Industrial Scientific and Municipal Emergency Services (MES) have been awarded a $500,000 contract to provide a large state’s Emergency Management Regional Response Team with a complete gas detection and connected safety solution.

The new solution from Industrial Scientific will replace outdated and ill-performing equipment to improve safety for both first responders and the general public.

“This group is leading the way in adopting connected safety solutions in the fire industry,” said Holly Mazzia, District Manager for Industrial Scientific. 

“These departments now have robust gas detection and connected safety programmes that give the power of knowledge and data to every time. From the larger regional response team, all the way down to smaller volunteer fire departments.”

Industrial Scientific’s Radius® BZ1 Area Monitors, Ventis® Pro5 Multi-Gas Monitors, iNet® Now Live Monitoring, and other equipment were selected to give the emergency response teams with enhanced visibility into gas hazards, both locally and remotely.

MES, a trusted partner of Industrial Scientific, was selected to fulfil the order and implement the new programme.

“Our sales team worked hand in hand with Industrial Scientific to pull this project together,” said Bob Malone, Vice-President of Carolina Sales for MES.

“This programme has provided state-of-the-art gas protection equipment, which will protect first responders and help save lives in the communities they are serving.”
