This program allows manufacturers to have their products tested in the field by the law enforcement community, and if a product receives an average score above 3 out of 5, it receives NTOA Field Tester Recommended Status. The Blast Gauge System received a resounding 4.78 out of 5.
The Blast Gauge System is an easy to use overpressure gauge that records an operator’s exposure to an explosive event, providing data that’s invaluable in triage and treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Originally created for and adopted by the US Military, the life-preserving aspects of the system have recently been recognized by the Law Enforcement community. Unfortunately, Police Officers, Bomb Squads, and SWAT Teams alike are often exposed to overpressure from Explosive Breaching, Flashbangs, and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The Blast Gauge displays immediate warning for field triage and in depth reports for tracking cumulative exposure.
“The gauges and software are simple to set up and download after use and provide you with a record of exposures and measurements that you can document,” says a Police Officer from Pennsylvania while scoring the gauge 4.96 out of 5. “I would recommend this product to everyone involved in SWAT and EOD if you are being exposed to explosive blasts, ballistic breaching, and noise flash diversionary devices during your missions and training in order to measure what you’re exposed to during these events.”
An Officer for a Colorado Department agrees. “I would recommend these gauges for departments that have an explosive breaching program. They certainly give you some feedback as to whether your calculations are accurate and whether you are putting your operators at risk. The cost is actually not bad and most departments could find this funding within their budgets.”
Look for the Blast Gauge System to be featured as the newest Member Tested and Recommended product in The Tactical Edge journal, the official journal of the National Tactical Officers Association. The Tactical Edge, published quarterly, is the number one source of information for tactical law enforcement officers throughout the U.S., Canada and the world. This journal offers its 40,000 readers the most current and useful tactical information available.
