Phalanx Defense Systems to Focus on Fire/EMS Designs

Gainesville, FL — The number of Fire/EMS Agencies being sent into warm zones has increased in the last few years, but the number of companies making body armor specifically for these first responders has not. Phalanx Defense Systems has been focused on Fire/EMS armor systems for the last 7 years, and continues to lead the charge to gearing up departments for the safety of first responders.

James Coats, CEO of Phalanx Defense Systems, said, “We understand that the needs of our Fire, EMS and Paramedic first responders are very different from those of law enforcement. With many agencies just considering or purchasing armor for the first time, they are seeking advice from their police counterparts.

The LE experience with armor is long-standing and invaluable, but it doesn’t take into account the special needs of the Fire/EMS use case. We want to protect our first responders and give them the solutions to prevent them from stepping on the scene in hand-me-down or repurposed body armor that may hamper them on the job, rather than help them.”

On the market now are Phalanx’s Tactical Responder carriers. The Tactical Responder MKII was specifically developed for tactical paramedics in active shooter and mass casualty incidents with plenty of MOLLE real estate to carry lifesaving equipment. The Tactical Responder MKV is designed to mimic the look of bunker gear and does not use MOLLE so that departments can appear less geared up on routine calls, while still being fully protected.
