The resulting cardiac arrhythmia and changes in heart rate, blood pressure and respiratory rate result in metabolic acidosis, a genuine medical emergency. Recent criticism of human studies with the TASER included that the subjects were in above average physical shape, starting at a condition of rest, with normal body temperatures and heart rate, sober, and only given a single 5-second TASER application.

The astute captain will guide and nurture positive interactions between department personnel in order to reduce negative expectations going in to achieve desirable results coming out.

A Kevlar fabric shell provides cut resistance and flash protection to 800 deg F. Other features include: an elastici...

Without going over each level, the system goes from Level 1 (silk weight crew T-shirt and boxers) to Level 7 (a lightweight loft-insulated jacket, vest and pants for extreme weather). The first day the boots were worn on duty, we had to conduct a search of a wooded area for a suspect, and the boot provided solid footing with the open lug sole.
