BullEx has been awarded a GSA contract for its HazMat Training Tools, which include a gas detector training system, a hazardous materials placard kit and a leaking propane tank simulator. These innovative tools are used by firefighters and safety personnel to conduct hands-on hazardous materials response training.
The BullEx GasTrainer is a gas detector simulator that helps firefighters and safety personnel learn how to properly meter for gasses and respond to emergencies. The system uses simulated electronic gas sources to create virtual “hazardous areas” and a handheld training gas meter that detects the simulated gas concentrations. The gas sources can be set up in work areas, chemical storage facilities, and near HVAC equipment where HazMat dangers can actually exist. Students can be trained on how different gases behave, how to locate emission sources, and how to establish safety perimeters in the event of a hazard situation.
The BullEx HazardTank and Leaking Propane Tank are compressed gas cylinder props that create a hissing sound effect when the tank valves are opened. Onboard electronics and integrated speakers create a loud simulated gas leak.
BullEx has worked closely with GSA to negotiate discounted package pricing for Federal Government agencies. Two specific packages are available under this contract, a GSA GasTrainer Package and a GSA HazMat Training Tools Package. For those agencies that feel that multiple unit purchases will best suit them, an additional discount has been negotiated. A large number of accessories can also be purchased under BullEx’s GSA contract.
The GSA GasTrainer Package includes everything a training officer needs to get started with their gas meter training: an instructor unit, a student unit, three gas source emitters and a carrying case.
The enhanced GSA HazMat Training Tools Package includes everything found in the GasTrainer Package as well as the Hazmat Placard kit and the choice of a HazardTank or Leaking Propane Tank Prop.
“BullEx training systems have proven to be ideal tools for safety officers from federal, state and local government agencies all across the country. We are very proud to have been awarded a GSA contract for our newest HazMat products and look forward to working even more closely with our government clients moving forward,” commented Simon Balint, CAO of BullEx. “Hands-on confined space training, gas monitoring, and HazMat response training should be an integral part of any organization’s safety training. Fortunately, GasTrainer offers a safe, clean and truly realistic way to challenge firefighters, first responders, and other safety personnel.”
