Darley Family Foundation Sends 5,000 Gallons of Water to Dixmoor, Ill.

ITASCA, Ill. -- The Village of Dixmoor has been facing a water crisis for nearly ten days, forcing residents to search for safe water alternatives. In effort to help the citizens in their most vulnerable time, the Darley Family Foundation sent a truckload of Safe Water Boxes™ to Dixmoor. One truckload holds twenty-three pallets of Safe Water Boxes, with eighty boxes per pallet, adding up to 5,000 gallons of water in total. Each box is 2.64 gallons of premium drinking water.

Officials stated the cause of the water crisis was a faulty valve that had been turned off and caused several breaks in the pipe; the valve must be dug up and manually turned back on for the emergency to be resolved. Fire hydrants from Harvey and Blue Island are being used to fill up the Dixmoor reservoir, and a boil water order is in place.

Unfortunately, the current fix to Dixmoor's water crisis is only a band-aid solution; the infrastructure is over 100 years old and a permanent fix could cost in excess of $20 million. This could be a long-term crisis for Dixmoor.

"We hope our contribution will ease the difficulty Dixmoor residents are currently facing," said Kevin Sofen, Darley business development manager.

Churches of Scientology Promote Community Partnership on National Night Out

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Scientologists across America took a stand against drug abuse and crime August 3 by joining local law enforcement and nonprofit organizations to make National Night Out 2021 special for their communities. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and raises awareness about crime and drug prevention. The Church of Scientology International has backed this initiative for more than three decades.

Scientologists took part in events ranging from neighborhood barbecues, live concerts and family fun days hosted by their Church of Scientology to helping organize neighborhood events and providing drug and crime prevention materials to those attending.

"We support this initiative and its purpose of making neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live," says Fabio Amicarelli, Director of Humanitarian Programs of the Church of Scientology International.

The numbers show a clear relationship between drug use and crime:

* 21 percent of those sentenced in state prisons and local jails are incarcerated for crimes committed to obtain drugs or money for drugs.

* Drugs are a factor in almost 40 percent of those jailed or imprisoned for property crimes.

* 14 percent of those incarcerated for violent crimes report they committed their most serious offenses for drug-related reasons.

Scientology Churches sponsor chapters of Foundation for a Drug-Free World and the Foundation's award-winning Truth About Drugs initiative. They also provide drug education specialist training and work with local educators, police, churches and nonprofits to reach youth on this vital subject.

And in a direct address to crime, they use The Way to Happiness, the common-sense moral code written by humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard. With it, they assist community crime prevention efforts and provide police and correctional officers with tools to help inmates and ex-offenders become ethical and productive members of their communities.

Examples of the use and success of these programs are documented in the original television series Voices for Humanity on the Scientology Network.

The Founder of the Scientology religion is L. Ron Hubbard and Mr. David Miscavige is the religion's ecclesiastical leader.

Mag Instrument, the USA manufacturer of the MAGLITE Flashlight, Forms Partnership with First Responders Children’s Foundation

ONTARIO, Calif. -- Mag Instrument, the U.S.A. manufacturer of the MAGLITE® Flashlight, has formed a partnership with First Responders Children's Foundation. The initial kick-off of the partnership will be Maglite's sponsorship of the Foundation's annual Fun City Bowl. This is an event in remembrance of 9/11 that pits the New York City Fire Department against the New York City Police Department. Each department fields a football team and they will clash on the gridiron at MetLife Stadium.

Mag Instrument will produce limited edition MAGLITE® flashlights with the FRCF logo, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of these lights will be donated to FRCF in support of their mission. These lights will be available on https://maglite.com/.

"We are very pleased to be starting what I am sure will be a long and beneficial relationship with FRCF," said Anthony Maglica, Founder, Owner and CEO of Mag Instrument Inc. "I was born in New York City and spent many years there and know first-hand the great and heroic work both the NYPD and FDNY do and I hope we are supporting them and their children through FRCF for many years to come."

Sponsoring or attending the Fun City Bowl is a wonderful and personal way to show gratitude to our uniformed heroes and their families and to honor the 20-year commemoration of 9/11. Proceeds will support college scholarships and grants for first responder families who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Proceeds will also support the FDNY and NYPD football teams. Contributions to this event will have a direct and immediate impact on the children whose families have already sacrificed so much.

"We are thrilled to have Maglite join us to salute our first responder heroes," said Jillian Crane, President of the First Responders Children's Foundation. "The children of first responders embody resilience and hope for the future."

