First Responders

Shielding Firefighters and Law Enforcement from Gamma Radiation

In the press

First responders are the first on the scene during a nuclear incident and the first to face the risk of exposure to harmful radiation. StemRad has developed the 360 Gamma wearable shield, which protects first responders from the potentially deadly effects of exposure to gamma radiation. The combination of mobility and protection from gamma radiation was not possible before StemRad brought its revolutionary 360 Gamma to market.

With StemRad’s shield, first responders, like those who selflessly responded to the Chernobyl nuclear meltdown in 1986, will not have to sacrifice their lives to protect others. The Chernobyl first responders had to enter the damaged reactor to put out the raging fire, but this exposed them to high levels of gamma radiation, damaging their bone marrow. Within a few weeks, bone marrow failure led to their deaths; their bodies had lost the ability to produce new blood cells. Had these first responders been equipped with the StemRad 360 Gamma, which shields the critically important bone marrow in the pelvic region, it is very likely that most of them would still be with us today. With the 360 Gamma, when you encounter gamma radiation,  you will be able to perform your life-saving tasks with the knowledge that you and your people have the absolute best protection available.

“I’ve been testing Stemrad’s 360 Gamma, and it’s a real game changer. It’s easy to wear, it’s comfortable to move around in, but most importantly it gives us first responders the ability to save lives in a nuclear event without having to pay with our own”
