Press Release

               

                Ft. Myers, Florida, March 4, 2015- Survival Armor Special Project Director Gary Hughes is pleased to announce two new additions to our Survivors Club. The Survivors Club is made up of our public safety partners who have been protected from serious or life threatening injury and death by wearing or using Survival Armor products. We ask that all officers remember that their Survival Armor body armor is capable of saving them from more than just gunfire, as illustrated below.

 

 

-Fort Collins CO

A Fort Collins Colorado Police Department officer was responding to a suspicious person call when he encountered an intoxicated suspect at the top of a stairwell. The suspect presented a .38 special revolver and fired, striking the officer in the upper right shoulder tab of his Survival Armor ballistic vest, less than 1” from the edge of the panel. The officer was able to return fire, killing the suspect. The bullet was stopped on the very front of the officer’s Survival Armor ballistic vest, preventing serious life threatening injury to the officer.

 

 

-Cedar Hill TX

A Cedar Hill Police Department officer, Ann McSwain, was attempting to arrest a violent offender who managed to light her and two other detectives on fire. While the two detectives suffered minor burns, Officer McSwain suffered 3rd degree burns over roughly 20% of her body. Her uniform shirt and trousers were burned away, but her Survival Armor ballistic vest, in her words, “protected me perfectly and I suffered no burns whatsoever on my torso”. Officer McSwain is on the road to recovery and looking forward to returning to work.

 

 

Both officers will receive replacement Survival Armor ballistic vests at no cost to themselves or their agencies. If you have a story about how your Survival Armor protected yourself or others please share it with us at:  garyhughes@survivalarmor.com

Press release 9-2-2014

 

Survival Armor® is pleased to announce its patent pending integrated medical kit for concealable body armor.  The integrated medical kit is available as a retrofit kit for all Survival Armor concealable body armor products. It is also available to order built in to your concealable carrier.  The Integrated Medical Kit is an integration of an armor system with medical items used to treat penetrating trauma and control life threatening bleeding. "A primary goal for this integration was to enable individual officers to have the life saving medical items available for immediate use, a kit capable of saving the officer’s life or the lives of others" says Gary Hughes, Director of Special projects. The contents of the kit have been specially chosen for their size, wearability, usefulness and versatility based on TCCC / Combat Lifesaver Guidelines. The kit's small size and unique deployment "ripcord" means officers can have this life saving equipment on their person at all times while working. "The kit is barely noticeable when integrated into the armor system and available when it is needed. A med kit in your trunk does no good when you or someone else is bleeding out inside a building or away from your vehicle" Hughes continued. "You wouldn't dream of going on a call without your firearm, radio or body armor, and now that can include life saving medical items."

 

 

Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Kurt Osborne, states “The Integrated Medical Kit for Concealable Body Armor is just another example of  how we at Survival Armor are continually looking for ways to help protect America's Law Enforcement Officers, It’s all about Survival!"
