The safety of your family is always your first priority. So, why in this day and age are we still so reluctant to spoil the well thought out designs in our kitchens and throughout our homes with equipment and tools that could make a real difference when time is of the essence? Maybe because, until now, fire safety and first aid equipment looks clumsy and does little to catch the eye, that is, in a positive way. This does not detract from the fact that almost every home in Australia has a first aid box stowed away somewhere. Read More
At dFENCE, we see safety in the home as the one issue that really needs to be given due consideration. We appreciate that extinguishers and fire blankets don’t add a great deal of aesthetic joy to a room, but we also see them as essential items that should be close to hand where they are potentially needed the most. To address this conundrum, we designed the ePOD, a stylish, contemporary case within which a family can find all the equipment that they need to address household emergencies when they arise.
Given that we are living in a world that continually reinforces brands that create efficiencies and make life easier to live, we created the ePOD with a view to simultaneously addressing the style and design needs of contemporary consumers without compromising its purpose or the quality of the equipment within. What we have delivered to the market is a first aid pod that is undeniably slick, compact and can be mounted or stored in almost any place.
The ePOD was made to be portable, so if you choose to keep it on a shelf, you can always pick it up and take it with you if you are taking the family away for a break. Those that wish to create an identifiable centralised point in their home can mount it on the back of a door, on a wall, or wherever they believe makes for the most accessible point for the whole family.
In terms of its dimensions, the ePOD is 370mm in height, 275mm long and 130mm wide, which makes it a wonderfully compact solution and alternative to the traditional first aid box. What’s more, it only weighs 3.92kgs so anyone can grab it when they need it.
At dFENCE, we are proud of the fact that we are the first to bring this product to the market because we recognise the potential it has to save lives on a daily basis. However, while we were developing the product we recognised the reality that while there are plenty of fire extinguishers in homes throughout Australia, as well as fire blankets and first aid kits, not everyone actually knows how to use these different pieces of equipment.
The last thing you want is to invest in a first aid pod with a view to bolstering the safety and security of those in your home, only to realise at a crucial moment that you don’t really know how best to use it. The time lost trying to determine how to release or use a piece of equipment could waste valuable seconds or even minutes, and this could lead to a greater amount of damage, or lead to unnecessary pain and distress for those that have been injured.
As such, when you buy the ePOD from us right here on our website, you will be able to download our free app, which is available to both iPhone and Android users. We realise that a booklet that details how to use instructions doesn’t really fit with the world that we are living in now, so we decided to take things a couple of steps further. As such, one of the features on our app allows you to set up the ePOD and learn to use its essential items via revolutionary 3-dimensional augmented reality.
Here at dFENCE, we like to think of the ePOD as a smart first aid box and one that anyone in the family has the ability to engage with and understand. Practising with the equipment that is included is always a good idea, but unless you want to have to re-order new items before they are actually required in an emergency, we recommend that you simulate the actions required.
As the responsible person in the home, your duty once you receive your ePOD is to determine where it should be kept. Ideally, try to choose a place in the home where it is identifiable to all and reachable. You may not be present when something goes wrong, and so you want whoever is there to be able to reach it and get whatever they need to control an emergency situation when it arises.
While the ePOD can be considered a first aid pod don’t just think of it in terms of the medical items that are stored within, of which we have included 57, all approved by the TGA. In addition to this kit, you will also find a compact aerosol fire extinguisher, a fire blanket, a mini LED torch and a removable Velcro mesh bag, which can be used to store medications that are specific to your household and medical items that are often required by individuals in the home, e.g. an insulin pen.
At dFENCE, we sell the ePOD directly from our website and at a price that truly offers exceptional value for money. We accept Afterpay and Zip as alternative payment methods, which makes it possible to secure your contemporary first aid box now and pay for it over the course of a few months. Best of all, free postage and handling apply on all orders, no matter where you are in Australia.
So, if, like us, you believe the time has come to step up the safety standards in your home through a smart system that combines the best of tried and tested standards with modern technology, then the ePOD is the perfect choice for you. One day it just might save the lives of those you love the most.
