The Challenge

Today’s First-Responders face unprecedented challenges with every emergency call they answer.
Emerging threats and new technologies create safety risks every day. While departments large and small have the need for state-of-the-art safety precautions, many struggle to fund even the most basic safety needs for their personnel. 

First-Responders risk serious danger of injury every time they respond to a public call for assistance.

There is no such thing as a “routine traffic stop.” Law enforcement officers must be prepared to face threats with every traffic stop.

The ambient temperature at a fire scene can reach/exceed 1200-degrees farenheit.

Back-related injuries and patient-initiated injuries are most common among emergency medical professionals.
