Mustang Survival's Sentinel™ water rescue dry suits and dry suit liners are now part of the approved Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Surface Water Cache Equipment List.
December 7, 2012 (Newswire) - Mustang Survival's Sentinel™ water rescue dry suits and dry suit liners are now part of the approved Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Surface Water Cache Equipment List. Authorized FEMA members can now purchase through the U.S. federal government's General Services Administration (GSA) or directly with Mustang Survival dealers. This approval enables rescue professionals to equip themselves and their teams more efficiently with the latest water rescue solutions in the face of such disasters as Hurricane Sandy.
The MSD624 Sentinel water rescue dry suit, made with commercial grade waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® dry suit fabric, is the only dry suit on the market that offers Mobility Based Sizing™ and self-enabling Rapid Repair Technology™. With Mobility Based Sizing, users can order semi-custom fit suits which offer improved mobility with less bulk. With Rapid Repair Technology, users can field replace neck and wrist seals and repair small leaks in an hour or less.
The MSL600 Sentinel™ Series dry suit liner is made with a combination Polartec® classic 200 fleece and Polartec® Power Stretch fleece. It provides extra insulation protection when in cold water but also reduces thermal burden out of water. The wicking fabric move excess moisture away from the body to evaporate through the outer layers of the dry suit.
"We are excited that our latest Sentinel water rescue solutions are now readily available to FEMA teams," comments Dave Abt, Business Development Representative at Mustang Survival, "Having the ability to order the latest and best fitting solutions are essential to the safety of water rescue professionals and their mission's success. This approval by FEMA enables these professionals to efficiently acquire the equipment that help save lives, including their own."
FEMA coordinates the federal government's role in preparing, preventing, responding, and recovering from all natural or man-made domestic disasters including acts of terror. Its mission is to support citizens and first responders to ensure the nation works together to build, sustain, and improve capabilities in the midst of all hazards. As of October 8, 2011, FEMA has 7,474 employees across the country in its headquarters, ten regional offices, the National Emergency Training Center, Center for Domestic Preparedness/Noble Training Center and other locations.
