Johnson brings with him 22 years of sales and industry experience spanning EMS, fire rescue and law enforcement. 

“Chip has a very unique skillset, something we’ve been looking for to elevate our StrongArm™ sales opportunity,” said Mike Canon, director of rescue sales for HURST Jaws of Life, Inc. “He has a remarkable background in fire rescue and law enforcement and a passion for those in public service.
