Typically, police officers are the first on the scene to an auto accident, which many times may involve a vehicle fire. Until the development of the X-Ball® extraction device, these responding officers limited option was to rush up to the vehicle and attempt to break out the glass with their axe, should the doors be jammed and unable to be opened. This creates an added danger to the officer because they are now exposing themselves to potentially harmful toxins that are being omitted from the burning vehicle. By deploying the X-Ball® extraction device, they can throw it through the glass, allowing fresh air into the vehicle. Thus, not only protecting them from the potential interior toxins but also providing precious fresh air to the occupants and possibly allowing them to gain a better read on the situation (number of occupants, injuries, etc.).
