June 28, 2012 - Jupiter, FL -- GelTech Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GLTC), creators of FireIce, a revolutionary water enhancing fire suppressant that has the potential to change current firefighting techniques globally announces that FireIce was successfully dropped by single engine air tankers (SEATS) engaged to aerially combat the 300+ acre Romero wildfire near Corrales, New Mexico. FireIce and the SEATs pilots have been credited with preventing this fire from becoming another large fire.
Dutch Snyder, a 27 year veteran SEAT pilot commented, "I have never seen a retardant hold a fire line like FireIce or any product knockdown a fire so quickly as a suppressant. With the added safety factor of being lightweight, FireIce improves the performance of any aircraft flown on wildland fires. This is the product every air tanker pilot should have onboard. Being environmentally safe, FireIce makes everyone on the job in the air or on the ground feel right."
“Michael Cordani, chief executive officer of GelTech Solutions, stated, “This is an important milestone of the five year process to bring our game-changing FireIce fire suppressant and retardant to the wildfire industry. The success of FireIce on the Romero fire in New Mexico should begin to build momentum for our product and drive added awareness to other state and federal agencies responsible for protecting their lands. Once they become aware, we feel confident they will see the benefits of using our product which is highly effective and environmentally non-toxic to plant, wildlife and fish populations."
