Sen. Tester Does Fire Retardant Demonstration

MISSOULA -

Senator Tester toured the Forest Service Technology and Development center in Missoula on Friday.

The center is the trouble shooter for the U.S. Forest Service, making everything needed to keep firefighters safe, including fire retardant.

Tester got to scorch a square of brush in a demonstration to see how the fire retardant works. In the video you can see the fire moved a lot slower on the square with the retardant. Tester's trip comes as he gets ready to plan this year's budget, keeping fire suppression costs in mind.
