Meet the X-Tinguish®  X-Treme

Vernon Hills, IL, USA -- In, Fire As A Weapon In Terrorist Attacks, author Joseph W. Pfeifer states that “the use of fire for criminal, gang, and terrorist activities, as well as targeting first responders, is not new.” 

We no longer operate in a world where fires are the fire department's problem and violent actors are the police department's problem. Instead, the nature of today's threats – and particularly the terrorist threat – dictates that public safety professionals must cooperate, train and work together to ensure public safety. Police and fire professionals must leverage their unique strengths and capabilities to work in a coordinated fashion to maximize their effectiveness. To do this, it's helpful to understand the kinds of operations that would require a joint police-fire response. Here are the ABCs of fire as a weapon. Each of the categories has its own special threats, considerations and requirements for law enforcement and fire personnel. 

A – Ambush

In an ambush, fire is used as a weapon to attack unwitting victims, or as bait to lure responders into an area where they will be attacked with other weapons.

B – Barricade

In barricade scenarios, fire is used by an attacker who is holding hostages or who is launching an attack from within, such as a sniper firing from within a burning structure.

C – Civil unrest

-fire is used by attackers to destroy property, harm innocents, attack public safety officials and mask criminal activity. Fire , in this scenario,incites frenzy, so it must be extinguished quickly before it encourages further violence and unrest.

CCA – Complex, coordinated attack

-fire is used as part of a symphonic attack, where multiple locations are hit simultaneously, or in close succession, to overwhelm the ability of defenders to respond rapidly and efficiently.

Having a hand-tool in the field that can literally be deployed on scene by any personnel present to stop the propogation of fire utilized as a weapon is a game changer. As fast as the attackers can start a fire the unit can be deployed to alleviate the fire and its intended damage. This tool is the X-Tinguish®  X-Treme, 'WHEN SECONDS COUNT, “PULL THE PIN AND THROW IT IN”

Weighing slightly less than 14lbs.,The X-Tinguish®  X-Treme is a tool for every toolbox.
