We are pleased to announce our new distribution partnership with GALLS, one of America’s leading public safety equipment and uniform providers. Like us, GALLS is committed to serving the needs of law enforcement, military, fire, and EMS professionals by supplying the highest quality products and services. Effective this month, GALLS will offer an extensive selection of LIFELINE Tactical Rescue Tools extrication and egress devices.
GALLS understands the need for a handheld multi-purpose cutting tool that fills a current void in the industry. As of 2020, a little-known DOT mandate requiring US automakers to manufacture side windows from laminated safety glass came into full effect. Today, one and three cars on the road have side laminated windows. While this mandate helps keep motorists from being ejected from a vehicle during an accident, it creates an unindented consequence that traps the victim inside the vehicle. Existing window breakers and punches are no longer effective.
LIFELINE and GALLS recognize the importance of giving first responders extrication options in the field. Given the impact this new mandate will have on their ability to react quickly andduring emergency situations, we believe it’s criticalto increase their ability to extricate a victim from a motor vehicle accident with speed and efficiency.
Our newly formed partnership with GALLS is an exciting growth opportunity and it enables us to honor our mission to place our handheld military-grade cutting tool in the hands of first responders everywhere.
