We want to provide our customers with the most cost effective, quality lighting solutions on the market. We think HiViz LEDs FireTech Lighting Solutions are an excellent addition to our offerings." Drake Earnest, Sales Manager for Mid-South Emergency

HiViz LEDs has expanded its Southeast presence with the addition of Mid-South Emergency Equipment in Murfreesboro, TN. Mid-South’s legacy reaches back to a successful history with other fleet and vehicle equipment, notably with Thomas Bus, the nation’s second largest bus manufacturer. Located just a few miles from the geographic center of Tennessee, Mid-South Emergency Equipment has quickly become a rapidly growing distributor of E-One fire apparatus, having more than doubled the sales of E-One apparatus in Tennessee during their first year. In addition to E-One apparatus and HiViz LEDs FireTech Lighting Solutions, Mid-South Emergency Equipment provides a complete line of turn out gear and loose equipment , multiple safety lines from MSA Safety, and hydraulic tooks from ReqTec.
Mid-South Emergency Equipment recently held an open house for its customer at their expansive facility in Murfreesboro. HiViz LED’s was pleased to attend and demonstrate their full line of lighting solutions. “Our customers were glad to see the lighting solution alternatives from HiViz LEDs”, says Ken Ezel of Mid-South. “I have several customers who have already spec’ed in the FireTech low profile brow light as their preferred solution on their next truck.”

HiViz LEDs introduced the first low profile, life time warranty, family of brow lights at the recent South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo in Raleigh (SAFRE) and drew quite a bit of excitement at that show. “We offer a full range of apparatus and loose equipment lighting solutions ranging from split circuit, low profile brow lights to flexible power push up and tripod lighting that operates on both AC and DC power” offers Sam Massa, owner and President of HiViz LEDs Lighting Solutions. “Being a firefighter and EMT first responder myself, I ensure that all of HIViz LEDs FireTech products are uniquely fitted to address the needs of those on the fire ground or at the scene of an emergency.”

"Like other E-One Distributors who have chosen to represent HiViz LED FireTech Lighting Solutions, we want to provide our customers with the highest quality fire apparatus and most cost effect loose equipment and quality lighting solutions available on the market.” Says Drake Earnest, Sales Manager for Mid-South Emergency Equipment. “We think HiViz LEDs FireTech Lighting Solutions are an excellent addition to our offerings."

“We are committed to the fire apparatus distributors as our resellers because we know they have formed trusted relationships with the fire departments.” Massa of HiViz LEDs adds, “We not only want to provide expertise to our resellers, we also train them so that they become the front line of experts for their customers. Mid-South Emergency Equipment has proven they can be the front line expert and they have the people, shop resources, and geographic presence to provide quality solutions to their customers. We’re glad to have HiViz LED Lighting Solutions be part of their offering.”

“LED lighting is the next wave of lighting technology. I believe we are working with a lighting industry leader whose primary focus is to provide unique lighting solutions for the fire market.” Adds Ken Ezel of Mid-South Emergency. “It’s really pretty simple. They have innovative solutions like the low profile designs. They offer a great warranty. It’s just a good value product for our customers.”

HiViz LEDs lighting solutions for the emergency, fire, rescue market include the FireTech low profile Brow Light, FireTech scene lights, apparatus work lights, self contained Emergency Response Kits, compartment lights, and handheld lighting solutions.

HiViz LEDs FireTech solutions include several patented and trademarked technologies. Sam Massa explains, “Three things make HiViz LED FireTech lighting solutions superior to our competition. First, the ‘pulse width modulation technology’ which maximizes the light output to nearly 90% of the LED lumens rating. Our competition can typically only drive their LEDs to between 60% and 70% of their stated lumens rating. That’s why our lights are so bright.” Massa continues, “Second are our ‘split optics technology’. For example in the low profile brow light, we give the Fire Department three lights in one brow light by providing spot, scene and flood patterns each controlled on a separate circuit.” Massa makes his last point, “Finally, the HiViz unique offering of FlexPower™ allows our LED scene lights to be operated on AC or DC on the trucks. They can then be removed from the trucks and placed near any hard-to-access scene using only battery power. This provides flexibility for the first responders and, particularly for a vehicle accident or fire investigation, a quiet emergency scene without the need for generators on fire trucks to operate lights. This also often frees up the fire apparatus to be available for other calls fighting fire rather than shining lights.”

LifeTime Warranty: FireTech lighting solutions come with the only emergency, fire and rescue industry’s lifetime warranty for a lighting solution. James Christopher, responsible for FireTech Reseller Development, tells us, “This is a straight forward repair or replacement warranty for the life time that a reseller’s customer owns the light. If the light stops working virtually for any reason other than crushing it, call HiViz LEDs and we’ll get it taken care of right away. We mean truly the life time that a customer owns that light.”

HiViz LEDs is located in Lillington, NC and is owned and operated by firefighter, Sam Massa, and his staff. HiViz LEDs offers a complete range of lighting solutions proven on the fire ground referred to as the FireTech lighting solutions. These include low profile Brow Lights, scene lights, apparatus work lights, self contained emergency response kits, compartment lights and handheld lighting solutions. All lights except the compartment lights carry a lifetime warranty. HiViz LEDs also carries a full range of flashing emergency response lights for fire, rescue, ambulance, police, and first responders.
