In an expanded display for Heli-Expo ’13, LifeBlanket (Booth No. 2313) is displaying its original Pocket Rescue Bivy ultralight emergency shelter, Tech Tarp Personal Survival Equipment and original Cowboy Blankets, along with its updated +LifeBlanket patient-packaging systems and modular FR ANSI safety vests.
LifeBlanket, based in Colorado, manufactures all-weather patient packaging for medical transport, disaster response, personal emergency and search-and-rescue gear.
Along with the most recent contracts is a major purchase by the Maryland State Police, one of the oldest publicly-funded emergency medical flight programs in the U.S. The program has selected LifeBlanket’s original patient-packaging system for service in the aviation unit’s new AgustaWestland 139 fleet, for which deliveries began last week.
According to LifeBlanket, the aviation command wanted a system that provides quick and easy patient access and makes patient handling fast, easy and secure. The +LifeBlanket system also greatly limits cross contamination, a major consideration in today’s medical environment, especially in an airborne environment.
At Heli-Expo, LifeBlanket is offering a buy-one get-one free special for its original Cowboy Blanket, “the perfect blanket for air and car travel, camping, boating and outdoor events,” according to the company. Customers need only provide a business card.
