As a firefighter owned and operated small business, the crew at JHB Group, Inc. has evolved from creating custom fire safety simulators for fire departments and the military into building a game-changing mobile testing & vaccination platform for Covid-19 and other public safety capabilities.
JHB Group, Inc., a firefighter owned and operated small business, has really taken hold of an age-old motto from the fire service "adapt and overcome." This Chicago-based company decided to embrace challenge and modify its existing production of its US Patented Fire Safety Simulator into an innovative mobile platform to help with the fight against Covid-19.
With collaboration from another firefighter-owned small business, SAE Customs in Volo, IL, the Health Incident Trailer is an evolution of JHB Group's successful fire safety trailer that utilizes new technology and innovative features to create a versatile asset for public safety agencies on the front lines of the Covid-19 battle. With specialized features like solar charging, iPad controls, UV disinfectant lights and ADA accessibility, the new Health Incident Trailer is quickly becoming one of the most sought after mobile assets related to Covid-19 to help with testing, vaccination, distribution and incident command. The key is the unique health safety protocols being built into every trailer to keep workers safe, while also providing a versatile testing operation that can be setup in a matter of minutes.
Following an influx of orders from health departments across the country, retired firefighter and CEO Chris Gantz said, "We have interest and orders in production from 49 states, including Alaska. Agencies understand that we are in this fight with them and are dedicated to building a specialized asset that meets their community's needs today, but also for whatever tomorrow may bring. Our entire team is really proud and excited to be helping during this challenging time."
JHB Group is getting ready to deliver its latest unit to the Catawba Indian Nation in South Carolina, where it will go into immediate use to help with that community's response to Covid-19. JHB Group will also be utilizing its new health safety innovations within its other apparatus for fire, police and military agencies, so that education, outreach and response operations can return back to "normal" with some of these added safety features like the UV disinfectant lights.
