Hello Everyone!

Recently we attended the IPSA or International Public Safety Association annual conference in Washington DC last month and it was an amazing experience!

Most attendees were first responders (Police, EMT, Firefighters) and there were many seminars conducted that outlined best practices for traumatic scenarios.

Here is some quick info on the IPSA Group:

  • Established in July 2014 in the State of Arizona
  • Non-profit public safety association – represents all public safety verticals:
    • law enforcement
    • Fire service
    • EMS
    • Public works
    • Public health
    • Hospitals
    • Security
    • Emergency management
  • The Mission is to break down the cultural barriers and foster the relationships between EMS, fire, law enforcement, telecommunicators, allied emergency responders, and the communities they serve.

This event brought people from all over the globe to include visitors from the USA, Europe, Asia, and South America. It was wonderful to hear about the different tools and tactics used in the industry around the world.

Our table was getting a lot of attention as we debuted our Ballistic T-Shirt to the attendees. Everyone was very excited to see this product because it is strong enough to stop a .44 mag bullet but also very thin and lightweight, so much so that no one can tell you are wearing body armor.

Take a look at this product below:

PROTEC-X COMBAT DANGEROUS THREATS COMFORTABLY

The PROTEC-X anti-riot suit was developed by EDI in 2016 to help police officers combat some of the most dangerous threats of unrest in the United States. As of 2017, EDI began exporting this anti-riot claim to Latin America in order to support police officers in their crowd control operations. Since EDI began exporting this anti-riot suit in 2017, it is now present in more than six (6) countries in Latin America and continues to help police officers in their operations.

Why do police officers like to wear the EDI PROTEC-X anti-riot suit?

  • Flame retardant fabric: The suit is designed with fireproof fabric to protect the user from fire threats.
  • This includes Molotov cocktails when they are thrown at police officers wearing the suit.

How do users feel while wearing the PROTEC-X suit?

  • Lightweight design: the suit is extremely lightweight and allows users to move with ease, while protecting the user.
  • The suit includes a durable hard protection around the entire body, including hard stab-resistant plates in the front and back.
  • Poorly made suits often do not balance well and do not cover the body well. With the EDI PROTEC-X suit, users will wear the suit instead of looking like the suit is “wearing” the user!

What is the end result of protecting yourself with an EDI anti-riot suit?

  • Stab-resistant NIJ II 0115 compliant plates: two (2) hard anti-stab plates to protect the user at the front and back of the suit.
  • The plates have been tested at the HP White Laboratory in the USA, and they have been tested to resist to threats up to NIJ II 0115.

It is very important that users know what to wear to stay safe in such unstable conditions. The right riot suit can make the difference between a successful mission and a great uncertainty.
