Unfortunately, we live in a time when ANY First Responder is a potential target, making a ballistic vest as essential as bunker gear. Body Armor Direct is proud to introduce our Fire Plate Carrier with wrap-around Multi-Threat NIJ Certified Level IIIA armor. This vest is designed to provide fire services and EMS with NIJ Certified ballistic protection is a package that also fits their needs for flexibility, durability, and uniform compliance. Plus, it can be upgraded as needed to meet almost any threat.
Perfect for anyone in the fire or EMS services who respond to incidents involving armed subjects. Whether you find yourself facing a barricaded individual, active shooter, or downtown riot it is not always possible for LE to clear the scene before you get to work. This is when having the NIJ Certified protection offered by the Fire Plate Carrier can same your life and that of the victims you are treating.
Comfort and Fit is as much a concern for Body Armor Direct as it is for our customers. After all, your armor only works if you wear it, and you will only wear it if it is comfortable. The Fire Plate Carrier is constructed to provide function, fit, and comfort without sacrificing comfort. The heavy-duty 1000D Nylon construction will withstand the rigors of the fire service without weighing down the wearer. The cummerbund system allows for easier donning & removal while also distributing the weight. Shoulder areas include High-Density Polyethylene padding as well. The one-size-fits-all design allows agencies to simplify ordering but still provide the wear with multiple adjustments for a personal fit.
Backed by the Body Armor Direct Warranty. Each carrier is warranted against defects in workmanship or materials for 24 months from the date of purchase. Panels are warranted for 5 years from the date of purchase to conform to minimum NIJ protocol in an actual confrontation. Please refer to the Body Armor Direct Warranty page for specific requirements and limitations.
Protection you can count on. The Fire Plate Carrier is constructed from heavy-duty 1000D Nylon and includes a front & back pocket that will accommodate almost any 10"x12" ballistic plate. The modular design allows the user to add additional accessories for increased protection of the throat, collar, biceps, groin, lower back, or side gap. A large front Bunker pouch lets you care for your most important gear close at hand and a front/back hook & loop attachment points make sure you will be easily identifiable. All our products are made in the USA, using American labor. This, plus a rigorous internal testing process, allows us to offer a higher level of quality control, ensuring only the best reach our customers.
