Non-Lethal Defense to Protect Schools

Salt Lake City, Utah: HERO Defense Systems LLC, a manufacturer of non-lethal products, has announced a defense program to protect schools and educational facilities. Built on proven technology, these award-winning products demotivate attackers using powerful chemical irritants.

HERO® is providing its full product line, along with online and in-person training to schools, with the intent to saves lives.

The company’s patented devices use high powered nitrogen to launch a chemical irritant called PAVA at attackers, disabling them for up to an hour. PAVA causes rapid inflammation in the capillaries resulting in temporary blindness, nausea, coughing, difficulty breathing, and intense burning sensations. PAVA has been trusted by police and military around the globe for decades.

HERO® enters the market in Colorado with multiple bundle options that can be mixed and matched to meet the needs of individual institutions. Schools can purchase products that fire sticky gel, powder filled projectiles, or both. Additional training and active cartridge refills are available along with in-person training for up to 20 people.

CEO David Clemons says the goal is to save lives:

“Our mission is to keep students, faculty, and parents safe on any campus in America. We’ve set goals to change public opinion about non-lethal solutions as a first choice rather than bullets, which aren’t always needed. We can make a difference right now to widen the adoption of non-lethal self defense products and save lives.”

Promising affordability to traditionally budget constrained schools, HERO® is providing their products at discounted prices to protect schools. Early adopters can also expect to be rewarded with free in-person training at their school.

Teachers can keep non-lethal tools in the classroom confidently while continuing to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for all.
