Tradition has Met Innovation!

The CHAR is a cutting edge innovative tool that was designed by two seasoned firefighters that work in one of the busiest fire departments in the Mid-West. The CHAR Tool features a curved head that will allow ease while punching holes in ceilings, a drop snoot that features griping teeth that will act as an anchor point on joist, foot steps for quick access climbing to the attic or self rescue, and a gas shut off.

    Char tool

    Posted by Eric Meier on Apr 4th 2019

    I’m a fireman on Detroit’s west side and just received my CHAR. In my experience a lot of Pike poles break and some New York hooks bend, depending on the manufacturer . I don’t believe the Char will do either one. This tool feels like it’s on a different level of craftsmanship, but only time will tell. My first time using it was in a two story dwelling fire. I used it to help remove the rear security door, absolutely destroyed the second floor ceiling, and then climbed into the attic. After entering the attic I was able to put out a small amount of fire and proceed with the standard wash down. Full transparency, this wasn’t a ripping attic fire, but I sure do look forward to when that time comes. I look forward to reviewing this product further once it gets more use.
