By the end of this month, the new Flame Metals products will be ready to ship to consumers.
The company is now offering a few samples of the products for the first time, with more to come.
FlameMetals CEO John O’Donnell says the company is working with state and local authorities to protect the public and residents from fire hazards.
In an email to Mashable, O’Brien says FlameMetals is working on a number of safety and fire mitigation measures, including installing fire extinguishers in all of its facilities, increasing the use of ventilation and smoke detectors in all areas, and adding additional fire safety features to all products.
He also says Flame Metls safety team is also working with the Maryland Office of Emergency Services and is working closely with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies to develop a public safety plan.
For the first half of the year, the company will begin distributing a limited amount of Flame Metalls products.
The Maryland Department of Public Works and the Maryland Department on Environmental Quality will review and evaluate each Flame Metallings product to ensure they comply with state, local and federal regulations.
“This is not just a business issue,” O’Connors emails.
“It is a public health issue.”
