5.11 Tactical Men’s Taclite EMT Pants

Known for being innovators who make purpose-built gear designed to handle the most demanding missions, the rugged, durable 5.11 Tactical Men’s Taclite EMT Pants provide everything for the professional who demands the best in an EMS pant. Here’s why:

A breathable, warm-weather alternative to traditional twill EMS pants, the 5.11 Tactical Men’s Taclite EMT Pants are constructed from lightweight, 6.14-ounce Taclite ripstop fabric and fade-resistant, poly-cotton twill. Featuring a self-adjusting waistband and a fully gusseted crotch, these innovative pants feature double-reinforced seat and knees designed specifically to increase comfort and mobility. Here are some additional specs:

  • treated with Teflon for stain, soil, and liquid-stain resistance
  • comfortable, self-adjusting tunnel waistband moves with you
  • equipped with Prym® snaps and a YKK® zipper
  • outfitted with full-sized cargo pockets with internal dividers and external EMS-specific pockets
  • utility pockets are located at the calf

The 5.11 Tactical Men’s Taclite EMT Pants can easily accommodate radio straps or other accessories thanks to Double Time belt loops along with an extra-wide 1 ½-inch belt coupled with a thinner 3/8-inch loop on top of that. Additionally, your shirt will always be tucked in because of the gripper material located inside of the waistband.

Quick-Pik Six-inch Shove Knife

The versatile, cleverly designed EMI Quick-Pik Six-inch Shove Knife is an ideal tool for easily opening interior, residential, or office doors without dealing out too much damage to them in the process. Here’s why and how:

Crafted of semi-rigid, 10-guage steel, the EMI Quick-Pik Six-inch Shove Knife features an indented end designed specifically to release simple, “key-in-knob” locks, and it is effective from either side of a door. When dealing with inward-swinging doors (away from you), just insert the thin, flexible Quick-Pik blade behind the molding stop and push or slide the blade to retract the latch.

To use the knife on outwardly swinging doors (toward you) simply slip the knife in from below or above the latch point. Once in place, jiggle and pull the knife in order to hook and retract the latch. When not in use, a two-piece protective sleeve covers the blade to ensure maximum safety. Additionally, it is considered to be an excellent training tool, as it is extensively used in fire towers by first responders to learn how to correctly slip spring-latch locks.

Aervoe Rechargeable LED Flare Kit

Aervoe Industries, Inc. is recognized as a leading manufacturer and marketer of industrial products and prides itself on offering consistent quality to their customers, thereby keeping them ahead of their competition. Recent product expansion has led the company to create new, product-specific categories, one of which is safety, traffic control, and outdoor products – the Aervoe 6 Flare Kit being a standout example of this category.

The lightweight kit only weighs 14 pounds and is ideal for first responders who need to spot hazards on roads, highlight detours, or provide adequate lighting during repair operations. The kit features six durable, crush- and corrosion-proof, LED emergency road flares that do not produce flames, smoke, or harmful byproducts. Here’s why they’re so effective:

  • Each flare measures 5.25 inches long by 4.25 inches wide by 1.875 inches tall and weighs eight ounces.

  • Thanks to being equipped with two rows of 24 ultra-bright LEDs, they are visible up to one mile.

  • They are slightly larger than Aervoe’s standard LED flares, meaning first responders can have double the light output.

  • Choose from five flashing patterns, including SOS Rescue (Morse Code).

  • They are waterproof and submersible up to 50 feet.

  • No batteries are required; simply recharge them, and they’ll be ready whenever you need them.

Additionally, the flares can be easily attached to a number of metal surfaces, including cars, trucks, and signs because of their magnets. Choose among two lantern-color schemes: Orange Body with Red LEDs or Yellow Body with Amber LEDS. As an added bonus, the kit’s storage case doubles as a charging case for a 120-volt wall charger and a 12-volt car charger (both included).

New from BEAR-iatrics: Bear Pods

BEAR-iatrics, Inc. specializes in providing innovative products that are designed to lower your patient’s anxiety level, speed up transport time, and help reduce back injuries to your transport crew. The new BEAR-iatrics Bear Pods are capable of all that and more.

Improving on the design of the original BEAR, the pods comfortably secure bariatric patients to cots to ensure safe, efficient transportation. They are designed to permanently attach to the frame of any brand or size of cot thanks to sturdy, durable frame straps. The pods do not have fragile zippers that can break easily and at the worst possible times. Additionally, the pods can be attached to the sides of the cot, which avoids any interference with the side rails. Simply lift the mattress and fold the pods underneath the mattress for safe storage.

They can efficiently secure patients who measure 4 to 5 feet tall and weigh between 300 and 700 pounds to a standard, 20-inch-wide cot. The risk of cot tipping is greatly reduced due to bolstered stability: The pods are able to prevent sudden, lateral shift caused by the uncontrolled abdominal mass of larger patients.
