FotoLum Reflective & Photo Luminescent Vinyl Fire Service Products Provide Improved Safety for First Responders

Fire Fighters are a special breed apart. When everyone is running out of a burning building to save their own lives, fire fighters run in, risking theirs to save others. The lethal dangers inherent in dark, smoky spaces are many. Teamwork is critical for survival and success. A key component in teamwork is knowing where everyone is located.

FotoLum – a leading manufacturer of propriety high-grade photo luminescent vinyl combined with 3M light reflective overlay and 3M double backed adhesive designed for fire applications – has already proven that its products save lives. FotoLum photo luminescent and reflective helmet patches, crescents, equipment and SCBA strips perform at such a high level, fire departments using them attest to their effectiveness. 3M’s quality adhesive eliminates edge-curling on the patches.

Here’s what one fire fighter had to say:
“I have been using the new helmet decals you gave us for a while now. I have had a chance to observe them at 2 fires that we had. In a dark smoke filled apartment fire we had, they were the only thing visible on the firefighters beside me. I have been impressed with their visibility and would recommend them to anyone interested in wearing them.”

FotoLum™ fire service products take safety to the next level by illuminating for hours. By applying the products to uniforms and equipment, entry team members can maintain visual contact in low light and dark, smoky conditions without depending upon a flashlight.
