WASP winners of the innovation awards of Fire India 2019
It's with a great pleasure that our local distributor ASKA EQUIPMENTS won the innovation award with the Leader WASP in the "Personal Protection Equipment" Category during the FIRE INDIA exhibition in New Delhi in September 2019.
The highly prestigious award is the result of a hard work for many years of research, design, development to continually improve the Leader WASP. Invented by the former Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue firefighter and member of the UKISAR team Matt KEOGH, the Leader WASP was originally designed to protect Urban Search And Rescue (USAR) colleagues during daring earthquake rescues.
Since then, the equipment has evolved a lot and has been acquired by the French based Leader Group. It is now be manufactured in France and supplied by the Leader Group global network of dealers around the world.
Since its lauch in 2016, the Leader WASP has been exported to 17 countries around the world and equips today a lot of teams of firefighters and emergency service personnel like : Exercice Unified Response, Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, Kent Fire and Rescue Service, UK ISAR, Fire Services – Hong Kong, and many others.
