TheFireStore, an online source for firefighting professionals, introduces the all new, Firefighter Pocket Multi-Tool, the Tygh Tool. Designed by Philadelphia Firefighter Dan Tygh, this tool is small, versatile, and can be used for both engine and ladder work. With nearly two dozen uses in one pocket sized tool — this may be all you’ll need in your turnout gear pocket.
Firefighting requires a quick, efficient and safe response. Philadelphia Firefighter Dan Tygh realized that critical time was being lost traveling back and forth between the fire ground and the truck for essential tools, most of which were too heavy and bulky to be carried all of the time. Dan wanted to solve this nagging problem and make a firefighter’s job efficient and effective.
The result is the Tygh Tool – small and versatile enough to be used for both routine and less common firefighting tasks. This heat treated and zinc plated single piece stainless steel tool weighs less than one pound and fits easily in any turnout gear pocket. It incorporates many fire tool functions that would be useful for both engine and ladder work. The Tygh Tool will survive the use and abuse it faces on any scene and is certain to quickly become the most useful tool you carry.
