FoxFury Lighting Solutions is partnering with the NPS-DDP (National Public Safety Drone Donation Program) in an effort to bring UAV/UAS technology to public safety agencies in need across the country. For the month of May, FoxFury pledges a percentage of its drone lighting sales to NPS-DDP with the goal of donating drones to agencies that have applied for program consideration. Dozens of fire departments, search and rescue teams, local police, border security, and more apply to NPS-DDP in the hopes of receiving drone technology that they cannot otherwise acquire on their own to help their communities. Public Safety Agencies NPS-DDP accepts donations from private citizens, drone manufacturers, or corporate donors like FoxFury. The program then matches applicants with donors to provide as many drones as possible to departments in need. FoxFury Lighting Solutions is the creator of the Rugo Drone & Camera Light FoxFury Lighting Solutions is the creator of the Rugo Drone & Camera Light. The Rugo is a rugged go-anywhere light that can mount to a variety of drones, providing public safety agencies with needed lighting during search, inspection, and photo/video applications.

Drone mounts are available for the following drones: DJI Phantom 4, DJI Inspire, DJI Matrice, Yuneec, Typhoon H, and Yuneec H520.

FoxFury Lighting Solutions introduces the new and improved Scout Clip Light. The extremely versatile Scout Clip Light serves as a utility light, task light, search light, and more. This durable light is waterproof and meets NFPA fire resistant requirements, so users can rely on it working in extreme environments. It's lightweight, compact, and the built in J-Clip ensures it stays with users no matter where they go. The Scout comes in either a black or orange exterior with two different LED options; all white or white and red. The Scout's secure J-Clip allows it to be worn in a variety of ways including on a backpack, pocket, belt, vest, and even MOLLE system. The teeth on the inside of the clip ensure it stays in place no matter how rugged the task a user needs it for, allowing the user to work uninterrupted and hands free. Low Light Conditions The Scout is available with two LED options; all white or white and red. White LED models are recommended for users that want to use the Scout primarily for search or inspections while the white & red LED models are recommended for users who want to see and be seen. The alternating flash mode on the white and red LED models can be used as a safety beacon as well The red LEDs help preserve night vision in low light conditions. This is useful for tactical night operations, reading a map or paperwork in the dark, or even checking in on the kids without waking them up at night. The alternating flash mode on the white and red LED models can be used as a safety beacon as well, alerting others to your position. This could be used during a roadside emergency, a search and rescue operation, or even while riding a bike along a busy road. Improved Scout Models The Scout is designed to be submersible, fire resistant, and impact resistant. Its small, compact design means it doesn’t take up much space, and the low profile sits well on a belt or vest. “We’re excited to offer these new and improved Scout models. We responded to customer feedback by introducing this secure J-Clip, and the light is now better than ever. We feel it will help save time and lives” said Antonio Cugini, Director of Marketing at FoxFury Lighting Solutions. The Scout is truly a rugged, go anywhere light. Police officers can use it to stay safe on the side of the road. Fire investigators can use it to inspect tight spaces. Fishermen can use it as a safety beacon on the water. Pet owners can use it to walk their dogs late at night. The limits are endless, which makes the Scout the perfect everyday light.
A team from FoxFury Lighting Solutions arrived in Butte County, California yesterday as part of a massive effort to locate the remains of those missing and dead from the Camp Fire. According to the latest updates, at least 79 people are dead, although the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) expects that number to rise. Braving dangerous air quality issues, destroyed neighborhoods, and almost impassible roadways, the FoxFury team joined forces with responders in Butte County yesterday, including the National Guard, to help search over 11,000 sites for clues as to the location of the missing. FoxFury brought Nomad® Scene Lights as well as a variety of forensic lighting sources to the scene so that search teams can continue to work into the night. Seeking Information While the rain may help stop or slow the Camp Fire, it brings with it the risk of landslides, mudslides, and ash flows The search continues today in the hopes of bringing closure to those still seeking information about missing loved ones. The threat of rain on Wednesday has many rescuers worried. While the rain may help stop or slow the Camp Fire, it brings with it the risk of landslides, mudslides, and ash flows that could drastically hinder any search and rescue efforts including the search for and discovery of remains amidst the catastrophic amount of debris left by the raging fires. “We have never done this before,” said FoxFury Marketing Director Antonio Cugini as they completed their first search with the National Guard. “I don’t think anyone has ever done this to be honest. This scene is so massive. It is just all bombed out. Everything is black. Nothing is recognizable.” Collection Of Evidence “Normally, forensic lights are used in a confined space or in a small area. This is not the scenario here,” explained Chris Giles, FoxFury Videographer and Lighting Technician, searching alongside Cugini. “A forensic light source is a crime scene investigator's and lab technician's tool for enhancing observation, photography, and collection of evidence. We are hoping that our forensic scene lights can help these teams cover more ground.” With the incoming rain threats, we wanted to give these responders every advantage" The search area is indeed massive. According to CAL Fire early this morning, the Camp Fire in Butte County was 151,272 acres in size and 70 percent contained by the 4,736 personnel still battling the flames. “With the incoming rain threats, we wanted to give these responders every advantage,” Cugini said when asked why the company decided to send the specialty lights to Butte County. “After speaking with the Coroner’s office, we knew that we had to at least try to add tools to the search effort.” Amount Of Destruction Cugini shared that he was not prepared for the amount of destruction that surrounded them on Monday night, expressing that it was overwhelming. “This is a massive job. You cannot understand unless you are standing here in the middle of it how large this scene is and how bad it really is.” CAL FIRE said 11,713 homes and 472 commercial structures had been destroyed in the fire so far, and another 14,500 structures are still threatened. Butte County reported this morning that 630 people are still missing.
