Firewise, FireSafe and Fire Adapted Communities

At The Mitagator LLC, we are passionate about supporting forest health and community mitigation efforts. As part of that initiative, we’ve set up a special program for local Firewise, Fire Safe and Fire Adapted organizations.

Bulk discounts on five or more units are available to your local group for $70 each when you schedule a wildfire mitigation talk with Bill Link. There is no charge to schedule Bill to talk to your group; his first priority is fire mitigation and forest health education, and he is always happy to attend community meetings to help in any way he can. To thank you, we will donate seven percent of any sales to your members back to your organization (or the organization of your choice). Contact us to have Bill attend your next meeting.

If time, distance or…life create scheduling conflicts, contact us to arrange an online order. Orders of five or more units are $80 each – including shipping. No matter how many your order, we’ll donate seven percent of your online purchase back to your group.

The Mitagator™ Fire Mitigation Tool is perfect for Firewise communities and unlike any other property maintenance tool on the market. It’s more powerful than a rake, hoe, pitchfork or McLeod. It clears ground fuels down to the dirt for fire mitigation colorado and fire mitigation california. It removes 80% 90% of needles, leaves, twigs and other fine ground debris. But it’s strong enough to quickly pile and move large branches for mitigation measures for forest fires too. It is the best thatching/dethatching tool, pine needle rake and pond rake you can buy for mitigation steps for wildfires.

Are there other fire mitigation tools for homeowners that work better than a pine needle rake?

No other tool works as well to take mitigation measures for forest fires or mitigation steps for wildfires. If you are doing fire mitigation in california or fire mitigation in colorado this is the only tool you need. The Mitagator is better than a rake, a rake misses 50%-80% of needles, cones and other small litter on the first pass – you have to rake the same area over and over to really clear the ground. Large areas can be cleaned better than a pine needle rake in minutes instead of hours. Clearing years of pine needles from the ground for wildfire mitigation allows more moisture into the soil and encourages new, green grass growth. With The Mitagator, you’re not only lowering the risk of wildfire spread through ground fuels, you’re bringing new life to the land.
