Survival Armor Is Pleased to Announce Two New Additions to Survivors Club
Ft. Myers, Florida - Survival Armor Special Project Director Gary Hughes is pleased to announce two new additions to our Survivors Club. The Survivors Club is made up of our public safety partners who have been protected from serious or life threatening injury and death by wearing or using Survival Armor products. We ask that all officers remember that their Survival Armor body armor is capable of saving them from more than just gunfire, as illustrated below.
Fort Collins CO
A Fort Collins Colorado Police Department officer was responding to a suspicious person call when he encountered an intoxicated suspect at the top of a stairwell. The suspect presented a .38 special revolver and fired, striking the officer in the upper right shoulder tab of his Survival Armor ballistic vest, less than 1”from the edge of the panel. The officer was able to return fire, killing the suspect. The bullet was stopped on the very front of the officer’s Survival Armor ballistic vest, preventing serious life threatening injury to the officer.
Cedar Hill TX
A Cedar Hill Police Department officer, Ann McSwain, was attempting to arrest a violent offender who managed to light her and two other detectives on fire. While the two detectives suffered minor burns, Officer McSwain suffered 3rd degree burns over roughly 20% of her body. Her uniform shirt and trousers were burned away, but her Survival Armor ballistic vest, in her words, “protected me perfectly and I suffered no burns whatsoever on my torso”. Officer McSwain is on the road to recovery and looking forward to returning to work.
Both officers will receive replacement Survival Armor ballistic vests at no cost to themselves or their agencies. If you have a story about how your Survival Armor protected yourself or others please share it with us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
