“The Lower St Croix Valley Fire Department in Lakeland, Minnesota, was fortunate to have discovered the Stat-X First Responder® at a recent trade show and after some discussion purchased a set to carry in our first response duty vehicle. At a recent room and contents fire, the device was deployed and successfully suppressed the fire until first responding fire personnel were able to extinguish by traditional means. The Stat-X First Responder successfully slowed that fire down and turned a rural bedroom fire that would have taken 100’s of personnel hours into a one-hour event. It not only saved money in the way of personnel and potential property loss, but also created a much safer work environment for our department.
The Stat-X First Responder turned a non-firefighting vehicle (Chevy Tahoe duty vehicle) into a vehicle capable of actually doing something pulling up to a fire prior to hose lines being deployed by engine companies. The Stat-X First Responder has become another valuable tool in our tool box!”
