The Original Red F.R.E.D. PRO is DOT Compliant and won the AAPEX 2016 Best New Product Award for Safety! It is this type of accolade that we're extremely proud of and continues to drive our passion for innovation!
Wagan Tech’s Flashing Roadside Emergency Disk (FRED) is a safe, bright, and effective tool for warning other motorists of your emergency roadside situation. A safe alternative to road flares, the FRED PRO is IP67 rated (waterproof/dustproof), shatterproof, extremely bright, and is a highly versatile and valuable tool no matter what your use. Use it at home or on the road, your friend FRED will not let you down!
Why battery powered vs. rechargeable?
We're often asked why we didn't opt for a rechargeable version of the FRED light; the answer is simple: reliability. We found that emergency services rely on FRED to keep them safe, if it doesn't work, it can lead to a dangerous situation. Rechargeable units need to be recharged regularly, and they can run out of juice while in use; if you need it immediately, do you have time to recharge it? Our flares are back in action with a simple tool less battery change! Also, batteries are included!
Our original FRED was a hit in every market from: Military, Law Enforcement, Ambulance Companies, Fire Departments, Tow Truck Operators, Civil Service, Aircraft, Civilians, and everything in between; everyone had so much positive feedback to give! Many departments rely on our FRED Lights to keep them visible and out of harm’s way. Wagan Corporation THANKS those individuals for their dedicated service!
Emergency Use on the Road
FRED PRO was built to be a safe and effective replacement for dangerous road flares. Road flares are great for being seen, but pose a massive fire risk and are hard to extinguish after use. The FRED PRO remains cool to the touch and does not emit a flame that can start fires. FRED PRO uses bright LED bulbs that have a life span of over 50,000 hours and are resistant to shock and are extremely bright. With 5 Flash modes and a 6 white LED worklight, it is as useful as it is versatile.
Emergency Use at Home
The FRED PRO is not only for roadside use, it can be used at home to identify your location so that first responders can easily find you; with a magnetic backing and flush fitting hooks, the FRED PRO can be mounted or placed nearly anywhere. If you are in an emergency, seconds count. Placing a FRED PRO on your house or curbside can make it easier for emergency personnel (Police, Fire, and Ambulance) to find your location!
Uses Limited by Your Imagination
FRED PRO can be used for non-emergency use too. A great way to add party ambiance; use as a neat floating pool light show, walkway or path marker, keep track of the kids at night, or marking your campsite, FRED’s uses are only limited by your imagination!
IP67 & Shatterproof
The FRED Light is IP67 (Ingress Protected) which means that dust will not enter its case (dust tight) and it can withstand powerful water jets. For regular users, that means that the FRED PRO is built tough; dust and water do not affect the FRED PRO and it floats too! Having a Polycarbonate case surrounded by a Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) wrap, the FRED PRO Light is shatterproof and well armored for the bumps and bruises of life. The TPR armor aids in better visibility and gives a non-slip grip.
