9/11 Moves Firefighter to Protect Public from Bioterrorism with Patent for Air-Shield

TONAWANDA, N.Y., April 14 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The week-long experience of retired N.Y. firefighter Jim Thomsen after 9/11 at Ground Zero volunteering to search steaming dust and rubble for survivors, made him determined to develop a protective Air Shield that might someday reduce the danger of inhaling toxic dust. Just outside Buffalo, N.Y., he found the small workshop of Ted Arts, and as partners developed new technology able to protect against anthrax or other airborne terrorism attacks.
