Marcy, New York: Mountainside Medical Equipment is proud to have created Law Enforcement and First Responder Drug Collection and Handling Protection Kits in response to the Opioid epidemic. The company has taken crucial steps in order to develop and supply those who witness this epidemic on a regular basis the tools that they need in order to keep themselves out of harm’s way. This allows first responders the opportunity to perform in the field in a safe manner, minimizing the risk of contamination all with one kit. This USA made kit meets and even exceeds CDC Recommendations for handling Fentanyl and Heroin and is FDA approved.
The Opioid Crisis has taken the lives of many who use and sell opioids like heroin and fentanyl. Yet, we do not hear about those who are fighting to get these chemicals off of the streets and how they are protecting themselves from accidental overdose or worse. With the overwhelming surge of fentanyl overdose related deaths, it is vital for first responders and those who handle apprehending and processing these deadly substances to protect themselves and those nearby.
