Chris Guile, Fire Investigator

Edwardsville Fire Dpt, IL

We received the dryer and it is now in operation. It works great! Hopefully this will encourage the guys to clean their gear more often. Thank you for your help.

Ken Freiburger, Chief

Walkerton Fire Dpt, ON

This unit is doing a fantastic drying job. The gear feels like it was naturally dried which leaves it soft and plyable. After our washing and drying you would think the gear was new right out of the bag.

Mike LaPlante, Assistant Chief

Farmingdale VFD (ME)

The PS2 fits our needs quite well. Thank you!

Dan Hoff, Chief
