onduty4in1toolEvery responder knows that finding out you don’t have the right tool for the job in the middle of an emergency can ruin your day. Stay prepared at all times with the On Duty 4 in 1 Emergency Tool. This lightweight, heavy duty multi-purpose tool can perform four important functions during an emergency. The special patented design allows you to shut off gas valves with maximum leverage and minimal effort. With its special slotted handle, it can handle larger commercial gas valves as well.  The 4 in 1 Emergency Tool shuts off water valves too. Its special design fits on most water meter shut off valves, allowing you to shut off water from the street.

Two other features include a pry bar for maximum leverage to open doors and a built in rubbish claw to quickly dig through debris.  The 4 in 1 Emergency Tool is made with high quality materials to ensure reliability and safety. Made in the USA, it is heat treated, will not rust or spark, and weighs less than 1 pound.

In an emergency, removing victims from the area requires the proper equipment. The Foldable Stretcher & Splint Kit from Armor Products packs easily in a backpack. It unfolds to 40”x70” and includes two waterproof splints. The placement of the splints provides support and protection to the head end of the stretcher. It comes in a 15”x20” mesh storage bag and has a capacity of 600 pounds.

Rescue and recovery operations are easier with Armor Bags’ Victim Recovery Bag. These heavy duty vinyl coated mesh bags securely transports a victim or standard poly body bag. Ideal for use during water rescue operations, they come with a full length non-corrosive zipper, 10 handles for ease in transport, and a 700 pound capacity. These bags are in perfect for both human and animal rescue and recovery.

When you need emergency lighting, SnapLight Emergency Light Sticks by Cyalume are the perfect answer. Ideal for your emergency bags, CERT Teams, rescue operations, and as standard emergency equipment for EMS and Law Enforcement, SnapLight Light Sticks are available in a multitude of colors. They come with operational times of up to 12 hours and lengths of 6 inches.

“Customers have commented on the usefulness of these Light Sticks”, says Debby Parker, Vice President of CMC Government Supply. “Most users report that the Cyalume products are much brighter than competitors and last longer. They aren’t just for government teams or organizations. Many people keep them in the trunk of their car, or throw some in their pack when camping or hiking. They can even be used to signal rescuers in an emergency.”

In addition, the Cyalume Ultra High Intensity Flare Alternative offers a high intensity, super bright orange SnapLight that lasts 30 minutes.  With an attached wire stand for easy placement, they are visible up to one mile, and they have superior performance in warm and cold conditions. Ideal for accident scenes, they can be used in wet or dry weather. They are available in boxes of 12.

CMC Government Supply Offers Cyalume Emergency SnapLights to Prepare for Severe Weather and Emergencies

CMC Government Supply wants to help families prepare for summer storms by stocking their emergency kits with updated supplies. With that goal in mind, CMC Government Supply is featuring SnapLight light sticks this week from Cyalume Technologies, based in Massachusetts.

“With hurricane season right around the corner, now is a great time to double-check emergency kits and replace old equipment,” says CMC Vice President Debby Parker. “It’s wise for families to keep emergency kits in their homes and vehicles and a source of light is a crucial part of those kits. Businesses can also be prepared with this economical and easy-to-store emergency light solution for the office.”

Unlike flashlights, which depend on batteries that go bad and bulbs that burn out, the 6-inch SnapLights don’t need to be maintained and give dependable light for up to 12 hours. High intensity lights with a 30-minute illumination time are also available. These American-made lights come individually wrapped in foil to keep out moisture and light and are available in six different colors.

SnapLight light sticks are safe for even children to use. Cyalume Technologies makes them with non-toxic chemicals and the lights don’t produce heat. Because of these unique features, they are the light of choice in many situations and environments.  SnapLights can be used near combustible gases and leaking fuels where other lights could spark a fire or explosion.

Cyalume Technologies SnapLights are on the GSA Advantage, so government offices and first responders can take advantage of the competitive pricing and stock up. Texas purchasers can use the state’s BuyBoard to buy these and several other items from CMC Government Supply.
