FALL RIVER, MA, April 10, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Apollo Safety, Inc. a veteran-owned, Fall River, Mass.-based company specializing in safety products and services, recently announced the formation of a special healthcare division to serve hospitals, doctor's offices and other medical facilities. The new division will feature extensive offerings for healthcare facilities as it pertains to gas detection equipment, maintenance and monitoring.
"A gas leak is bad any time, anywhere. At a healthcare facility like a doctor's office or a hospital, it's even worse because it impacts people already in a weakened condition who may or may not be able to detect a smell to get help or remove themselves from that area," said John C. Carvalho III, president of Apollo Safety, Inc.. "With our new healthcare division, we can tailor the detection and monitoring system to the facility to best meet their needs and help prevent tragedies."
Apollo Safety's offerings include a wide variety of portable and stationary gas detection systems suitable for large universities, including name brands like Honeywell, Industrial Scientific, RAE Systems, RKI, and GMI. These systems are available for purchase or rental at weekly or monthly rates. Rental equipment is certified to NIST standards and is guaranteed for the entire rental period.
In addition, Apollo Safety also provides on-site installation and training and 24/7 service. All Apollo Safety technicians are factory-trained and certified. In addition, Apollo offers its own training program, with five levels of certification.
"The nature of detection systems is that no news is good news; if the alarm is not going off then all is well. That's not always the case," said Carvalho. "With our new division, we provide maintenance and monitoring services to actually test gas detection systems so the facility knows that it's working properly rather than just assuming all is well."
Apollo Safety provides service in a "state of the art" in-house service center, as well as offering on-site support with factory-trained technicians for both portable and stationary gas detection systems. Apollo uses only factory-original parts for repairs and repairs are made exactly to client requirements. Apollo guarantees a 10-day turnaround time with pre-approval, though 66 percent of all repairs are completed in five days or less. Free software upgrades included with all repairs.