Maglite and FRCF will also be collaborating in June and July to promote National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month. July is the deadliest month of the year for traffic related fatalities (including pedestrians). Darkness and low-visibility play a deadly factor in these deaths and Maglite is on a mission to illuminate the danger.

‘I am Lauderhill’ Campaign Features City’s Police Officers – Short Form Videos Reveal Fun Facts about Local Law Enforcement

LAUDERHILL, Fla. -- The City of Lauderhill has launched a new video campaign featuring local police officers sharing fun facts about themselves. The "I am Lauderhill-We are Lauderhill" segments are emailed to residents and other subscribers in the City's official newsletter, Lauderhill Living and posted on social media. City officials in collaboration with the consulting firm RMA (www.rma.us.com) developed a plan to foster stronger connections between the community and law enforcement by focusing on officers' local roots, hobbies, favorite sports teams, and music, along with other engaging aspects of their personalities.

"Through this campaign police officers reveal themselves as the neighbors, friends and family members they are," said Leslie Johnson, Director of Public Relations and Cultural Arts. "These videos have been a tremendous tool in our overall campaign to enhance the positive connection between our officers and residents."

RMA was hired to develop a strategic communications plan for the City, with special emphasis on creating new avenues to engage the community with law enforcement. This initiative was conceived well before the recent headlines, but its implementation has come at a most opportune time.

"During our biweekly collaborative meetings with the City's leadership, we agreed that it was imperative for Lauderhill's residents to feel comfortable calling the police not only in an emergency, but also to report critical information," said Sharon McCormick, RMA's Director of Business Attraction & Marketing. "The goal of this campaign, coupled with prior initiatives by the Lauderhill Police Department, is to change the preconceived notions that some residents had about police in general, by creating a safe environment for relationship-building."

The email and social media campaign also allows the police department to share success stories about cases closed through the very popular segment, "Just Don't, You Will Get Caught!" This section of the email showcases the dedication of local law enforcement in their pursuit of catching criminals, leading to a safe environment for their residents.

In addition, the campaign features regular messages from Chief Constance Stanley. As an African-American woman, who leads a large police force, her words resonate. Chief Stanley's impassioned letter to the community in the wake of George Floyd's death was a powerful message about racial injustice, the need for accountability, and an earnest plea for unity and dialogue. She has followed that message up with regular communications highlighting Lauderhill's comprehensive crime-fighting strategy, which is built on facilitating and maintaining positive communication and collaboration.

About RMA:

Founded in 2009 by Kim Briesemeister and Chris Brown, RMA is comprised of a phenomenal team of leading experts in economic development, real estate for governments, marketing, urban design, and financial analysis.

Rhotheta International Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Civil Air Patrol

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Rhotheta International Inc., a full-service distributor of German-designed radio direction finders (DF), proudly announces the firm's 20th anniversary of providing DF equipment to the United States Civil Air Patrol (CAP).

Radio direction finders are a vital tool for search and rescue (SAR) missions. Utilizing a DF saves valuable time by guiding rescuers directly to the location of emergency beacons used by aviators, mariners and outdoor enthusiasts.

The 80-year-old CAP is the volunteer civilian auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, conducting approximately 90 percent of all inland SAR operations nationwide. Last year, it executed 845 missions, flew 1,158 hours, made 534 finds and saved 117 lives.

Today, more than 450 of CAP's nearly 600 aircraft are equipped with Rhotheta DFs.

"Over the last two decades, Rhotheta International has cultivated a symbiotic relationship with CAP, fusing their extensive SAR operational experience with Rhotheta's engineering expertise," said Ventura Rigol, Rhotheta International's chief executive officer and general manager. "We have a history of listening to their needs and evolving our products accordingly."

Over the years, CAP has extended accolades to Rigol and his organization for "outstanding product and technical support to Civil Air Patrol and its members." In one of its recognition letters, CAP stated, "The performance of these systems has met and exceeded our expectation - some of our members have said the DF 'takes all the fun out of tracking ELTs (emergency locator transmitters)!' - allowing our crews to fly directly to the RF (radio frequency) signal source. No matter what the particular geography is as we fly over all kinds of terrains, the performance and effectiveness of your system has been unquestionable."

Last month, CAP surpassed the 100-lives-saved mark for the fourth consecutive year when it rescued two lost hikers in Wyoming. The availability of small, low-cost personal locator beacons is likely a contributing factor to increases in rescues over the last decade. According to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration statistics, the number of individuals rescued in 2019 was more than double the number just 10 years prior. Rhotheta DFs are a proven, valued tool in CAP's SAR arsenal.

