FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Desert Diamond Industries (DDI) has introduced its Cooperative Safety Increase Program (CSIP) to provide the Fire Rescue Safety Blade to as many firefighters as possible.
According to DDI president Gionni Mione, CSIP is based around fire departments committing to purchase either the Fire Rescue Safety Blade or other fire rescue blades, based on their buying criteria. This allows DDI to know how many blades its customers need and to make them in large batches with lower per-unit costs instead of in smaller batches as they’re ordered. The more fire departments in the program, the lower DDI can drive its costs down.
CSIP’s goal is to reduce the Fire Rescue Safety Blade’s cost below that of unsafe welded and abrasive blades and make it more financially attractive to cash-strapped fire departments, according to Mione.
“Our goal is to urge departments to consider using the Safety Blade because it’s been tested by the larger departments to be the safest,” he said.
Fire departments that join CSIP within its first six months can buy the 14-inch Fire Rescue Safety Blade for $164 each, according to Mione. This cost should decrease as more fire departments join the program.
CSIP will initially be offered to volunteer fire departments, but will expand to all fire departments that DDI does business with.
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. Up to 90 percent of water and underground utilities, fire departments, and foundries in these two countries use DDI’s signature Ductile Iron Safety Blade and Fire Rescue Safety Blade.
