COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Threat Extinguisher Non-Lethal Defense Systems was designed to help save lives. In the wake of increasing violence at many places of worship, schools and businesses our founder created an easy to use system to protect open spaces.
Threat Extinguisher provides an innovative solution by providing simultaneous communications with an option for defense.
1) Alert: texts vital information to designated contacts while sounding a loud alarm.
2) Notify: immediate calls first responders for dispatch that includes where the activated base is located.
3) Defend: a non-lethal option for defense, if necessary, in the critical moments while waiting for help to arrive.
Threat Extinguisher Design
Active threat training has been evolving over recent years with more emphasis on defense. We have developed a system that reduces response times while providing active defense. Our co-founder Sam Fasone said “I wanted to design a system to give people a fighting chance in the unfortunate event of an active shooter or other violent threat”.
When the Threat Extinguisher is removed from its base it Alerts, sending texts to designated staff of the active threat, identifying which base has been activated as well as sounding a loud alarm. People will know which exits are away from danger or allow them to “hide” in a secure place. Any armed guards such as school resource officers are alerted to the location, they can quickly move towards the threat.
We Notify with an instant call to police for dispatch to the activated base location. This eliminates the need for a phone call from a potentially frantic person and reduces the response time for action by first responders. “It will pinpoint the location where the problem is, when someone pulls out the Threat Extinguisher it sends a signal with the specific base location”, says Mr. Fasone.
Finally we Defend, no more throwing staplers, desks or whatever is at hand. Our non-lethal, easy to use Threat Extinguisher “fights” with a powerful tactical grade pepper spray to immobilize an attacker in the critical moments while waiting for help to arrive.
Threat Extinguisher is currently installed in both public and private schools as well as churches. To see how it works go to: http://abc6onyourside.com/news/local/westerville-man-invents-crimefighting-tool-that-uses-fire-safety-techniques
