Fire-Dex Gear Keeps Firefighter Safe in Flashover

 

Messages like the one shown below are rewarding and keep all of us at Fire-Dex working and improving our gear to protect those in fire service.

SITUATION:

Nomex IIIA in action, doing its job in the worst case scenario – a flashover.
Lambton Fire Department in the province of Quebec.

RESULTS and message from our dealer:

Our distributor representative, Mike Herring of Canadian Safety Equipment, who takes care of Lambton FD, sent this message to Fire-Dex:

“Good day gentlemen,

Here is a picture of a Firedex coat that one of my client’s fireman was wearing when caught in a flashover last week. The coat, SCBA face piece and helmet sustained quite a bit of damage, but the firefighter walked away without a single burn .

My client is very happy with the performance of the coat, as we all know a flashover can hit 1000 degrees easy enough. Once again Firedex has proven how quality can save lives .

Good job to you and your team.”
