CBP needed to obtain all-inclusive PPE kits for personnel safety during civil unrest missions.

Easy Access, Repack, and Deployment
Single Officer, Complete PPE Kit
Field to 19 Locations, in Priority Order
AARDVARK worked with the CBP to source, build, and field 461 Individual Civil Unrest Kits to 19 Locations in the US. The custom manufactured, color coded, wheeled cases were internally sectioned for secure packaging of the equipment and to simplify transport. The contents consist of ventless, non-ballistic riot helmets, face shields, batons, shin guards, forearm protection, restraints, and gas masks. The bags had red or blue webbing sewn to the ends to signify the equipment sizes and were also tagged on the exterior with an item list for visibility. Included was an internal drawing of where items were packed, as well as a quality checklist to ensure items were accounted for. All bills of lading, tracking, packing lists, check sheets, and proofs of delivery for every CBP location were provided to the Program for their records. The MFF Individual Civil Unrest Kits are currently deployed in field use. The contract was completed in May of 2022.
