Fogmaker Fire Suppression Systems Approved for Installation on School Bus Fleets Across Georgia

Exton, PA, May 23, 2019 – Fogmaker North America, a global leader in self-contained water mist fire suppression systems, is one of the latest additions to the Georgia state school bus requirements. The 2019 Georgia School Bus Specifications were recently approved by the State Board of Education, resulting in a change in the Fire Suppression specification to allow for a water-based solution.

According to a recent U.S. Department of Transportation study, there are over 380 school bus fires reported every year, with the majority initiating in and around the engine compartment. To address this issue, a number of contractors and local school districts are appointing impactful solutions to significantly enhance the safety of students they transport daily.

“We’re looking forward to working with school district officials across Georgia to show them the environmental and performance advantages of our high pressure water mist system,” stated Kent Tyler, Executive Vice President, Fogmaker North America. “Fire Suppression is a critically important safety issue with bus fires happening daily. Our patented Fogmaker technology is designed to not only automatically suppress these thermal events, but also provide additional time for occupants to safely evacuate the bus.”
