DRIFIRE to exhibit FR uniforms at Military Conferences
Apr '10
DRIFIRE, leading manufacturer and retailer of comfortable flame resistant garments, will be exhibiting at three military conferences in April 2010. The shows include the Fleet Maintainers Conference held in Phoenix on April 12 to 15; Modern Day Marine South held in Camp Lejeune, N.C., on April 20 to 22; and the Air National Guard Joint Readiness and Security Forces Conference held in Glendale, Ariz., on April 20 to 22. Military leaders, procurement personnel and security professionals attending these events will get a firsthand look at DRIFIRE's latest innovations in flame resistant apparel.

"The DRIFIRE team is excited for the opportunity to present our comfortable flame resistant apparel to America's finest military professionals. We understand that in conditions of high-stress and extreme danger, military and security professionals need to remain focused on their mission, without being distracted by sweat and discomfort. Our quality flame resistant shirts, pants and balaclavas not only protect workers from burn injuries, but also boast patented moisture-wicking and fast drying features that keep professionals comfortable and dry," says Rob Hines, VP of Product Development for DRIFIRE.

The three April conferences will allow members of military and security forces to learn, network and view the latest and greatest technology and equipment designed to keep them protected on the job. Attendees to the Fleet Maintainers Conference will include U.S. Aircrew Systems professionals, while the Marine South Conference will be attended by members of the U.S. Marine Corps. The Air National Guard Joint Readiness and Security Forces Conference is geared toward security, anti-terrorism, law enforcement and civil engineering industries. All three events have a strong focus on safety and protective apparel, equipment and gear, making them a perfect fit for DRIFIRE to showcase their advanced flame resistant clothing to those who can benefit the most from its technology.

DRIFIRE's line of Comfortable FR Wear includes a range of under- and outerwear garments that provide optimal levels of moisture absorption and dry significantly faster than cotton. The fire resistant garments incorporate design features such as no-rub, dropped shoulder seams to meet the needs of professionals working in challenging climates and often loaded with heavy gear. DRIFIRE garments are also available in a range of weights, from their latest, ultra-lightweight fabrics, to heavyweight fleeces, to give wearers the flexibility to layer or remove pieces in order to stay comfortable across all climates.

"Our goal at DRIFIRE is to provide protective clothing systems that are flexible enough to meet the needs of people working in a range of dangerous conditions and climates. We know that comfort is vital to compliance with safety guidelines, and our goal is to remove lack of comfort as a barrier to safety. In situations where stresses on the body and mind are unbelievably high, DRIFIRE gives its wearers one less thing to worry about," says Hines.
