Pac Fire & Coronavirus COVID-19

Pac Fire and our response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Pac Fire Australia is closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 in Australia and other parts of the world.

We understand that this is a stressful time for all and want to reassure everyone that we are here for you and remain open for business to support our frontline emergency services.

The safety of our customers and staff is our main priority which means we have made some operational changes to ensure everyone’s well-being moving forward:

  • Our showrooms / trade stores located in Yatala (Queensland) and Marleston (South Australia) are closed to the public. We will not accept counter sales or pick ups. Don’t worry though – our courier network is still operating normally and we will be able to ship your orders to you.
  • Our office staff are now working from home where practical. Whilst we do not anticipate any change to the service we offer you, there might be some teething problems during the transition. Please be patient with us during the change.
  • Pac Fire’s warehouse staff and the PAC+CARE service centre staff will continue to ship your orders and care for your PPE. We have implemented a new roster that allows us to maintain social distancing as advised by the Australian Government, protect the health of our staff and stop the spread of COVID-19.

During this time you can still shop online anytime at pacfire.com.au, place orders by emailing sales@pacfire.com.au or call us.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time – together we will get through this new challenge.

For up-to-date information about our operations or our COVID-19 strategy please subscribe to our Facebook or LinkedIn social media pages.

Big Protection. Compact Size.

Big Protection. Compact Size. The Captains Pack from Responder Wipes

Big Protection. Compact Size. The Captains Pack from Responder Wipes

Studies linking dermal absorption of hydrocarbon contaminants and increased cancer risk have recommended stronger and more comprehensive preliminary exposure reduction strategies be implemented. Dermal wipes have been highlighted as an important step in the formulation of these strategies.

Responder Wipes® have been designed to meet the unique needs of Firefighters and First Responders. They are thick, durable and specifically formulated for use in on-site decontamination.

Infused with Micellar Water, the wipes effectively clean dirt, oil, soot and other hydrocarbons from the skin. Micelles not only remove toxins and contaminants but also return much needed hydration to the skin, lost while working in hot and demanding conditions.

Responder Wipes® are free from Aloe or Parabens. Wipes containing Aloe and Parabens have been shown to open the skins pores. Open pores can result in contaminants becoming further embedded in dermal tissue.

Their convenient packaging, including the new Captains Pack option, reduces waste and makes Responder Wipes® perfect for use while still attending an incident.

Changes to the Underwater Kinetics Torch Holder Clip

Changes to the Underwater Kinetics Torch Holder Clip

In November 2019 the 3AA CPO Underwater Kinetics eLED Torch (UKT10034+) underwent design changes required to gain certification under the revised standard UL913 Edition 8.

These changes resulted in an increase in torch body width of approximately 1mm. This change in size has resulted in the B2066114 Underwater Kinetics torch clip having a firmer fit.

What does this mean for Pac Fire & our customers?
The current clip, B2066114, requires more force to fit to 3AA CPO Underwater Kinetics eLED Torches (UKT10034+) with a manufacturing date after November 2019.

To overcome this issue the torch holder has been adjusted to suit. The updated design, B2066146, will have a slightly larger cavity to accommodate the change in body size of the 3AA CPO Underwater Kinetics eLED Torch. B2066146 will be available in the coming weeks and eventually replace the current model.

The updated B2066146 will continue to fit the other torches in the Underwater Kinetics range (Red Herculite eLED Torch UKT514609-7A+ & 4AA eLED Torch UKT14506).
