FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LAS VEGAS, NV, June 24, 2013 – Desert Diamond Industries (DDI) will exhibit their Fire Rescue Safety Blade, used by the New York City Fire Department (FDNY), the Philadelphia Fire Department and other major fire departments, at the Firehouse Expo 2013 firefighter conference in Baltimore, MD. They will be located in Booth 943 at the Baltimore Convention Center from July 25 to July 27, 2013.
DDI will also provide Fire Rescue Safety Blades and Carbide Roof Ventilation Blades to Firehouse Expo 2013’s Hands-on Training (HOT) classes, to be held on July 23 and July 24. These blades will be used in two HOT classes: Truck Company Tactics, Tools and Tips and Forcible Entry.
The FDNY has used the Fire Rescue Safety Blade to extricate survivors and clear wreckage from numerous accidents, including 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 Philadelphia, PA, Los Angeles County, CA, Chicago, IL, Milwaukee, WI, Houston, TX, St. Louis, MO and Memphis, TN fire departments in the United States; the Calgary, AB, Edmonton, AB, Burnaby, BC, London, ON and Hamilton, ON fire departments in Canada; and firefighter instructors Brotherhood Instructors, LLC and SAFE Firefighter.
DDI owner Nicholas Mione said that he was “really excited to be able to get to an East Coast show, since we haven’t been to one yet.”
“The Firehouse Expo is going to be a great venue, allowing us to meet face-to-face with our most esteemed East Coast clients,” he added.
Founded in Las Vegas, NV in 2008 by Nicholas Mione and Gionni Mione, DDI is now the largest supplier of diamond blades to governmental agencies in the United States and Canada. Approximately 90% of fire departments, water and underground utilities and foundries in these two countries use DDI’s signature Fire Rescue Safety Blade and Ductile Iron Safety Blade.
