They wanted to tell us a bit about their first response kit, and after we checked it out we figured you'd want to read about it too — it addresses some things we hadn't really thought of before, like the clothing and debris fires after the bombing in Boston. Here's what they have to say about the kit.

The First Response KIT is ideal for an individual to carry on their person in the event a quick response is needed for hemorrhage control or immediate casualty care of various means.  The kit can attach to MOLLE horizontal or vertically, has a snap clasp with hook and loop and the inside pouch can be torn away and dispersed as necessary for mobility purposes and ease of use.

In today's time, we all must think outside of the box when being proactive.  The thought of combining a fire suppression tool in an IFAK would seem very strange years back!  A unique tool, that would render a small amount of fire suppression capability, rapid cooling to hot surfaces and positive preservation of the burn, seemed like just the answer to the custom IFAK units we make up at Blaze Defense Systems in Pelham, Alabama.

During the Boston City bombing a few years back, smoldering clothing and severed limbs were scattered across the sidewalks in a catastrophic mass casualty nightmare for first responders to arrive upon. Instances such as this particular incident and others, makes thinking outside the box a must!
