  • There are over 210,000 wildfires each year, worldwide; and more than 70,000* in the United States alone. (View a realtime US wildfire map here)

  • Governments are under tremendous fiscal constraints and are unable to purchase & maintain specially configured, single mission aircraft to meet the demand required to suppress wildfires.

  •  A roll-on roll-off system utilizing standard cargo aircraft procedures would exponentially expand the availability of aircraft and crew worldwide

  • Higher altitude drops would enable full 24 hour fire suppression and allow for round the clock suppression. “The fire no longer owns the night”

  • Caylym has a patented system that answers this global problem with a low cost, simple, safe and effective solution: The Guardian.
