Lindsey FireSense, LLC. Rancho Cucamonga will install 30 FIREBird devices along the City’s wildland-urban interface bordering the San Gabriel Mountain range.
“Wildfires have become increasingly common and more severe in California, and fire scientists are telling us these risks will only grow in the future,” said Keith Lindsey, president of Lindsey FireSense. “We applaud the City of Rancho Cucamonga and California Assemblymember Chris Holden in applying for and obtaining the funding for this important project. We are proud to be a partner in making the citizens of Rancho Cucamonga safer.”
FIREBird is the first wildfire detection system intended specifically for deployment along high-fire risk
rights-of-way, and wildland-urban8 interface boundaries adjacent to residential developments. Easily
mounted on any structure, FIREBird devices provide continuous wildfire detection when placed at regular intervals.
The FIREBird system requires no additional staffing and offers automatic notification of detected
wildfires to authorized personnel, typically within two minutes. Early detection of wildfires results in
faster fire response and smaller fires to contain.
A single FIREBird device can detect fires as small as 5 feet by 5 feet from as far away as 900 feet. Smaller
fires can be detected when located closer to a FIREBird unit. Each unit contains specialized thermal
sensors, cameras, and weather sensors, and uses advanced neural network computer processing. The
system may be integrated with existing emergency communication systems.
The FIREBird system will be exhibited at the Heat and Fire Expo, part of the Natural Disasters Expo
California being held at the Anaheim Convention Center on Nov. 9-10, 2022. Lindsey FireSense will be
located in Booth 515.
