ERT Systems and MES Fire Announce Strategic Partnership

Ann Arbor, MI (May 10, 2010) – ERT Systems, LLC is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with Municipal Emergency Services, Inc. (MES). Under this agreement, MES will add OnSite ERT, ERT’s wireless accountability system, to its extensive line of firefighter safety equipment and services.

“It’s the perfect opportunity for us,” said Mark Beauvais, Vice President of Sales at ERT Systems. “MES is the largest supplier of firefighting equipment in North America, and this gives us immediate access to over 120 sales representatives across the US. It would take us years to build a sales organization that size on our own, and even then we couldn’t offer the range of benefits that MES provides its customers.”

John Skaryak, Vice President of Marketing at Municipal Emergency Services, added “This partnership allows us to supply our customers with an evolutionary accountability and asset tracking system that has not been available in the market place before. This new system was designed by firefighters and their unique software allows fire department management to have access to real time personnel tracking built around typical firefighting scenarios. Another reason MES choose to sell the OnSite ERT system is the customization that their management team has provided in working with individual fire department’s concerns and needs when it comes to accountability.”

The partnership was announced at the FDIC 2010 in Indianapolis, the largest fire equipment and training show in the US, and was welcomed by both ERT’s and MES’ customers. “It’s great,” stated Chief Gerald Marion of the Englewood Fire Service in New Jersey. “We have a long and trusted relationship with ERT Systems, and I am very impressed with the safety and control that OnSite ERT brings to the fireground. It’s a win for all of us.”
