COATESVILLE, PA, July 20, 2011—TheFireStore.com, a division of Witmer Public Safety Group, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based company, has teamed with MN8 Products, a developer of revolutionary photoluminescent products to introduce Foxfire® illuminating fire safety products to area firefighters. Foxfire will be demonstrated during the Firehouse Expo being held in Baltimore, MD July 21-23, 2011.
Foxfire products are changing the field of firefighting in keeping firefighters safe. To help firefighters face the top danger of disorientation, the product line utilizes an advanced photoluminescent technology that absorbs and stores light and then releases it as a bright luminance in the dark. Unlike high visibility colors and reflective striping that require an external light to be seen, Foxfire products act as their own light emitter. This is especially important considering that firefighters typically operate in very dark environments.
“I’ve been a firefighter for a long time, and I’ve been selling public safety gear for almost 20 years, said Jim Witmer, Founder and CEO of Witmer Public Safety Group, Inc. “I haven’t seen many products with so much potential to make firefighters safer, and our gear so much easier to track. We’re really excited to be a partner with MN8 Products in introducing Foxfire.”
When fully charged (by any light source), Foxfire products can glow for up to 17 hours. The Foxfire product line contains illuminating helmet bands; equipment bands; colored grip wrap for tools and epoxy paint kits for axes, ladders and other tools.
“One of the main dangers a firefighter faces is disorientation in dark and smoky environments,” says Zach Green, President of MN8 Products, the company behind Foxfire. “With Foxfire, firefighters can reduce the danger of disorientation as well as keep track of their crews and equipment in dark environments.”
“This incredible new photo-illuminating technology is going to change the way firefighters see their gear, find their way around, and see each other in the darkest, smokiest environments,” said Witmer. “Foxfire products don’t just glow in the dark, they get so bright they actually light up the area around them. It has the potential to make us all safer. And we’re very excited to partner with MN8 Products to bring this cutting edge technology to our customers”
