PRODUC T REVIEWS FROM STREET CREWS
Versatile, Variable Lighting
Paramedics and EMTs like tools that can do many different jobs,
because we never know what we’re going to see on scene. Will
you need a spotlight to help
search an area, a floodlight
to illuminate an entire room,
or a clip light that can direct
light exactly where you need
it? The versatile Pelican
3410M Right Angle Light can
do all three, allowing you to
switch between spot, floor
or both beams, and you can
adjust the output for high,
medium and low settings
with a single push-button
switch. Its glow-in-the-dark body makes it very easy to find
during a power failure, and its magnetic clip makes it easy to
attach to clothing, a belt or any metal surface.

Personal Light Bar
Even with the introduction of ANSI-compliant reflective vests, we still have a high risk of being injured
while operating on the roadway. One way to increase our visibility is to add personal lighting to our
ensemble. As its name suggests, the new 100 Series from Guardian Angel sits on your shoulder to
make sure you can be seen—and keep you safe. Boasting 18 LED lights,
available in a variety of colors and switchable from flash to steady, you can
both ensure visibility while moving and also illuminate your work scene.
Easy-to-use controls allow you to change between flashing emergency
mode or a steady front light with flashing rear lights for a scene operations
mode. A brightness switch lets you shift between brightness levels for
extended run times of 4–65 hours.
