How Pelican Products Help During Forest Fires
It’s been a hot, dry summer for much of the US. Due to that, states like Colorado, New Mexico and South Dakota have been battling raging forest fires. In June, USNews reported that 600 firefighters, 30 aircraft and 40 fire engines engaged to fight a blaze near Fort Collins—the third-largest fire in the state’s history.
While most of these fires remain in the forests, they put acres of land, hundreds of firefightershomeowners and property at risk. We’re proud to provide products that can help with fighting fires or evacuating victims from harm’s way.
Firefighters put their life at risk when they respond to these forest fires with lots of gear in need of protection. Our Pelican and Pelican-Storm Cases are NATO codified and tested to military standards. These watertight and crush-proof cases protect firefighters’ gear from the unpredictable elements a forest fire produces.
Similarly, the 3715PL LED Flashlight was designed with firefighters in mind. The unbreakable ABS body resists chemicals, water, and corrosion and produces a next-generation, LED beam strong enough to cut through thick smoke and dust. It also features downcast LEDs to light a path through dark smoky conditions and a photo-luminescent shroud, which gathers ambient light and shines in the dark after the lights go out, so it can be found in the darkest conditions. Our self-contained rechargeable remote LED area lighting offers quick and powerful light that will go where generator-powered lights can’t
People forced to leave their homes due to forest fires need to do so quickly and easily by packing their belongings in one of more than 285 different sizes of Pelican™ cases. Additionally as more and more of our important documents, photos and files are in digital format, Pelican also offers a wide range of dedicated micro, tablet and laptop cases that will keep smaller electronic devices safe from even the roughest conditions.
We hope you’ll never experience a forest fire and encourage you to donate to help those who are currently affected.
