Fire Rescue Armor Vest (Station Blue)
This is our NEW Station Blues Armor Rig designed to match the station blue uniforms worn by all fire personnel. It is designed in response to the challenging efforts of keeping ALL Emergency Services safe and provide a level of protection the same as our Law Enforcement WITHOUT having to mimic the look of Law Enforcement or a SWAT/Tactical Team. This rig is designed to distinguish between a Police response and a Fire/Rescue Response. Although both need the protection level on Active Shooter scenes, they have much different responsibilities and functions be it assigned to an outside perimeter awaiting an all clear or inside a hotzone with Law Enforcement actively treating victims. The typical armor response gear being worn by Firefighters, Paramedics and EMS typically mimic a Law Enforcement Officer. Now with the OSS Fire/Rescue Station Blues Armor vest, Firefighter and EMS can remain as being seen as a medical response and "NOT", SEEN AS UNARMED LAW ENFORCEMENT.
The Rig itself is a Full Coverage Carrier w/ Cumberbun system that can accomodate 6x6 or 6x9 side armor plates. It is a very comfortable and supportive carrier with molle system on entire front and rear for any attachments you may need. It comes with a Radio Pouch and shoulder pads. It has quick 2" snap shakle buckels on the shoulders for a Rapid Removale if needed. It is completely adjustable to fit most sizes that range from S - XL. It comes with our OSS Level IV, NIJ 0101.06 Advanced Lightweight armor plate ( only 5.5lbs - lightest available to date) that is comprised of the most advanced ballistic ingredients on the market (patented). These armor plates are a stand alone, multi hit, 10x12 SAPI/ESAPI multi curve plate to provide a level of comfort along with the peace of mind knowing you have the strongest plate to date and only is 5.5lbs. It is comprised of Ceramic Blends to provide the ultimate strength at a lighter weight than any other plates available today and still affords Armor Piercing Protection.
