Exploring Utility Among First Responders


A friend of ours was invited to stop by a meeting at the Harlem Roscoe Fire Department to see what they thought about the Centipede™ Portable Work System. Does the inherent portability and heavy capacity have a unique application for first responders?

Two of the first ideas that came to them was:

  • Use in and around training burn buildings. From building projects to a pizza table for the trainees, some of the traditional uses were mentioned.
  • One we haven’t thought of before and will be looking into is what was called a “triage stabilization table.”

We left a couple units behind for them to work with. Fire Chief, Donald Shoevlin, sent along his thanks and we wanted to share:
