EMS World Top Innovation Award Submission
After Safe Life Defense won the 2017 EMS Innovation Award for our Level iiia+ First Response Vest, we knew that creating great armor for EMS was more important than ever. It is our company mission to protect as many people as possible – and we believe that EMS everywhere can utilize body armor while performing their job to stay safe. EMS professionals contact us daily to say how thankful they are that a company finally made a vest specifically for their profession.
And now, using their feedback as inspiration, Safe Life Defense President Nick Groat developed a new tactical vest for EMS that is completely customizable. It is called The Tactical Level iiia+ Enhanced Multi-Threat Vest. It comes with all the protection of our original Level iiia Multi-Threat vest (bullet, strike, and slash protection), but is enhanced to provide NIJ level 1 spike protection and to defend against armor piercing ammunition. Besides its unheard-of protection, it is extremely comfortable, made for daily wear, and designed to never hinder a person’s range of movement. And now – this is the part that EMS kept asking for – our new Tactical Vest offers full customization.
When EMS professionals need to go into a high threat situation to save lives, they undeniably have important gear they need to carry. Tourniquets, radios, flashlights – the list goes on and on. Our new tactical vests allow them to carry everything they need and have a standard that is completely customizable to a specific EMS team or mission. By using the laser cut molle webbing on our new Tactical Vest, they can use any pouch, any size, so that their gear fits perfectly. And with our customizable patches, EMS is easily identified and distinguishable from Law Enforcement.
Our Tactical Vest allows EMS to know where their equipment is reliably and easily. All soft ballistic vests have a 5-year lifespan, so if your entire team gets a new radio, you can just get a new pocket for the vest. As any EMS veteran knows, adaptability is key to functionality and safety. Safe Life Defense has always offered adaptable protection levels (you can add rifle plates to any of our vests at a moment’s notice) but now our tactical carrier is equally adaptable for different accessories. No matter what changes in the unpredictable EMS field, the NEW Safe Life Defense Tactical Level iiia+ Enhanced Multi-Threat Vest will cover EMS professionals and adapt to the unique challenges they face.
