Testimonials

“Of all the gizmos out there that try to address poor situation awareness on the fireground, this is the best thing out there that I’ve ever seen at FDIC International.  It doesn’t totally fix the problem of firefighter disorientation, but it comes pretty darn close.”

Don Abbott | Project Mayday

“The Northern Star concept is an innovative safety device…The Fire Service is sure to find many exciting and useful ways to integrate it into our operational theaters, from structural, wildland, Urban Search and Rescue and disaster response…”

Chief Bobby Halton ret. | Editor in Chief Fire Engineering Magazine | Education Director FDIC International | Editorial Director Fire Rescue and Fire Apparatus and Emergency Equipment Magazines

“We are eagerly awaiting the launch of the Northern Star orientation compass. As a distributor of firefighting equipment we think this will be a great addition to our product line. I like the simplicity and the intuitive ease of operation. I showed the compass to several firefighters and officers and, without exception, all saw how it could aid in fire scene safety.”

Tom Darley | Vice President, W.S. Darley & Co. | Equipment Sales

“The Northern Star is one of the most revolutionary ideas I have seen in many years. While in field tests, I subjected the Northern Star to many harsh elements including intense heat, water, and dropping of my mask during aggressive company search and rescue operations. I can see this device becoming mandatory equipment for search and rescue crews…”

Jackie Clinard | Squad Captain | Montgomery Fire/Rescue

“You by far had the best product at FDIC”
