FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LAS VEGAS, NV, March 12, 2013 – Desert Diamond Industries will exhibit their Fire Rescue Safety Blade – the diamond blade used by the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) and other major fire departments – at the FDIC 2013 firefighter conference in Indianapolis, IN. They will be located in Booth 9550 at Lucas Oil Stadium from April 25 to April 27, 2013.
The FDNY has used the Fire Rescue Safety Blade to extricate survivors and clear wreckage from numerous accidents. These accidents include a March 12, 2011 tour bus crash on the New England Thruway that killed 14 passengers and a Nov. 8, 2011 construction site collapse in Brooklyn, NY that killed one worker. Other users of the Fire Rescue Safety Blade include the FDNY’s SOC Unit and the Los Angeles County, CA, Philadelphia, PA, Chicago, IL, Milwaukee, WI, Houston, TX, St. Louis, MO and Memphis, TN fire departments; in Canada, the Calgary, AB, Edmonton, AB, Burnaby, BC, London, ON and Hamilton, ON fire departments; and firefighter instructors Brotherhood Instructors, LLC and SAFE Firefighter.
According to Desert Diamond Industries owner Nicholas Mione, his company created the Fire Rescue Safety Blade “because most companies in (the diamond blade) industry only care about the profit of their sales and not how the product performs for you.”
Cheap or low-quality blades can break during emergencies, said Mione. This can slow the response of rescue workers, which can in turn cost lives.
“Other companies don’t take into account the value of safety and dependability (to) someone being rescued,” he said.
Founded in Las Vegas, NV in 2008 by Nicholas Mione and Gionni Mione, Desert Diamond Industries is now the largest supplier of diamond blades to governmental agencies in the United States and Canada. Approximately 90 percent of water and underground utilities, fire departments and foundries in these two countries use Desert Diamond Industries’ signature Ductile Iron Safety Blade and Fire Rescue Safety Blade.
