Norfolk, Virginia, November 26, 2007 -
Safety Vest is a Beacon in the Night
A newly introduced safety vest is already earning accolades for its innovative features, and recently won the Innovation Award from the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
The “LED Lighted Safety Vest” is visible nearly twice as far as previous reflective models. Bikers, joggers, construction crews – anyone who is out at night – will benefit from the vest’s advanced LED technology, which is visible for more than a mile.
The safety vest is designed for use in a variety of low light conditions and is available in a variety of high visibility fluorescent colors. Features of the vest include:
- One Mile Visibility in any direction
- Reflective Bands 2” at shoulder, 3” at waist
- 130+ hour battery life
- Open sides that allow access to tools and other belt items
According to a spokesman from Everlite LLC in Norfolk, Virginia, “The lighted vest is also perfect for law enforcement officers, firefighters, and search and rescue teams. Firefighters can be seen more visibly in a smoke-filled room, and search and rescue teams are more visible to individuals needing help. Where voices are sometimes muffled or distorted, the lights serve as a beacon of assistance.”
The Town of Kill Devil Hills Police Department in North Carolina recently reported and encouraged ALL cyclists, pedestrians, and runners to " Illuminate, Illuminate, Illuminate.” The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) also emphasizes bicycle safety, and stresses the importance of lights and reflectors.
With the “LED Lighted Safety Vest,” nighttime and early morning runners and cyclists become more visible. There is also a black leather version of the vest available for the motorcycle enthusiast.
