Due to the high risk of rollover accidents with firetrucks, firefighters say durable tools on the truck are important.

Fire trucks are frequently involved in rollover accidents. Driver inexperience, speed, and vehicle weight imbalance all serve as contributing factors.

Furthermore, the crew on the truck could be at risk from unmounted gear and tools. Performance Advantage Company tools are tested and certified to 9G National Fire Protection Agency requirements as well as military Grade B shock testing.

Firefighters’ most used tools are the “set of irons,” or a fire axe and Halligan tool bar. PAC Ironslok is a proven method to retain both the axe and Halligan bar during major rollover accidents while also allowing a quick release at fire scenes. Non-corrosive materials are used to make the tools, and no sharp edges are exposed while the irons are housed. Ironslok can be mounted either vertically or horizontally. Cab occupants remain safe during a crash while the tools stay locked in the Ironslok. The strap comes in yellow, black, or orange, and like all PAC tool-mounting products, with a lifetime warranty as well.
