    I was at the Institution of Fire Engineers, Transportation SIG yesterday & had a presentation from a company called Hydronavitas Solutions. A large part of the presentation was given over to ‘Acid-Stop’. (apologies if you’ve seen this already)
    By all accounts the product is about to get some fairly high-level backing, with drives to get it out in the public domain as soon as possible. The strategic ‘Trauma Packs’ were mentioned as possible locations, along with ‘first responder personal issue. Possibly worth considering for our own Trauma Packs ?!

    There is little info available at present, however, the link below gives some detail.

    We`ve looked into using something similar, a company called Diphex also do products to combat acid attacks and spillages

    Hi Simon,
    Just spoken with my Ex-Colleagues in Greater Manchester FRS, they don’t use this, however the guys mentioned it may be of use when splashed with vehicle acid etc.

    Good point Mark, it was mentioned yesterday that this doesn’t need to be used at attacks of this nature, it could be workshop incidents etc.

    Got them Dave thanks.

    Interesting that again we are all looking at these issues in isolation. If we called a Bespoke workshop on this type of incident I wonder what the level of response would look like ?
