Feb. 6, 2011 – The Hexagon Water Dam is a Waterwall water storage unit from Cintec, developed to meet the needs of the firefighters who fight remote fires. The innovative inflatable Waterwall dam is designed to provide additional rapid water storage for firefighting appliances where main water supply is unavailable.
The Waterwall dam allows a tanker to empty water into the unit and leave location to refill. Meanwhile, the fire appliance can instead draw water from the Hexagon storage unit, enabling a more timely and efficient fire response.
The dam can be quickly inflated using readily available air pumps or compressed air supply. As soon as the dam is inflated, the device is ready to receive water. The unit is designed to withstand uneven ground and gentle slopes, making it an especially viable option for remote and rural fire response locations.
The light-weight, compact unit measures can be adjusted in size and capacity and can hold 2,745 U.S. gallons.

Jan. 19, 2012 – Fire, EMS and other emergency-service personnel can use the eDispatches mobile apps on their iPhone and Android smart phones, allowing the smart phones to operate similar to a voice pager with stored voice. The eDispatches system has sent audio dispatches via text and phone calls since 2004, and now, members of departments that deploy the eDispatches system can download the eDispastches app for free. When a call is dispatched, the speaker on the phone opens up with an alert tone followed by the actual audio dispatch. Didn’t catch the address? Use the replay and hear it again. Recipients are also able to control their personalized settings from the app itself. The eDispatches system is totally automated and does not require your dispatch to be involved at all.

Nov. 22, 2011 – BloodSTOP works to control blood loss much faster than traditional
methods and is easily washed off with water as the wound begins to heal.
Once this 100-per-cent natural hemostatic agent is placed on a wound,
it reacts with blood and other body fluids to form a gel that seals the
wound and remains until it heals.
Originally developed for use in surgery, BloodSTOP can now be found in
emergency responders' first-aid kits, hospital emergency rooms, military
field applications and more. Using a proprietary method, cotton
cellulose is etherized and oxidized creating a highly absorbent,
water-soluble matrix; it is a non-irritating, environmentally friendly
and cost effective method for treating many different wounds. Since
there are no adhesives used there is no discomfort or disruption of
wound surfaces caused by the removal of bandaging materials.
