Coldfire Tactical is often the first choice for tactical teams who are on the front line.  Unfortunately, at times members are literally in the line of fire.  As the result we are providing some information that answers the question, “What happens if a Cold Fire Tactical Can is shot?”  This is important information to know because it is important to know that flying metal or shrapnel is not produced as the result since many Department of Law Enforcement Agencies trust Cold Fire Tactical.

You can see by the video and the pictures that were sent to us by agency who is using Cold Fire Tactical that our cans ruptured but did not produce any shrapnel.

One of Cold Fire Tactical’s mission is provide additional safety to those who provide vital services throughout the United States.  One of those vital services is our nation’s Truck Drivers.  They work relentlessly each day driving countless miles and logging endless hours behind the steering wheel of their trucks.  We recently received an email from one of truck driver traveling on the east coast.  He credits his Cold Fire Tactical can with greatly reducing the damage to his truck.

Here is the message we received:

One of our Owner Operator’s driver had a scary experience in December. As he was heading to his first drop in Miami, FL. His right rear trailer wheel bearing went out. This is normally a catastrophic issue if not caught immediately due to the risk of fire. With units on the truck, it can get ugly very fast. Our driver of that truck used his head when he noticed the first puffs of smoke in the rear mirror. He pulled over to the shoulder on I-95 and used the ColdFire Tactical Extinguisher quickly. He stated that it put the fire and heat out quickly and caused did not allow the fire to cause structural damage to the trailer, the hydraulics of the trailer or the new car cargo on the trailer. He stated that whatever the cost of the extinguisher, it was worth it. ~Cecil Robison

In an instance someones life can change and this is especially true with first responders.  We came across this article from Portage County, Ohio.  It reinforces our mission to help protect our first responders and illustrates why every law enforcement officer needs a Cold Fire Tactical™ can.  The article describes the devastating story about a Sheriff Officer in Ohio who was serving a warrant when the suspect tossed a flammable substance on the officer and set him on fire.

Here is the full story as reported by, (

ROOTSTOWN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A deputy serving felony warrants was seriously injured Thursday night when the suspect threw a flammable liquid on the officer and then set him on fire.

According to the Portage County Sheriff’s Office, the unidentified deputy was taken to the burn unit at Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital. His condition was not available early Friday morning.

Deputies arrived at the suspect’s residence on the 3900 block of Ohio 44 in Rootstown at about 6:43 p.m.

As the deputy approached, the male suspect threw a container with flammable liquid at the deputy and quickly ignited it, according to the sheriff’s office.

Officers on the scene rushed to help the deputy, while other officers were able to grab the suspect.

The residence also caught on fire and was heavily damage, the sheriff’s office reports. Several other deputies had to be treated for smoke inhalation.
