June 30, 2017 – Extreme Tactical Dynamics (ETD) today announced the launch of its new police light, the revolutionary BLAZE CORE™ Visor Light. Unlike traditional emergency vehicle visor lights, which have add-on option Takedown Lights, BLAZE CORE TECHNOLOGY™ instantly transforms the entire visor light from colored flashing lights into 6,720 Lumens of blazing white Takedown light with the flip of a switch. The new LED technology squeezes 2 LEDs into the space for one: a 3-Watt Colored LED with a 3-Watt Takedown light. This innovative configuration produces a dual function in the space of one standard LED core.
“I got the idea for BLAZE CORE TECHNOLOGY™ because many of our customers consistently requested the addition of extra takedown lights to make nighttime traffic stops safer. This revolutionary LED technology provides officers with five times more takedown illumination than any standard visor light, without the need for optional purchases,” says Chris Dallmann, company CEO and designer of the BLAZE visor light.
Nighttime traffic stops continue to be one of the leading causes of injury and death to police officers across the United States. BLAZE CORE™ LEDs with their exceptional SHIELD OF LIGHT™ could prevent countless deaths and injuries by directly minimizing the risks officers face during nighttime traffic stops. BLAZE produces abundant, widespread light so officers can thoroughly assess a stopped vehicle and its occupants before approaching it. A highly visible scene makes it possible to recognize and quickly react to threats early enough to save police lives.
Deputy Terry Gray of Griggs County (N.D.) Sheriff’sDepartment says it best: “On nighttime traffic stops, light up the offender’s vehicle and don’t be in a rush to get out of your unit. Sit back and watch the activities for a short time. You will see driver and passenger movement inside. You may see what appears to be the hiding of contraband and such. With lights shining on them, the occupants won’t be able to clearly observe your activities.”
BLAZE visor light has two 17″ sections, one per visor, each with 4 chambers that contain 4 BLAZE CORE™ LEDs. It is compact, multifunctional, and revolutionary! Nighttime traffic stops are safer with BLAZE!
Chief Scott Hughes, creator and lead course instructor of TNT: Tactics in Traffic realized the advantage of steady-on bright white light back in 2014. Upon investigation, he read about other officers around the USA who had also figured out that if you didn’t run red & blues with takedown lights, you could see better! “One night after making a traffic stop and arresting the driver…I could see inside the car better without the red and blue lights flashing! By using just my takedowns and spotlight, and disabling the forward facing lights, I could actually see more of the interior of the violator’s vehicle.” He continues: “REMEMBER: There’s no such thing as routine!”
Stay Safe At Night…Keep the Whole Scene Well Lit…Get BLAZE!
