The Fireground Compass® is a self-extraction tool for disoriented firefighters and is a key component of fireground safety. The product combines a compass with rotating bezels. The first bezel is square in shape depicting the incident building. The second bezel shows the position of interest, ex: command post, exits/points of entry. The FireGround Compass is lightweight, compact and durable.

Structural fires are trending toward burning hotter and faster due to the nature of materials used for interior finishes and furnishings. In addition, larger “box” type stores and warehouses with vast interior spaces are becoming the norm across the country. For these reasons, a new tool is necessary to assist firefighters in finding their way out of harm as quickly as possible.

Halcyon Products, Inc. has developed an affordable, easy-to-use fire rescue product that can be used by all firefighters. This tool will orient firefighters at an emergency scene thereby reducing the possibility of the firefighter becoming lost, trapped, injured or killed.
