Emergency Preparedness & First Responders

Being prepared for emergencies not only means being able to react quickly when they occur but more importantly, helping to prevent them in the first place. Luxfer Magtech’s range of products help in preventing loss of life as well as helping to save lives when disasters do strike.

Life-saving products

When a humanitarian disaster strikes, we know that our products deliver nutrition and comfort in a time of need. Our flameless heating ration packs have protected individuals around the world and have been used during major food shortages, natural disasters and life-threatening situations.

Our food and beverage kits, HeaterMeals® and Café2Go® combine our self-heating technology and nutritious meals with a long shelf life. These meal kits are proven to help sustain life in conditions where there is no access to gas, electricity or naked flame.

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)

What is Vendor Managed Inventory?

Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) is a commercial service where we take responsibility for making sure that our HeaterMeals® customers have an agreed inventory position stored at our Cincinnati facility, ready to ship quickly when required. Luxfer Magtech can either then ensure that the stock is replenished automatically or work with you to determine the replenishment volumes.

Please get in touch with us to discuss your potential Vendor Managed Inventory requirements.

Chemical Response Kits

Our products can be used to detect liquid nerve and blister agents, liquid chemical agent aerosols and liquid droplets. They can also be used to test whether water has been contaminated and our desalinazation kits can transform seawater into drinking water.

At Luxfer Magtech we have been producing these kits for more than 30 years. Once exclusively sold to the military, our products are now used to safeguard and protect individuals who work in disaster and emergency service teams, medical strike response system teams and local first responders.
