American Fire Technologies is very proud of the heroic efforts by one of our employees, Roger Nichols. Utilizing the training he received as an AFT employee, Roger provided CPR to a highway crash victim who had been thrown from her vehicle. While other bystanders looked on, Roger immediately knew what to do and provided life safety measures necessary to bring a pulse back to the victim. Congratulations to an American Fire Hero!

In the course of preparation for Hurricane Florence, AFT continued to provide service to our customers. One customer shared their appreciation. “I would like to take a moment to personally thank you and your team for all of your efforts to achieve the nearly impossible deadlines that have been laid before us on this project. You and your team as well as everyone copied in this email have gone above and beyond to make the impossible, possible. You and your team stayed in the game and supported the team even while you all where in the middle of a natural disaster that caused massive flooding and devastation. I hope and pray that you and all your coworkers families are safe and sound. I of all people do understand what you all have been through, for my family and I were caught in the flooding of Harvey just last year. We were some of the lucky ones. The compressor repairs were made in time, and First Fire was achieved in the midst of all that was going on. The unit is still working properly. Hats off to this very remarkable team that I am proud to be a part of. Wishing you and the state of North Carolina a Speedy recovery.
Li-ion Tamer® and American Fire Technologies will be partnering to deliver the ultimate safety solution for stationary lithium-ion battery systems.

By being able to detect single cell off-gassing events, thermal runaway can be prevented. Continue reading “Li-ion Tamer Partners with American Fire Technologies”

American Fire Technologies has once again participated in a fund raising event held by one of its customers.  The Plant Bowen Chapter of the Citizens of Georgia Power hosted a successful Sporting Clays Tournament to benefit the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, in which AFT participated as a Gold Sponsor.  Our very own Don Padgett (Industrial Sales Manager) participated in this event and brought along 3 other good shooters. The weather held out and a good time was had by all. Thanks to all for joining in support of such a meaningful cause.
