In 1987, Ron Foxcroft introduced his revolutionary pealess whistle at the Pan American Games in Indianapolis. Working as a basketball referee at the time, he had seen his fair share of many unforeseeable incidents involving faulty pea whistles. During the gold medal game at the Montreal Olympics, an embarrassing incident occurred where Foxcroft blew a whistle and nothing happened. Determined to never face that sort of humiliation again, Foxcraft came up with a faultless whistle that wouldn't jam or fail. His new world famous whistle was blown for the first time at the Pan American Games where it set the tone for all referees. Athletes, police, fire, rescue workers, lifeguards, crossing guards, boaters and individuals all rely on Fox40 whistles to get your attention. Trust Fox40, the leader in whistle technology to keep you safe in all intense situations.
