BLU-MED Announces New Medical Preparedness Contracts

KIRKLAND, Wash., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- BLU-MED Response Systems announced today two new contract awards, worth over $850K combined, that will increase medical preparedness and surge capacity for hospitals and public health systems in the State of Idaho's Health Department District Four and Suffolk County, NY.

The first contract, for three Rapidly Deployable Medical Response Systems, was awarded by the Idaho Central District Health Department. This contract includes customized BLU-MED deployable medical shelters, HVAC and electrical systems, generators and ancillary support units. In addition to the portable medical shelters and equipment, BLU-MED will provide training and technical support services for the Central District Health Department in Idaho in early 2008. The state-of-the-art BLU-MED shelter systems will be used to boost medical surge capacity in the event of pandemic influenza, bioterrorism, or other mass casualty incident.

The second contract, awarded by the Suffolk County Fire Rescue and Emergency Services agency, is for two Rapidly Deployable Medical Response Systems. Suffolk County will have access to these BLU-MED RapidSurge Systems full-scale emergency medical shelters that have been upgraded with negative pressure isolation capacity, a decontamination system, and a complete latrine package.

"These systems will offer great flexibility in meeting both Idaho's and Suffolk County's public health needs in a disaster or emergency," said president of BLU-MED Response Systems Gerrit Boyle. "They can be utilized to provide space for hospital surge capacity, medical isolation and large scale immunizations, as well as, extra capacity for triage and evaluation at the scene of an incident."
