SNOHOMISH, Wash., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- It's just a matter of when and where of course...emergencies are going to happen. As a law enforcement officer today, you know you have to be prepared for every possible scenario, even the ones you can't possibly plan for.
Police always prepare for unusual events, but what about barricades? When it comes to carrying standard cones, how many can you realistically fit in your vehicle/motorcycle? What would you have to sacrifice to carry something that may not even make it back into your vehicle? Flares are great, but some states don't allow them and many are concerned about the hazards of combustible materials in their vehicles. Motorcycle officers have never had enough space for cones and new vehicle designs for 2011 and beyond show new enforcement vehicles offering less trunk space than ever before. This seems like a time for innovation, for an idea that could finally be a game changer.
What's needed is a low profile, inexpensive, fully reflective temporary barricade. Something lightweight, weather resistant, and able to be anchored to the surface somehow, but removable. Functional, space efficient, instantly available, and of course at a lower cost than what's currently available...it would be incredible if any one product could satisfy all these criteria.
Vanguard ADA Systems has, with their new product DisposaCone, come up with a disposable temporary barricade that not only provides high visibility and reflective surfaces on all sides, designed to be comparable to a traditional rubber cone, while weighing only 2 ounces. Interestingly, they're compact enough to fit 12 or more inside any motorcycle saddlebags. DisposaCones are recyclable with other paper goods and won't blow away once attached to the surface! The 18-inch tall DisposaCone will withstand up to 4 days in wind and rain, featuring two small adhesive strips on the base that stick to any dry hard surface such as asphalt, concrete, metal, glass, etc. DisposaCones work well with banner tape for crowd control via a small notch in the upper portion of the device. Multiple other useful features were added solely for the benefit of officer needs, including incremental markings on the device to allow for accurate indicators in perspective/crime scene photos.
DisposaCone is available in a variety of retail stores and e-commerce sites, as well as locations exclusively supplying law enforcement gear. The recyclable cones are packaged in 3-packs for convenient distribution. Best of all, one DisposaCone is under $2.00. The DisposaCone website takes product orders online and offers free shipping as well as bulk pricing. http://www.DisposaCone.com
Law Enforcement, among other organizations of emergency response around the United States, are using DisposaCones in their motorcycle division, for space savers in fleets, for crime scene perspective photos, etc. See http://www.disposacone.com/photos.html for a variety of uses.
