NEW PGI Hoods for all!

There are two, great, new PGI hoods available that we want to tell you about. First up--meet the PGI Cobra Elite SureFit Hood. It's a lightweight, breathable hood that offers exceptional flame and heat resistance. It's got the highest arc rating, ounce per ounce of ANY hood on the market. Beat that. 


Made of the Para-Tek...this is PGI's proprietary Tri-Blend that has the benefits of three fibers: High Strength Para-Aramid, Lenzing FR, and High Tenacity Nylon. Those materials blended together results in an awesome and breathable, while still being lightweight, hood that offers exceptional flame and heat resistance.

Some of the other great Para-Tek properties include flame resistance, low thermal shrinkages, NFPA compliant, resistance to welding sparks and splatter, exceptional wear life, great value, super comfortable, and lightweight!

This hood, available in grey or black can be yours! Be sure to check out the more nitty gritty details of the design, construction, fit, etc on our website here.



Now...check out the PGI Cobra Ultimate Nomex Hood.



This hood is known for it's inherent flame resistance since it's made from Nomex, the fabric of choice for protective apparel for over 40 years! 

Nomex is a meta-aramid fiber developed in 1961 by DuPond and first marketed in 1967. It has outstanding strength and abrasion resistance. Hoods made from this fiber have an exceptional wear life which makes them cost effective in the long run!

Nomex also has superb flash fire protection, excellent chemical resistance, it's easy to care for, mid-weight, has a nice off-white, natural kinda coloring, meets CAL-OSHA requirements, and is inherently flam resistant. 

Whichever NEW PGI hood you choose, you can't go wrong, really. Just check out and read the details on both the PGI Cobra Elite, and the PGI Cobra Ultimate, then enjoy many years of good use!

NEW: Meret Recover Pro O2 Response Bag


We love the New Meret Recover Pro O2 Response Bag--it's built for the professional and to help you rapidly and proficiently deploy emergency oxygen during critical moments. This bag could be life-saving! It's built from strong materials and has a smart design that allows versatility in your organization design. 

Similar to the old OMNI Pro, the Recover Pro is that foundation for a system of TS2-ready bags that are interchangeable and also allowing you to attach additional TS2-ready modules to the bag's sides. You can use the EZ-Grab pull bars to quickly open the bag to reveal your M9, D or Jumbo D aluminum oxygen cylinder.

The internal dual full length mesh pockets can accommodate masks and tubing, while the side panels can support a TS2 ready Deep Stuff pocket or two Stick-It strips. The dual outer zippered pockets offer that additional storage for smaller items.

The Recover Pro bag has a hideaway, mountaineering style backpack harness that provides that snug and secure fit. You can walk, run, climb or ascend in it and this backpack system will keep it close to your body and comfortable, including full padded lumbar support. It can all be hidden away in the zippered pocket in the back of the bag.

  • Oversized custom Meret zippers
  • Matte chrome metal hardware
  • Double stitching on all stress points

10% Off HexArmor Gloves-Act Fast!

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!
