Honeywell Introduces Four First Responder Products, Co-hosts Scholarship Program For 20 Firefighters At FDIC

DAYTON, OH (April 17, 2016)Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced the launch of four products for first responders and is co-sponsoring a scholarship program for first responders at the Fire Department Instructor’s Conference (FDIC) April 18-23 in Indianapolis. An expanded portfolio of first responder products and firefighter training support are part of the company’s commitment to providing long-term, innovative solutions to the firefighting industry.

“The firefighting industry knows Honeywell for our leadership in fire detection and control systems, and for our popular personal protective equipment such as Morning Pride TAILS turnout gear; but now, we hope they will come to know us more as a complete head-to-toe supplier of personal protective equipment,” said Ken Schmidt, president of Honeywell First Responder.  “Our aim is to improve safety, efficiency and productivity on the fireground through a new generation of smart, simple-to-use cyber-industrial solutions.”

At FDIC, Honeywell First Responder is introducing:

•    TITAN, an intelligent self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) that combines high-performance Honeywell materials, proprietary electronics, wireless communications and unique ergonomic features to offer firefighters a greater degree of maneuverability, safety and efficiency on the fireground.

•    Morning Pride TAILS, the company’s flagship turnout gear used by more than 50 percent of North America’s top 20 municipal fire departments, which has been reengineered using proprietary Honeywell patterning design to include several ergonomic and safety refinements providing a better fit and allow more range of motion and protection.

•    FIRST, a cloud hosted software solution that manages and tracks a fire department’s inventory of personal protective equipment through automation and simplified barcode scanning, enabling fire departments to simplify NFPA 1851 compliance, records-keeping and PPE program management.

•    NightHawk, a firefighter boot that builds on the legacy Pro Warrington line, redesigned with new materials and ergonomic features resulting in greater athletic fit, performance, comfort and protection.

In addition, Honeywell is co-sponsoring a scholarship program that awards 20 firefighters with expenses-paid trips to the industry’s major training and educational event for first responders. The scholarship awards accomplished firefighters who also have demonstrated an intense desire for education and training.

“The annual scholarship program helps furthers the professional development of 20 exemplary firefighters who will benefit their communities greatly by applying the knowledge they acquire from their training at FDIC,” said Schmidt.
