You may ask why we are here and why we would invest our time, energy… and yes, our own money in this endeavor? Because we believe we can help save a home from the destruction of a wildfire. We all live in or near areas where wildfires have ravaged neighborhoods, forests and the environment. We have seen first-hand the destruction, pain and personal devastation caused by wildfires and we want to contribute to a safe, simple and cost effective solution. We each have some aspect of experience, expertise or training to contribute to this purpose. This is who we are and why Caylym is here.
The name Caylym is taken from the Latin word caelum, which means 'sky' or 'the heavens.' The english word 'celestial; is a derivative of caelum. The term 'celestial' refers to objects above the clouds; celestial beings, or heavenly beings such as god, angel, or guardian.
