FoxFury exhibits its LED scene lights at IAEM/EMEX 2013
Published on 30 October 2013
FoxFury Lighting Solutions exhibited its LED headlamps, flashlights and portable, rechargeable area lights at the IAEM 61st Annual Conference & EMEX 2013 in Reno, NV. This international emergency management event was from October 25 to 30.
Emergency managers work hard to prepare their communities for when disasters (including severe weather) strike. This includes disaster preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation planning. Staying up to date on the latest training at IAEM educates managers on best practices. Learning about new life-saving tools at EMEX may help save time, resources and even lives.
Lighting is critical in planning and incident response. When emergencies strike, power failures often ensue and lighting is at a premium. Millions of Americans were without power (and therefore blacked out) for days to weeks last year due to severe weather events like Hurricane Sandy. Since generators and fuel are harder to come by in blackouts, battery powered LED lighting in the form of flashlights, headlamps and area lights is vital.
FoxFury offers dependable, portable and long lasting LED lights that assist emergency managers, homeland security professionals and first responders in disaster planning and recovery work. FoxFury featured the following lights at EMEX in booth #511:
Antonio Cugini and Mike McBride of FoxFury and Eddy Weiss of C4L & Associates were on hand to assist. The C4L & Associates disaster response team (C4LDRT) has used FoxFury's lighting tools for four years in challenging recovery and response work around the US including last year's Hurricane Sandy.
"We're excited to return to EMEX and better learn how our lights can assist emergency managers,” said Cugini, VP of LE / Military Sales for FoxFury.
Weiss gave a special presentation at IAEM / EMEX titled "Overload: Can We Plan For The Unimaginable?" This program looks at the difference between planning for past disasters and planning for what might actually be in our near future.
IAEM / EMEX was from October 25 to 30. This event took place at the Silver Legacy Hotel & Reno Events Center in Reno, NV.
FoxFury also had its Reach For The Light helmet on display at EMEX. This special custom firefighter helmet was created to bring awareness to responder stress and encourage first responders to seek out help and gain victory over it. FoxFury is working with C4L & Associates, 1st Responder Treatment and a few others on this special project.
