(Newswire.net — June 16, 2014) Fall River, MA — Apollo Safety, Inc. a veteran-owned, Fall River, Mass.-based company specializing in safety products and services, recently announced it will an exhibitor at the upcoming New England Fire-Rescue-EMS Expo, June 20 to June 22, at the Eastern Exposition, 1305 Memorial Ave, West Springfield.


Sponsored by the New England Association of Fire Chiefs, Inc., and co-hosted with the New England Division of the IAFC, and the New England Fire Apparatus Maintenance Association, the Expo is signature event of the 92nd annual conference.


“The tragedy in Boston earlier this year shined a light on the dangerous work firefighters and rescue workers do on a daily basis,” said John V. Carvalho III, president of Apollo Safety, Inc. “By exhibiting at the Expo, we hope to share with attendees the state-of-the-art technology monitoring systems and tools that can help prevent tragedies and save lives.”


The Apollo Safety booth, #17, will feature gas detection systems from several manufacturers. Some of these systems feature wireless capabilities that enable monitoring of multiple locations from a single location. Also on display will be handheld monitoring systems that not only provide the user with an immediate reading but transmit that measurement back to a command post.


“Fighting fire and rescue work requires teamwork. These devices give eyes and ears to people in the field and in a command post and that can only enhance the safety of those directly affected.” said Carvalho.


Apollo Safety sells and installs a wide variety of portable and stationary gas detection systems, including name brands like Honeywell, Industrial Scientific, RAE Systems, RKI, and GMI. In addition, Apollo Safety also provides training and 24/7 service. All Apollo Safety technicians are factory-trained and certified.
