Springfield Fire Capt. Robert Duffy invents 'Quick Step Anchor' to help firefighters stay safer on roofs
“(Duffy) has always risen to the occasion on the Springfield Fire Department and we are very excited to introduce it today,” said Fire Commissioner Joseph Conant.
Duffy declined to elaborate on how much money he may earn from his invention. “It’s not about money for me, it’s about helping to save the lives of people who save lives for a living,” he said.
The Quick Step is manufactured right here in Springfield at Jesko Tool & Knife on Front Street in Indian Orchard.
