INFORMATION & IDEAS
The Safariland Group, teaming with DuPont Protection Technologies, SAATI and TexTech, announced the release of an all-new line of ABA Xtreme body armor solutions for law enforcement.
To kick off the “Together We Rise to any Challenge” project, we awarded a station house entertainment system to one of this year’s participants. This year’s winner is Patrick O’Rourke from the Garden City Fire Department in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. Congratulations, Patrick.
Second Chance® has released its new family of armor solutions – The Summit™ ST. The Summit ST design was developed to offer an all DuPont™ Kevlar® ballistic package. DuPont™ Kevlar® fibers have pioneered the industry in the science of ballistic protection for more than 40 years. By uniting Kevlar® with GORE-TEX® fabrics, Second Chance has created one of the thinnest, most flexible vests available.
For over 40 years, DuPont™ Nomex® and Kevlar® have been committed to providing material solutions that help improve the safety of workers—from industrial workers to EMTs and firefighters. ‘Together We Rise to Any Challenge’ was created to help document the life-saving stories of firefighters through a combination of videotaped interviews and individual portraits.
