Finegan Lights Kickstarter Project

Finegan Lights are a patented illumination retrofit kit designed to be attached to ground ladders. The retrofit kit does not alter the structural integrity of a ladder and does not affect NFPA certification.

Finegan Lights are the brainchild of Bill Finegan, a respected career Lieutenant with the Philadelphia Fire Department. His outstanding safety innovation has already benefitted from years of testing and careful development. The company is ready to go.

Firefighting is inherently dangerous work and the danger increases exponentially in the dark. A ladder that is capable of illuminating itself and the immediate area is a game changer. Ladders with our lights will be able to illuminate the foundation, exterior walls and windows of a structure, enhancing firefighter safety and offering improved situational awareness at night.

The Finegan Lights will add vastly expanded functionality to a tool you already use. The applications are limited only by your imagination. It’s perfect for portable scene lighting in an MCI. It can be used for lighting up MVA scenes or confined space rescues. Drop four ladders on the edge of a field and you have just demarcated a helicopter-landing zone. The Finegan Lights easily adapt to many different operational requirements.

But most importantly the Finegan Lights will help rescuers see beyond or under a ladder and more easily locate the ladder itself when seconds matter most.
