“I used a blade last week that blew us away.” – Newton Township, OH Fire Department

"I used a blade last week that blew us away." - Newton Township, OH Fire Department

We’re back from the ACE14 conference in Boston, MA, and we come bearing more testimonials about the Fire Rescue Safety Blade. This one’s from Captain Josh Bryan, Training Coordinator for the Newton Township, OH Fire Department, and it includes photos of the Fire Rescue Safety Blade in action. Here’s what he has to say:

Chief, I used a blade last week that blew us away. We had one sent as a demo and tested it during our recent level I & II classes. Every instructor saw first hand (sic) and then tried it ourselves. We all agreed that it was stronger than anything we’ve seen or used prior on our USAR training’s (sic) we’ve taken… We cut metal, re-bar, locks, Steel doors, then cut 6-inch concrete without a problem, then as a final test cut 1/4(-inch) steel on a building corner pillar, the concrete behind it and the re-bar inside the concrete. It cut like butter!

The price is far cheaper and is lifetime guaranteed! I’d love to get two of these for Newton.

“I Have Never Used a Blade that Worked as Efficient as This Blade” – Houston Fire Department ARFF

"I Have Never Used a Blade that Worked as Efficient as This Blade" - Houston Fire Department ARFFForgive us, but we have to toot our own horn today.

Senior Captain Ronald Krusleski of the Houston Fire Department‘s Aircraft Rescue Firefighting (ARFF) squad sent us a glowing testimonial for the Fire Rescue Safety Blade yesterday. We’re rightly proud of some of the things that he said:

“We used the 16” Safety Blade on a Boeing 727 fuselage during a four day rescue class. This blade was unbelievable on how quick it cut through the fuselage. We used one blade for a day and part of another day before we changed to a new blade. In the past, we would have gone through multiple blades in one day. I have been in the fire service for 28 years and I have never used a blade that worked as efficient (sic) as this blade. We will be ordering more blades to replace the few we used during our training.” (emphasis ours)

Well, Capt. Krusleski, we’d like to thank you for the kind words and the photo that you took of the Fire Rescue Safety Blade during training:

San Diego Public Utilities Department Water Branch on the Ductile Iron Safety Blade

Water Articles on Desert Diamond Industries' Blog

Kenny Stanley, Water Systems Technician 4 for the  City of San Diego Public Utilities Department’s water branch, doesn’t know which diamond blade his branch used before switching to Ductile Iron Safety Blades, just that it was some “cheesy blade” from Korea. He does remember the cutting segments breaking off, though. None of his guys got hurt, but it was still aggravating.

“The guys would come in (and say) my blade’s dull!” said Stanley. “Yeah, if you’re missing pieces…”

San Diego received a trial blade from Desert Diamond Industries about two years ago, and now uses the Safety Blade to cut cast iron, PVC, ductile iron, and concrete. Stanley said it lasts longer, and added that its solid steel design resists breakage, unlike the welded Korean blades that they used before.

San Bernardino Municipal Water Department on the Ductile Iron Safety Blade

Water Articles on Desert Diamond Industries' BlogThe San Bernardino Municipal Water Department has used the Ductile Iron Safety Blade since March of 2011 to cut steel pipe, replacing the abrasive and steel blades that they used before then. Here’s what Raul Serrato, the department’s Water Utility Supervisor, has to say about it:

“We had a contractor put them on our saws to cut some pipe, some steel pipe, and he was really impressed how it cut because it doesn’t have a lot of sparks and a lot of metal shooting out all over the place, and he was surprised how clean-cutting it was.”

Fire Rescue Safety Blade Blows the Competition Out of the Water – One More Time

Remember that great Rescue Methods video that we posted a week or so ago, where the Fire Rescue Safety Blade left the competition in the dust when cutting steel fence, plywood, concrete and roof shingles?

Well, we do. And you know what? We like that video – so much, in fact, that we asked Rescue Methods if we could add it to our YouTube channel from their YouTube channel. They said yes, which is our feeble excuse for showing the Fire Rescue Safety Blade do what it does best yet again.

Enjoy!
