AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator, not automatic, which is a common misunderstanding.  AEDs are designed to do one thing – identify and treat a specific type of electrical problem that prevents the heart from beating properly. This electrical condition is known as Sudden Cardiac Arrest (or SCA). It’s different and more severe type of heart attack, meaning time is of the essence.  Sudden Cardiac Arrest (or SCA) is a malfunction in the heart that causes an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). This stops the heart from pumping and stops blood flow to the brain, lungs and other organs. With its pumping action disrupted, the heart can’t pump blood to the brain, lungs and other organs.  It can cause death within minutes if the victim does not receive treatment. And the fastest way to treat an SCA is a shock with a defibrillator to help the heart regain function and beat normally.  


Philips has been leading the AED market for over 20 years by designing them to be as easy as ‘1-2-3’ –  

    • Step 1, open up the pads cartridge on the front of the device using the pull handle.  
    • Step 2, follow the visual and audio instructions to place the pads on a patient’s chest.  
    • Step 3, follow instructions to administer a shock, if necessary, and perform CPR. 

It’s also important to understand that you can’t harm yourself or anyone else with an AED! – they are carefully designed to operate only when a specific condition is present and are very clear and predictable, so you can own and use them with confidence. So, if it turns out not to be SCA, the device will not shock and instead coach you to perform CPR and assist until help arrives.

  • AEDs for our communities should be thought of like fire extinguishers – they should be widely available, easy to find and easy to use. This device is light, tough and easy to take with you, to ball games, church, anywhere you may need to help save a life.

  • And I encourage you all to get CPR trained! It will help you identify medical emergencies like SCA and be better prepared to help your family and neighbors.

NB-100 Tactical Gas Mask Features:

  • 200 Degree Field of View with Impact Resistant Face Shield
  • Two 40mm ports on either side of the mask for flexible filter attachment
  • 6-Point adjustable mesh head harness – ideal for using with a ballistics helmet or hard hat

  • Comes stock with our DefensePro N-B-1 A2B2E2K2P3 Filter Canister
  • Model can be upgraded to include an electronic voice amplifier and drinking straw.


  • Air quality – In the event of a natural disaster such as a wildfire, volcanic eruption, or severe dust storm, the air quality may rapidly deteriorate due to smoke, ash, or other hazardous particles. An NB-100 gas mask can provide protection against both the harmful particulates from the smoke as well as other harmful chemicals from the fumes.
  • Chemical Spills – Industrial accidents, including chemical leaks, toxic gas releases, or explosions, can occur unexpectedly. These incidents may lead to the release of hazardous gases or fumes into the surrounding environment, posing a significant threat to human health. Having a gas mask in your go bag can help you protect yourself in such situations until you can safely evacuate the area.
  • Biological or Chemical Attacks: Although rare, the possibility of a biological or chemical attack cannot be entirely ruled out. In the event of an intentional release of harmful substances, a gas mask can be crucial for safeguarding yourself against toxic agents or airborne pathogens. It can provide a physical barrier and filtration system to prevent inhalation of dangerous elements.

Why choose a full face gas mask vs disposable N95?

A gas mask adds versatility to your bug-out bag by providing extra protection for your respiratory system, enabling you to navigate environments with compromised air quality due to smoke, chemicals, or other hazards.

A gas mask will provide both protection for your eyes as well as your nose and mouth, as well as provides protection from gases and vapors, not just particulates.   Finally, a gas mask can be reusable, and can typically last longer in an emergency situation than a disposable mask.

Including a gas mask in your bug-out bag enhances your preparedness for various scenarios where air quality might be a concern, ensuring your ability to breathe cleaner air and reducing the risk of respiratory issues and discomfort.