Rhotheta International provides sales engineering, comprehensive service, and product support for customers in North, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, China and Israel.

National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and MAGLITE Partner with Pedestrian Safety Institute to Promote National Traffic Safety Awareness Month

ONTARIO, Calif. -- The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) and Mag Instrument, U.S. Manufacturer of the iconic MAGLITE(R) flashlight, have partnered with the Pedestrian Safety Institute (PSI) to drive awareness of the deadliest days of the year for pedestrian and traffic fatalities in the Month of July.

July has been designated National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month because of the spike in accidents and fatalities during that time of year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration a pedestrian was killed every 88 minutes in 2017, now that number is even higher.

6,283 pedestrians were killed in 2018, an increase of 3.4 percent from the previous year and the highest number in 30 years. A research paper by noted economist and author Jay Prag of the Drucker School finds that pedestrian injuries and deaths from accidents cost the United States economy more than $60 billion in 2018 alone. The vast majority of accidents and the highest percentage of deaths (up to 75% according to some studies) occurred at night with poor visibility and distracted driving being major contributing factors.

"Pedestrian deaths exceed those by drowning and motorcycle accidents; exceed deaths by food borne illness in the US; and exceed deaths by tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough combined. They even exceed the combined deaths in home fires, boating accidents, and commercial airline accidents each year. If pedestrian deaths were a disease, drug companies would be searching for a cure," said study author Jay Prag.

Roadway hazards abound for the first responder. Traffic volume and speed, distracted drivers and the additional distraction caused by a roadway incident leave firefighters and others working the scene highly vulnerable. As of June 8, 2020, 20 first responders have been struck and killed while working vehicle incidents this year. Dozens more have been injured, with an even higher number of near misses predicted to be occurring daily.

"The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation joins with other agencies in calling for all drivers to remain attentive, slow down when approaching an incident on the roadway and safely move over to give first responders the best opportunity to do their work and return home to their families," said Chief Ronald J. Siarnicki, Executive Director of the NFFF.

"Maglite is committed to safety and security and make our products with those reasons in mind. We urge people to stay safe and be particularly vigilant around this deadly time of year and of course - carry some form of illumination at night," said Tony Maglica, Founder and CEO Mag Instrument, Inc. "Our goal is to reduce fatalities and injuries that occur on our roads and highways in vehicle traffic accidents, especially among pedestrians, who are far likelier to be fatally struck by vehicles at night than in the daytime."

The mission of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum is to honor the fallen, tell the story of American law Enforcement, and make it safer for those who serve. Traffic safety for our officers is closely tied to pedestrian safety, and it is a priority to bring awareness of the topic to the nation. We are honored to be a partner in National Traffic Safety Awareness Month," said Marcia Ferranto, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

NFFF, NLEOMF, Maglite and PSI will be using various social media and other communication channels to promote National Roadside Traffic Safety Awareness Month in July.

MAGLITE(R) is a founding sponsor of The Pedestrian Safety Institute and sponsored the research by Prag. The full research paper is available at the website: https://www.pedestriansafetyinstitute.com/.

Smithtown-based PuroClean franchise to Provide Free Sanitizing Services for First Responders’ Personal and Utility Vehicles on April 24 at Setauket Fire Department

SMITHTOWN, N.Y. -- On Friday, April 24, Robert Corrado and his team from PuroClean of Smithtown will say "thank you" to first responders in the best way they know how: By offering sanitizing services for their personal and utility vehicles.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Setauket Fire Department, 394 Nicolls Road, Setauket, NY. The company is working in partnership with the Stony Brook Police Department and the Setauket Fire Department and picked the location for its proximity to Stony Brook University, one of the largest hospitals on Long Island.

PuroClean is known for its property restoration services related to water, fire and smoke damage; mold removal; reconstruction; and biohazard cleanup. It will have multiple trained and certified technicians on-site applying an EPA-certified, proven effective and safe, anti-microbial treatment to the cars and trucks of first responders' vehicles who stop in during the designated hours. The sanitizing treatment prevents contamination and minimizes the risk of pathogens spreading to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

"The dedication and selflessness of the front line emergency services and healthcare workers here on Long Island are second to none and we want to do our part to show them our gratitude," said Corrado, owner of PuroClean in Smithtown, which serves all of Long Island and the five boroughs. "These individuals have enough stress on-the-job without worrying about having to decontaminate the vehicles they and their families travel in. Likewise, this provides a simple option for cleaning their utility vehicles."

