FireSyte real-time monitoring services help ensure vehicles carrying first responders are prepared 24/7. FireSyte features automated instant alerts and reporting for public safety vehicles including tire pressure monitoring and GPS tracking to enhance safety as well as simplify maintenance and lower service costs. FireSyte tire pressure monitoring automatically collects and reports tire pressure data from apparatus while they are located in the fire station. Low-pressure alerts and fleet tire pressure reports are automatically sent via text or e-mail to a responsible party in the department. FireSyte maintenance monitoring can remotely retrieve and read J1939 and OBDII onboard diagnostics of fire apparatus. Subsequently, that information is relayed to a responsible party so that any problem area can be addressed before any emergency call is received. FireSyte Monitors with a GPS tracking option will automatically record and track the route taken by fire apparatus. When the units return to the station, tracking data are uploaded and can be used to provide needed information to complete a NFIRS report. FireSyte technology provides verifiable proof of response and arrival time to an incident, plotted over a satellite image, with the ability to track the response route and distance. FireSyte developed and submitted patents for a seat belt monitor that verifies firefighters are properly wearing seat belts when the apparatus is in motion.

Pelican ProGear™ 2380 LED flashlight weighs 6.6 ounces with batteries and can change from spot beam to flood beam in a matter of seconds. Using patented Fraen dual reflector optics and Slide-Beam technology, the flashlight is a compact lighting solution that offers three modes: high (159 lumens), low (23 lumens), and momentary. The 2380 LED is powered by two AA batteries (included) and shines a bright, crisp beam for three hours and 15 minutes (high mode). To easily determine battery level, six tail cap clicks set the flashlight in indication mode. It will then signal one to four blinks (four blinks equals 80 to 100 percent), specifying battery level. Its Type II hard annodized aluminum construction makes it durable, and the antislip knurled pattern allows for all-weather usage.
