Safety Tip of the Week:

Week of May 20, 2019

When it comes to understanding body armor there can be confusion over which type of body armor protects against which type of ammunition.  Understanding the NIJ 0101.06 armor protection levels is clearly explained.  The term "Bullet Proof" is a widely used term that is inaccurate and paints a picture that it cannot be penetrated.  Any body armor has the potential to be penetrated.  There are various levels of protection that must be adhered to in the law enforcement world.  The (Justice Technology Information Center) JTIC Understanding NIJ 0101.06 Armor Protection Levels is a snapshot of the projectile threats and classification of body armor related to these threats.  Here is NIJ complete info on Body Armor

CO2 Fire Extinguishers

CO2 Fire Extinguishers are used for fires labeled Class B and C.  They will put out fires that start from materials such as flammable liquids, solvents, lacquers, oils, gasoline, grease, oil based paints, lacquers and energized electrical equipment.  This type of extinguisher is filled with carbon dioxide which is a non-flammable gas under extreme pressure.  It is also very cold so it actually “cools” the fire.  You might even see pieces of dry ice shooting out as it puts the fire out.   A CO2 will extinguish the fire by taking the oxygen away from it.   We carry Amerex and Badger Extinguishers.  They are perfect to use in most labs, flammable liquid storage areas, commercial kitchens, mechanical rooms and factories.   Once the fire is out- you will not find residue with a CO2!
