  • Safety from Personal Assault

    Air-HornYou know, it isn't just kids who are frightened of the dark.

    Most adults are reluctant to admit it, but deep down inside a lot of us truly are as afraid of the dark now as we were when we were very young.

    Our fears might have shifted from monsters in the closet or under the bed to monsters outside our doorway, but the worry is extremely genuine.

    Pepper Spray with Key Ring PouchIf out at night, walk with others, stay away from poorly lit areas and carry protection.

    Our suggestions include; a whistle or air horn to signal help (and possibly scare an attacker away) and pepper spray (non-lethal but very effective!) - and of course, don't go out near or after dark without a flashlight or glowstick!

    Pepper spray enables you to defend yourself while keeping a safe distance from an attacker. A one second burst to the face will cause temporary blindness, choking, coughing, and nausea-bringing the attacker to his knees. The active ingredient in our spray is Oleoresin Capsicum (O.C.), commonly referred to as red pepper. When considering which pepper spray is most effective, one must consider the percentage of pepper being used and the heat rating of that pepper (measured in Scoville Heat Units or S.H.U.). All of our pepper sprays are two million S.H.U., which is the highest available. At 17% and two million S.H.U., our Street Wise pepper spray is the hottest, most powerful in the world. The potency of this spray enables it to bring down even the most aggressive assailants.

  • TB continues to spread.

    While World TB Day was just a few days ago, awareness and efforts to end the Spread of Tuberculosis need to  continue year round. According to the CDC, after twenty years of annual declines in reported tuberculosis (TB) cases, progress toward TB elimination in the United States appears to have stalled.

    Understand that TB is not blatantly obvious - not everyone infected with TB bacteria is sick; millions of US residents have latent TB infection and could become sick with TB disease at some point in their lives.

    The CDC and others work hard to provide resources for providers, patients, and to  offer TB programs that can strengthen efforts to diagnose, treat, and ultimately eliminate TB disease and latent TB infections.

    Resources for TB Programs

    Protect yourself against the risk of Tuberculosis exposure. Our safety booklets, CD-ROMS, DVD programs, and compliance kits will provide you and your employees with all the information you need regarding prevention of Tuberculosis. Following OSHA standards, you can rest assured that you are compliant within your industry. There is even a poster available to serve as a daily reference.

  • Drought

    So often we think about emergency preparedness and disaster as sudden, cataclysmic events, but they aren't always so.

    The California Drought (well really the entire western US) spells disaster for the whole nation - and in fact is already and will continue to have global impact.

    The western US States, and particularly California a vital to  the food supply of the nation and the planet. California is the world’s 5th largest supplier of food, cotton fiber and other agricultural commodities in the world. This current drought has forced California farmers and ranchers have been forced to cut back the amount of water they use drastically.

    This is not going away. A new Department of the Interior report released Tuesday shows that water supplies across the West are at an increased risk because of climate change.

    Projections by the U.S. government say stream flow could decrease across the Colorado and Rio Grande river basins by as much as 27 percent over the next century - this is where the majority of non-snowmelt water in the West comes from.

TB is not just another global statistic it equals lives at threat. It is humanity’s problem to solve. For our children. For our future. For all of us. We deserve to be free of this disease. Let’s End TB.TB-Day

    World TB Day, falling on March 24th each year, is designed to build public awareness that tuberculosis today remains an epidemic in much of the world, causing the deaths of nearly one-and-a-half million people each year, mostly in developing countries. It commemorates the day in 1882 when Dr Robert Koch astounded the scientific community by announcing that he had discovered the cause of tuberculosis, the TB bacillus. At the time of Koch's announcement in Berlin, TB was raging through Europe and the Americas, causing the death of one out of every seven people. Koch's discovery opened the way towards diagnosing and curing TB.

    The Red Arrow is a symbol for our goal: a world without TB. It represents our unwavering commitment to move forward with this mission until we reach the finish line. Because despite its devastating impact as the world’s leading infectious killer, there is still the troubling fact that most people in the world think of TB as a disease of the past.

    The Red Arrow was developed with the input of thousands of partners in the TB community. The symbol belongs to no single organization, person, tagline, or agenda. It represents our unity against TB, and it’s in your hands to shape, mold, and give meaning to.
