http://www.rayovac.com/Lights/Work-Li... We arrived in St. Louis at the end of our tour, having met so many fascinating people and collected so many stories we were excited for this one. The crew at the St Charles fire department threw their doors wide open for us. The firefighters were immediately drawn to the the mini lights as they are perfect for their helmets and fit comfortably in their hands. First order of business was to put professor Eric in the bucket and send him skyward, 100 feet to be exact. Tossing the light out of the bucket onto the street below it took a great bounce and still worked! Wanting to know if it was just luck we tossed it again from 100 feet up (the lights are rated for a 30 foot drop). Same light dropped twice and still working! SOLD! Of course we were going to test these in every way, running it over with an 80,000lb firetruck is like child's play at this point but we did it anyway. The fire crew were giddy, we smiled confidently as they rolled over it 3 times. No problem.

They had something special in store for us, sure the lights can withstand punishment but how does it perform in fire situations where lives are at stake? They took us to a house used for training, complete with tight maze-like structures and walls to smash through. Oh and all of that with the house dark and filled with smoke. John Yi, a 10 year veteran of the Warrenton fire department and rescue crew, easily attached the light onto his existing helmet mount and maneuvered through the thick smoke and tight dark quarters complete with collapsing floors. Coming out the other end he had nothing but genuine high praise for these tough tools. Comparing our lights to the department issued lights he was impressed and was hoping the station would be able to put these into the rotation immediately.

Thank you to the whole crew. We all had a great time, the lights stood up and surpassed tough demands. Perfect way to end the tour.
