Protection for First Responders

Whether you are a paid first responder or community volunteer, the fact remains that you encounter bizarre, volatile and dangerous situations.  As you work to save lives, who works to protect you?

The biggest mistake we can make as a society is to allow ourselves to believe that it can never happen to us.  While statistically speaking, the chances are low, the reality is that there will be more mass-shootings and there is no way to predict whether it will be in our community.

Should you be involved in an active shooter situation, we believe you deserve to be protected.  We have simple, practical and affordable options to make sure you make it home to your loved ones every day.  

Here are the options we recommend for first responders.

Keep a Vest Under Your Uniform

The most economical option we have for the first responder is to recommend you wear a vest under (or over) your responder uniform.  You can wear your vest as a regular part of your uniform or, in an active shooter situation, you immediately put on your velcro attached vest and instantly become more protected.  The vest can be put on in less than 10 seconds.  Its easy to do and quite literally can save your life. So wear a vest to your next emergency response and help keep yourself safe so you always make it home to those you love.

"Pack" It Up for Daily Use or As a Go Bag

For a more versatile option, we offer combo packs.  Combo packs include a bulletproof vest HIDDEN inside a panel on the backside of the backpack.  The backpack itself is fully functional and the hidden vest is truly non-obtrusive.  

We recommend this option if you are someone who likes to carry a backpack anyway (functions as a normal backpack with the vest protection on the go) or if you might want to consider creating an emergency "GO BAG" that you keep near during your work day.  Day-to-day you can easily use our backpack as your regular carrying bag.  As a "GO BAG", you can easily fill the backpack with emergency supplies that would be readily accessible in an emergency situation.  

CLASSIC Combo Pack - Cost $199

Lightweight | Most Popular Package |360 Degrees of Protection | All Age Appropriate | NIJ Level IIIA Protection

This is our most versatile option.  Users remove the vest from a hidden panel in the back of the backpack.  Once the vest is on, the user is protected with panels in front and back and the ballistic nylon also offers projectile protection around the sides.  In addition, the user can shield the face with the remaining backpack to protect from flying projectiles with an additional plate insert (available for purchase), for further protection. 

The CLASSIC pack weighs 4.5 lbs so can be carried by anyone.  Additional NIJ Level IIIA and III Bulletproof Plates can be added to the DefendAPack Backpack, to offer further protection.
