From crime scenes and fires to HAZMAT spills, power outages, severe weather, evacuations, or motor vehicle breakdowns and crashes, being able to quickly see what is going on is an essential step to providing public safety. Cyalume Technologies - the world leader in safety and rescue lighting - offers Snaplights®, a reliable way to see and be seen.

SnapLights® are based on the same chemical reaction as a firefly. They turn on in a snap - literally - safely mixing two chemicals in a durable, waterproof, transparent plastic tube to create instant light. There’s no battery, bulb, flame, spark, heat, or fumes - just safe, dependable light

Cyalume Technologies is the sole provider of Cyalume® lightbars to the United States Military, NATO, FEMA and the Red Cross.
