Two new EOD 4020 Elite NP Aerospace heavy-duty demining suits were received by the Kherson Fire and Rescue Department sappers and explosives technicians from the Ukrainian FireFighters Foundation on the eve of the Christmas holidays!
This is a very special project for the Foundation. This is not the first time that the sappers of Kherson receive help from the "Ukrainian Fire Fighters". But this is the first time during a full-scale invasion that sappers received completely new equipment of this level.
EOD 4020 Elite is one of the world's best solutions in protecting the life of a sapper. The suit provides an unprecedented level of protection against all aspects of the explosion: fire, shock wave, debris.
This is without exaggeration the equipment of the highest class. In addition to the high degree of physical protection of the operator and the most well-thought-out ergonomics of the suit, there are also zero buoyancy and a system of internal climate control of the suit, among many other unexpected and pleasant characteristics. The sappers received two full sets of suits ready for use, including secure radio communication.
Kherson Oblast is one of the territories of Ukraine most littered with explosive objects. The scale and scope of the challenges facing the sappers of the Kherson region, as well as their complexity, are difficult to comprehend. Helping sapper units of the State Emergency Service is one of the priorities of the "Ukrainian Firefighters" Foundation.
This extremely complex project was implemented thanks to the trust and consistent support of ordinary Ukrainians, the Toyota-Ukraine company and the maximum assistance of the British company NP Aerospace and the personal participation of Siti Paretti at all stages of project implementation from invoice to delivery.
We thank the State Emergency Service of Ukraine and the Main Office of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine in the Kherson region for participating in the logistical challenges that we overcame together. Kherson Regional State Administration, not for the first time - thank you for your trust and support in the implementation of the projects of the "Ukrainian Fire Fighters" Foundation for Kherson.
The safety of our Rescuers and the priority of frontline territories are two unchanging rules for our team. We proudly and respectfully hand over these suits to our sappers.
Together - we are a force! We continue to work, help our people. Glory to Ukraine!
