Looking for some awesome rescue and extrication gloves? Well, look no further! The popular HexArmor Gloves are on sale for 10% off right now with code HEXARMOR at checkout until 11/24/14 at 11:59pm EST. 


These gloves do not disappoint as is evidence by the reviews and great remarks they get from their wearers! Check out this review:

I've had many pairs over my 17 plus years on the job. I go through about one pair ever year to year and half so if you do the math that's a lot of pairs! I've had some from almost every company out there and these are by far the best ones I had yet. They fit very well and as I like, allow you to feel what you are touching and give you better control of your tools and protect your hands very well. I wouldn't think twice about getting another pair of these I like them that much. If you get a pair you'll feel the same way after you use them a few times. I just can't say enough about these. If you're thinking about a pair get them and try them for yourself you'll see the difference right from the get go.

Walk to End Alzheimer's Event

On Sunday, November 9th, Team Silver Fox walked in the Walk to End Alzheimer's in Philadelphia, PA. We walked in support of our father, grandfather, CEO, and friend, Jim Witmer.

With the help of friends, colleagues, other loved ones we raised close to $9,000 as a team and still have until the end of the year to collect funds.

Here are some photos of the events that day.

We are grateful to all our friends, fans, and family members who contributed to our walk. The fight is not over--but there is hope for tomorrow. If you feel led, consider donating to our team as Alzheimer's research is extremely underfunded, but very much needed.

If you want to stay up to date on what's happening in research and exactly where this money is going towards, follow along here. Good things are happening, but the funds are needed to do it.

The Hope for a Cure begins with You!

Thank you for supporting us.

Here comes the cold...here comes Chimney Fire Season. Get prepped!

In rolls winter time and the cold and the fire places start being used again.

Unfortunately, chimney fires are a real threat this time of year and we need to use caution as we use them. According to csia.org, there are an average of 25,100 chimney fires, responsible for about 30 deaths, and over 126.1 million dollars in property damage a year.

These are scary and real numbers!

It's important that you have your chimney cleaned and inspected on a regular basis to avoid dealing with this serious and harmful occurrence.

Here at TheFireStore we sell a Chimney Snuffer Kit that we believe every fire engine and apparatus should have ready and on hand to run up to the roof in the event of a chimney fire.

This little kit is an easy to use, one-man job, that's heavy enough to break through the birds nests and buildup in chimneys, and let's out just enough water to put out the fire but not case damage to the cement and chimney structure.

This short little video really helps to explain the snuffer kit best:



To grab one of these Chimney Snuffer Kits for your department, click here.

Another great product we have is the Chimfex Fire Suppressant. This is an amazing little product to keep on hand in the event of a chimney fire and to provide an immediate line of defense for controlling it.

This is a great tool that can be used at home, or just as a back-up or in-case-of-emergency event, to ease those worries!

Be sure to read all about it, see the directions and product details here.

Let's have a statistically safer winter---use caution, and be prepared when using your fireplace!

New Fire Cam 1080x720 Mini HD Fire Helmet Cam

This camera is designed specifically for interior firefighting conditions and can be worn directly on your helmet, so while being hands-free you can captures some awesome footage!

The Fire Cam 1080 is the best professional High Definition Fire Helmet Camera that Fire Cam has ever designed. It's also one of the smallest helmet cameras in the entire world! This is something to brag about.

This camera was built by firefighters, so you can trust that they thought of everything! The camera is made from a heat resistant, anodized aluminum that has a heat resistant glass lens that's built specifically for interior firefighting conditions. I mean, this camera can take on temps upwards of 900F for short periods of times---this is NO joke!We do, however, not recommend this for concrete training towers or flashover chambers where it could sustain high temps for long periods of times.

This camera even comes with the BlackJack helmet mount. It will come with a water resistant sound cap (for audio) and a waterproof cap capable of going underwater up to 33 feet!

Don't worry, FireCam spares no expenses when it comes to other accessories that come along! There will be 2 spare rechargeable batteries, a USB cable, and a battery charger. When you're shooting in 1080p you'll have crystal clear HD video shot--and when selecting 720p it lets you shoot at 60fps for some AMAZING slow motion shots!

Pair this with a Class 6 or Class 10 Micro SDHC card for the smoothest video.

#EBTT -Tempest Pathmaster

We're back with another #EBTT entry--where Al told us that he thought the Tempest Technology Pathmaster Rapid Deployment Flow Path Barrier was the coolest product we've got. So maybe you don't know much about this product with a super long name? Well don't worry--we'll fill you in on all the details today.




The point of the Rapid Deployment Flow Path Barrier is to give you the ability to control air movement, therefore controlling the fire. It gives any Fire Department the ability to rapidly deploy barriers aiding in directive fire movement, growth and behavior, which anyone will tell you is worth it's weight in gold!

The Tempest Pathmaster is made from a fire resistant, lightweight materials that makes it easy for any firefighter to do just that.

This valuable tool has a few uses.

1. To control/reduce smoke and movement/damage
2. Redirect interior flow paths
3. Reduce doorway size to increase PPV performance

Let's go into detail, shall we?

Controlling Smoke Movement & Damage:
The Pathmaster creates a temporary blockade, because fire smoke is super heated and travels through the upper portion of any doorway/ventilation point and then quickly spreads. With the Pathmaster, it almost entirely eliminates smoke movement between rooms/buildings which helps prevent more smoke damage or risk.

Redirect Interior Flow Paths
With the Pathmaster it allows a firefighter to easily open and close flow paths, since fire behavior is becoming increasingly apparently. This way, it puts the control of the fire in the department's hands.

Amplify PPV-Increase Pressure
Another use for the Pathmaster can be to reduce doorway size, in doing so a firefighter is able to place a PPV fan even closer to the ventilation point while being able to create the necessary seal.



The product is available in 2 widths, 28"-46" and 26"-59".
