YOUR VISION
OUR MISSION

Born waterproof, each of TOMAR’s lamps traverses through a patented process to ensure the electronics and optics are free of moisture so you can not only have a better performing lighting product, but one that will decrease the overall cost of ownership which includes the reduction in costs for maintaining your lighting equipment for your agency.Our lightbars do not need a cage or additional equipment for protection! We utilize a complete extruded aluminum frame, designed for your working environment. Plastic has no business being part of the lightbar frame especially in rugged environments!

MOISTURE FREE BY DESIGN

Did you know everytime you clean your vehicle the substances that make up the cleaners and waxes breakdown the lens of your warning and scene lights? This causes micro-cracks along the edges and corners of the light. The breakdown of the lens material will eventually allow moisture to enter the lamp. We solved this problem! The Revolution lamps were designed with our patented sealing technology that is protected by a non-sealed gutter around the edge of the lamp. We used science to design a light that would last longer, be smarter, and more effective for your safety.

Boise Mobile Equipment

It Started With a Vision

Wildland Apparatus have unique missions, and encounter unique challenges from traditional fire-fighting.  It took the vision of Wildland Fire Chiefs working with Boise Mobile Equipment, to design a lighting package which was more suited for these remote locations.

In 2019, BME Fire unveiled the “Black and Red Demo” at FDIC and Firehouse World, and ti stole the show.  The Type 3, Model 34 Apparatus featured a new, advanced TOMAR Electronics Lighting Package, which was more streamlined and adaptable for Wildland Environments. 

Today, departments continue to adapt these Wildland Lighting Packages, as they make the change to TOMAR from “standard” NFPA 1901 packages.
