UPDATES AND PROMOTIONS
On July 19, 2018, FDNY responded to a massive steam pipe explosion in the Flatiron District of New York City. The explosion, which occurred under 5th Ave, spewed billows of steam into the air, crumbled pavement, and disrupted utility services. Forty-nine buildings were evacuated while several others were locked down to shelter in place. Due to the fear of asbestos and other contaminants, FDNY rapidly deployed one of its ZUMRO Model 216 Decon Shelters on site and was encouraging anybody who had exposer to the steam or debris to immediately decontaminate themselves.

The American Emergency Response Group (AERG) held its first-ever joint strategy and training conference from January 21st through January 25th. Representatives from all of the companies affiliated with AERG as well as select partners such as IP Access International attended the three-day long event, participating in collaborative work sessions to discuss emerging requirements, market alignment and product integration. Attendees also had the opportunity to tour both BFX’s and CCS’s facilities and train on each company’s product offerings. The overall purpose of the joint strategy and training session was to increase catalog visibility across the brands and develop turnkey solutions for our customers. Contact BFX, CCS orZUMRO today to learn how our partnership through AERG can provide unique capabilities to meet your mission requirements.
Representatives of the Air National Guard saw first-hand how fast and simple ZUMRO Shelter Systems deploy. Using only the included inflator/deflator pump, ZUMRO personnel conducted a live demo and deployed the 400 square foot shelter in under 5 minutes with virtually no effort. The Airmen and Airwomen in attendance were amazed at how quickly the shelter deployed and the inherent safety and rigidity in the ZUMRO design. Several of the representatives expressed how ZUMRO is a far better option than their current equipment set and look forward to seeing these shelters in their inventory very soon.
