We are excited to feature the NEW PGI Cobra™ BarriAire™ Gold Hood!
Cobra™BarriAire™ Gold Hoods combine superior comfort, increased protection and maximum durability.
These hoods combine an outer layer of PGI proprietary gold FR fabric and an inner layer of ultra-lightweight, DuPont™ Nomex® Nano Flex fabric, which can inhibit penetration of many small size harmful particles. This barrier blocks 95% of harmful contaminants and potentially carcinogenic particulates .20 microns in size or larger. In addition, these hoods are not loud like PTFE laminated hoods, which can adversely affect a firefighters ability to communicate effectively and maintain situational awareness.
Meets or Exceeds Industry Standards:
-UL Classified to meet or exceed the current hood requirements of NFPA 1971, Standard on Protective Ensemble for Structural Firefighting
-UL Certified to the NFPA 1971, 2018 Edition Option for Particulate Protection
Your fire hood is an investment in your health and safety — go for the gold, BarriAire™ Gold Hoods only from PGI!
The Industrial Scientific Tango TX1 Single Gas CO Meter has continued to thrive in the region throughout 2017 with more and more first responders concerned about CO related incidents. Most recently the Rockland County Emergency Medical Services has taken delivery of more than 100 Tango Single Gas CO Meters. The meters will be distributed among first responders providing front-line emergency medical care to the people of Rockland County.
The CO meters will warn first responding EMTs and paramedics of the potential presence of carbon monoxide. This information will allow first responders to better care for individuals who may be ill as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning, while also protecting themselves from a potential dangerous situation.
The Tango TX1 is the first ever single gas monitor that uses two sensors to detect the same gas. The patent pending DualSense™ Technology makes users of the TX1 up to 85 times safer than single sensor meters. For details on availability and pricing on the Tango TX1 please contact the AAA Emergency main office or your local sales representative.
