Scottsdale-based BR Enterprises and Priority Environmental Solutions continue to donate and help those who risk their lives to fight these terrible fires
Scottsdale, AZ, July 27, 2011 – Executives from BR Enterprises in Scottsdale, Arizona traveled to the scene of the Las Conchas Fire in Los Alamos, New Mexico recently. This is the second time within a month the BR Enterprises executives traveled to the scene of a fire to meet with George Reyes, Unit Leader of the Southwest Incident Management Group Medical Unit, and his team. The first time, BR Enterprises executives visited Reyes and his team at the Wallow Fire in Arizona to donate products.
However, this time Reyes requested their presence and a palate of their innovative products. The Priority Environmental Solutions, PRO1TEK® products help firefighters in the field. PRO1TEK®products are non-alcohol based non-toxic, non-flammable and specifically designed to assist fire fighters in these types of environments.
According to Unit Leader Reyes, “The PRO1TEK® product line has made our working environment safer through their revolutionary systematic approach to virus and infection control. We look forward to utilizing their products for years to come.”
The Las Conchas Fire is 57% contained and has already burned a devastating 149,240 acres. Over 60 houses have been destroyed by the wildfire that started on June 26, 2011, according to the North Zone Fire Information’s website.
This product line is advantageous in a situation like a wildfire, exposure to the heat with sweat build up on the skin, can create a prime area for bacteria and contaminates to build up on the body, these non-alcohol, non-toxic, and non-flammable products are designed to help safely decrease the bacteria and irritation to the skin. The PRO1TEK®non-alcohol Hand Sanitizer and Body Wash Wipes will be distributed to provide body cleansing in the field. Because the PRO1TEK®products don’t contain alcohol they can be safely carried directly on the firefighters when they are in remote locations and need to immediately respond to an exposure.
Additionally, a new product to the U.S. market, the MedMat®, allows first responders to treat patients in the field by providing “a clean sterile surface” in which to carry out a procedure requiring a sterile field and keeping themselves and their patients safer.
The addition of the MedMat® to PES for distributors like BR Enterprises provides another device in the PES systematic approach to infection control and cross contamination for the EMS, military, hospitals, long-term care facilities and home health care markets, where clean environments are essential in reducing secondary infections and the potential of transmission of highly infectious bacteria such as C-diff and MRSA from one source to another. The unique two-layer sterile system is designed to lead to a more aseptic approach and provides a sterile surface to help reduce cross contamination.
Reyes and his team appreciated the executives of BR Enterprises for taking the time to make the visit and bring their products to the Las Conchas Fire in New Mexico and looks forward to their assistance in making the firefighters safer throughout the U.S.
“PES provided a number of new and innovative products at no cost,” said Henry Ritter, President of BR Enterprises. “This is just part of an incredible product line that deals with virus and infection control, and we are proud to represent the PRO1TEK® line. We plan to provide these products to firefighters and markets throughout the U.S. to help with this deadly problem.” Additionally, these products are also available to the consumer and health care markets.PRODUCTS, PRESSFIREFIGHTING, MEDMAT
