Safariland SONS Trauma Kits in Stock

April 30th, 2014 | No Comments | Posted in Products
SONS-TRAUMA-KITSafariland has an innovative new personal trauma kit for public safety officers that is “worn” rather then “carried”. Only 1/2″ thick, the kit is designed to fit in the ballistic vest trauma plate pocket behind the trauma plate. That way, when you put on your vest, you are putting on your trauma kit as well, its not something you have to remember to put in a thigh pocket, or leave in the unit after your shift, or forget to bring with you on an OT shift. We have these in stock now.

The Safariland Group announces today an agreement with Phokus Research Group to distribute the innovative Sons Trauma Kit to its public safety customers. These kits feature a low-profile, flat design at only one-half inch thick and about one-half pound in weight, and offers quick accessibility for life-saving first responder treatment. They are extremely durable and uniquely carried comfortably and securely behind the operator’s ballistic trauma plate or under concealable armor and easily removed when needed. The Sons Trauma Kit is offered in two standard sizes with a total of five varieties to offer kits for various missions or team preferences.

“The SONS Trauma Kit is a perfect complement to our body armor solutions,” said Todd Mackler, Vice President of Body Armor for The Safariland Group. “This innovative kit frees up valuable duty space for operators while providing essential life-saving tools. This product is a true innovation that changes the playing field in terms of carrying first responder life-saving trauma kits, as this product is not merely carried, but it is “worn” as an extension of the user’s ballistic vest.”

Packed in heavy-duty medical-grade vinyl and machine pressure sealed with RF-welded seams, it creates weatherproof protection for the critical medical supplies inside. The Sons Trauma Kits follow all Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) Guidelines and Protocols and feature high-quality, combat-proven components. The contents are packed around injury patterns in order of priority for care and the patent-pending design includes a pull-tab and rip-cord for quick deployment. These highly durable trauma kits are immediately accessible, allowing for fast treatment when seconds count. All kits are designed to last 24-30 months. The Sons Trauma Kit has been proven in Afghanistan and Iraq for four years and now this product is available for tactical teams and law enforcement patrol officers.

The First Responder Trauma Kit is 9” x 12”, less than one-inch thick and weighs approximately one-half pound. This version is ideal for tactical teams to wear in their vest plate pocket behind the operator’s ballistic plate. The First Responder Low-Visibility Trauma Kit is 6” x 9”, less than one-inch thick and weighs approximately one-half pound. This version is ideal for patrol officers to insert into the soft trauma plate pocket of their concealable vest, store in a glove compartment, insert into a cargo pants pocket, or keep in a gear bag.

The Sons Trauma Kits will be available at dealers and distributors of the Safariland Group in February. MSRPs are as follows.

FRTK-1 First Responder basic kit – $55.00
FRTK-2 First Responder with Occlusive – $100.00

Leatherman’s new Raptor EMS/Rescue shears have been so popular we haven’t been able to keep any in stock, they are selling faster than .22 ammo! We did secure a supply when we attended the SHOT Show, though, and those will run out soon. The Raptors have 6 tools, including an O2 key, and can fold up to be carried by the attached pocket clip, or in the included belt holster.  If you have been considering these shears, come get them now, we’ll run out this month and I don’t know when we’ll get more.

Blackinton Badges – New Gunmetal Finish

April 2nd, 2014 | No Comments | Posted in Products
GunMetalBlackinton Badges has come up with a new “Gunmetal” finish for badges. This new finish is dark charcoal in color with a hint of blue, and the finish gives the badge a slight sheen.  The gunmetal finish is lacquered for durability and built to last. Its unique mystic color makes gunmetal a great finish to use on a commemorative badge or anniversary badge.  For the undercover detective or SWAT team member the gunmetal badge finish offers a nice variation to the typical all color badge. For a real “pop” to your badge, combine the Gunmetal finish in a two-tone badge with gold or silver panels. We can design a new badge, or just a variation, for your department or agency. We’ve been authorized badge suppliers to many federal, state, and local agencies, and can help your agency with this important, secure, identity product.
