Shane Connor has been involved in promoting preparedness since the 70's, and also as the national factory representative for a body armor manufacturer in the eighties. More recently, though, he has been the owner of KI4U, Inc. which he founded in 1999. KI4U, Inc. is the only licensed radiological laboratory in the country specializing in the calibration of Civil Defense radiation survey meters, Geiger counters and dosimeters.
Eight months prior to 9/11 they also acquired over 100,000 such Civil Defense instruments from FEMA out of the Federal Depot in Fort Worth Texas and are authorized to calibrate and re-certify these instruments to make them available to government agencies and the public. They count amongst their customers the US military, numerous government agencies on the federal, state and local level, as well as countless first-responders and the general public.
