It’s a scenario that occurs far too often: after a natural disaster, emergency situation or similar mass displacement, responding agencies head to the nearest one-stop retailer to purchase basic supplies. The trouble, especially as it pertains to chemical light sticks and similar devices, is that not only are they inferior to products designed for this specific task, their unreliable chemistry can add more danger to an already precarious situation.
Cyalume has been developing and manufacturing safe chemical light solutions in the U.S. since the dawn of the technology more than four decades ago. Undisputed reputation as the premier chemical light innovator and manufacturer has allowed us to become the sole supplier of chemical light to the U.S. military and other world-class organizations around the globe. We are constantly modernizing bright, reliable solutions for a variety of emergency response applications.
Military-grade light sticks that provide bright, 360° illumination for up to 12 hours, ChemLights are so bright they can be seen from up to a mile away. Waterproof, non-toxic and non-flammable, Cyalume’s chemical light innovations have been trusted by the U.S. military decades.
Our unrivaled reputation of quality makes us the number one source for emergency light sticks, and ChemLights are among our most popular products – especially for tactical situations. ChemLights are available in a variety of lengths and intensities to provide the exact amount of light you need for as long as you need it.
Designed to maximize visible surface area, each VisiPad® provides at least 10 hours of visible light, and they are available in a variety of colors including red, yellow, green, white and blue. VisiPad is more convenient than typical triage marking, thanks to its adhesive backing; simply apply and move on. For added functionality, the surface of VisiPad can be written on in order to keep track of pertinent vital information.
VisiPad has been developed to minimize accidental activation, so it can safely be stacked and stored in pockets or pouches in large quantities for easy access and deployment. Standard size is 4-1/2” tall by 2” wide and 1/8” thick. VisiPad is available in packs of 25.
Available in a variety of colors and lengths, SnapLight® Flare Alternatives are the safer alternative to typical roadside flares. Providing 360° of illumination for as long as two hours, these flare alternatives fit securely in a provided metal bipod stand to ensure optimal position for visibility.
These waterproof, non-toxic, flame resistant flare alternatives have been developed, manufactured and quality assured in the U.S. Readily available in boxes of 12 or cases of 48, we can also work directly with agencies to provide larger quantities when requested.
In some emergency situations, visual communication is the only realistic option. When that’s the case, trust our military-grade ChemLight® SOS Signal Light. This signaling device, available in 8-hour green or 30-minute hi-vis orange versions, is a 6.25” light stick attached to a 30” lanyard with a protective casing that doubles as a handle when the device is activated.
Spin this light stick over your head to create a distinctive four-foot-wide circle pattern that can be seen from up to a mile on the ground and up to three miles away by air. With a four year guaranteed shelf life, rest assured this signal light will be ready when you need it. Available in packs of two or cases of 50.
