SafeGuard Clothing recently donated one of its premium bullet resistant vests from its own range to us.
The donation was made as part of SafeGuard’s initiative to partner with local and regional Colleges to promote education and awareness of safety. The leading manufacturer of premium body armour has made it a mission to improve the education base of institutions and help them offer better practical experience to students enrolled on Public Services courses.
Havering College is the latest education institution in the line of many to receive a donation from SafeGuard Clothing. The donated bullet resistant vest puts the focus on the importance of safety and protecting the lives of law enforcement and military operatives. In the light of the increasing number of terrorist attacks, urban crime, random assaults and shooting incidents, it’s becoming necessary to educate students at College level on the importance and use of body armour.
Vital information that can improve safety awareness and survival rates amongst Public Service officials includes knowledge of new materials used in the design of bullet resistant vests, correct size and carrier type selection and fit, and updated NIJ standards.
The equipment will be used for demonstrations in our Public Services courses to educate students on the working mechanics behind the design and structure of tactical armour.
Thomas Bowman, Clothing Communications Manager at Safeguard Clothing, said:
We are pleased to assist Havering College in the improvement of their Public Services courses and the donation of one of our bullet proof vests aims to expand on the learning experience of students.
The brand is known for its strong commitment to industry standards and innovative development – something that Colleges partnering with the company will surely benefit from. Both we and SafeGuard are interested in raising awareness amongst students about industry best practices, safety equipment standards and mechanics.
Such partnerships are greatly beneficial to our students as they provide access to an industry leader's expertise and technology advancement, enriching their learning experience. The use of SafeGuard's bullet proof vest in our courses will demonstrate the working mechanics behind staying safe in the line of work that involves daily risks.