For Corrado the event is personal as he has close connections to Stony Brook, where he received his degree as did his dad and brother. His wife meanwhile has worked at the university for many years and is currently in the social work department. Yet, he says it's the unique bond that New Yorkers have with the health care and emergency services community in general that drive him to lend a hand.

"In New York, I believe we have a deeper appreciation for the brave men and women who protect and serve because of 9/11 but also because we understand that in an area our size, the demands and pressures on them are much bigger than most other places," said Corrado. "If our event makes their lives easier, than I will sleep easier at night."

The sanitizing process takes about 10 minutes and is first-come first-served. Corrado said that if the event proves to be a success, then they will expand the event to multiple days in April and May.

Infrared Mechanical Articulating Video Borescope Now Available from ViewTech Borescopes

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- ViewTech Borescopes, North America's top seller of Video Borescopes, recently added another video borescope to their lineup. The VJ-3 Infrared (IR) mechanical articulating video borescope can illuminate a dark area or room with IR light, which is undetectable to the human eye. While the VJ-3 IR is mainly used with an infrared light, users can switch to a white LED light if the inspection requires non-infrared lighting.

The VJ-3 IR is available with an insertion tube diameter of 6.0 millimeters and lengths of 1.0 or 2.0 meters. Featuring full four-way articulation, a rugged, liquid-proof design, along with a full one-year warranty, the IR video borescope is rated to see a distance up to 20 meters in total darkness.

The VJ-3 IR is ideal for police, SWAT, military or security operations where undetectable surveillance is necessary or when a white light cannot be used during an application inspection. The easy-to-operate VJ-3 IR also includes a magnetic support base that can assist with inspections. In addition to the VJ-3 Infrared video borescope, ViewTech Borescopes also recently released two other borescope models, the VJ-3 Dual Camera and the VJ-3 Ultraviolet (UV).

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a nondestructive testing instrument used for the remote visual inspection of machinery, equipment and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of an inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with control panel, LCD monitor, power source and all necessary circuitry.

About ViewTech Borescopes

ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America's #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

Mag Instrument to Launch the MAGLITE Tactical Group (MTG) at SHOT Show 2020

ONTARIO, Calif. -- Mag Instrument is introducing the MAGLITE® Tactical Group (MTG) at SHOT SHOW 2020. The introduction of MTG coincides with the release of several new and enhanced products for tactical use for law enforcement and military including, the ML150LRS Compact Rechargeable System, MAG-TAC II, and Butt Stock Shell Holder.

The ML150LRS Compact Rechargeable System, a smaller version of the award-winning ML150LR, is estimated at 800 lumens, a beam throw of approximately a quarter of a mile, patented heat sink technology, excellent battery life, fast charging, and multiple-function sets and operating modes.

"These new products we know will be well-received in the law-enforcement community and at the SHOT Show 2020," said Anthony Maglica, Founder and CEO of Maglite.

The MAG-TAC II is a compact hand-held flashlight, CR123 powered and ergonomically designed with multiple contoured grooves to provide a firm grip for those using either the HARRIES HOLD or what legendary firearms trainer Bill Murphy has coined as the Rodgers/MAG-TAC Hold.

"Other tactical hand-held flashlights used by law enforcement have tactile surfaces to reduce chance of slippage, but the MAG-TAC II provides a whole new level of secure grip and control in high-tension situations," said Bill Murphy, President of Firearms Trainings Associates.

The newly enhanced MAG-TAC® LED Rechargeable System now with higher lumens and longer run time, is an advanced lighting tool powered by a high capacity Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) rechargeable battery engineered for long service life with a 2.5 hour charge time. Along with superior quality, performance, and reliability, the MAG-TAC® LED rechargeable flashlight comes with a detachable pocket clip and a USB powered mountable charging base. The aluminum body has an aggressive knurled design and stealth matte anodized finish and comes with either a crown or plain bezel.

Maglite Tactical Group is also introducing a tactical shotgun Butt Stock Shell Holder (BSSH). The BSSH will fit most of the popular shotgun models for both right- and left-hand use and provides quick access for up to 8 shells for fast and versatile reloads. "My preferred combat weapon has always been the shotgun and this accessory helps alleviate the one real tactical drawback to that weapon," said Murphy.

Also featured at the booth will be MAGLITE® Roadside Safety packs available in four (4) different models.

All of these products will be showcased at Maglite SHOT SHOW Booths 4029 and 30109.
