Danny Vartan became a volunteer firefighter at age 17. During his many years with fire departments in New Jersey, Danny realized that when responding to or involved in emergency situations along roadways such as vehicle crashes, fires, mechanical breakdowns, flat tires and the like, First Responders, civilians, utility crews, truck, bus, tow truck companies as well as drivers of non-commercial vehicles all needed a portable warning light/beacon designed to alert people in the vicinity that caution must be exercised to protect those present and at risk.
At first, Danny was determined to invent a light that would prevent serious injury and death to First Responders when they were engaged in emergency responses at night. It did not take long for Danny to realize that his product would protect many others in addition to First Responders. He realized that the incendiary strike flare, that has been used for many years, is now out of favor and use by many emergency service departments. It is outdated technology, bad for the environment, poses a risk of fire, burns to skin, often damages clothes and shoes of First Responders who use them and can damage the tires of vehicles that ran over them after they are spent.
Danny invented the BEACON-4-LIFE to provide advanced warning of an emergency scene or other roadside emergency such as a flat tire or mechanical breakdown in order to warn oncoming drivers away in the same way that traditional incendiary strike flares have done for many decades only now we are using a much safer and eco-friendly state of the art LED lighting technology.
The BEACON-4-LIFE Mission
- To Protect & Save Lives of First Responders, Civilian Drivers, Tow Operators, Road Service Workers, Utility Company Workers, etc.
- Protect the health and safety of both first responders and civilians by not having to be exposed to the dangers associated with incendiary strike flares (Intense Heat, Noxious Smoke, Sparks, and Flames).
- Protect the environment from the chemicals emitted by the use of traditional incendiary strike flares.
- Save precious taxpayer money from being wasted on single-use traditional strike flares which cost at least $1.37 per flare (when purchasing a Gross of 144) and last no more than 30 minutes each. Your taxpayer money is literally “Going Up In Smoke.”
