identiFIRE Product Review
Recently my buddy who owns IdentiFire Safety Products (www.identifiresafety.com) contacted me about a new product, the “IdentiFire”. It’s a glow in the dark and reflective personalized sticker that goes on your SCBA face mask.
My initial response was that he had hit a home run with the name of the product line. I was curious how well the product would actually work though. I can’t count the number of times I have been bumping into other firefighters in the blackness of overhaul. I would find myself trying to make out the numbers on helmet shields trying to figure out if I was with the right crew. Three or four fire companies packed into a small single family home can get pretty cramped and in the dark it’s easy to lose track of who is who. When I saw the identiFire face mask sticker, I thought it was one of the best ideas I have seen in a long time. I know exactly who I am looking at because their name is glowing directly in front of me. I find this to not only be helpful, but also improve fire ground safety through improved accountability.
I was given a bunch of the face mask stickers to pass out to members of my department. After a trial period, both in training and in service, I have received all positive feedback.
The identiFire is very well crafted by piecing together a durable reflective sticker on top of the glowing material. Each sticker is custom fitted to your brand of face piece. The sticker is very visible without restricting vision or covering up the Heads Up Display. For a light charged glowing material the identiFire stays activated for a good amount of time. I have also found that it will quickly recharge with just a little light. Hit it with your flash light for 5-10 seconds and you are back in business.
Every time I visit the website www.identifiresafety.com they have a new product out. The two that I am most impressed with are the identiFire leather helmet shield, and helmet strap. Bother are reflective, glow in the dark and customizable with name and company identification.
I highly recommend visiting the website www.identifiresafety.com. I guarantee you will find 2 or 3 items you will want. The best part is everything is very reasonably priced considering it’s all customized and individually made based on your specs.
