Apollo Safety: Company Launches Correctional Facility Division
Fall River, Mass. — Nov. 24, 2015 — Apollo Safety, Inc. a veteran-owned, Fall River, Mass.-based company specializing in safety products and services, recently announced the formation of a special division to serve correctional facilities.
The new division will feature extensive offerings for these organizations and their facilities as it pertains to gas detection equipment, maintenance, and monitoring.
“Correctional facilities and other houses of incarceration have many specific needs and budgetary constraints that can often make the already difficult jobs they have to accomplish even more challenging,” said John V. Carvalho III, president, Apollo Safety. “The new division will help us better serve our existing correctional facility customers and market to other facilities that need better gas detection systems and maintenance programs.”
Apollo Safety’s offerings include a wide variety of portable and stationary gas detection systems suitable for large universities, including name brands like Industrial Scientific, RAE Systems, RKI, and GMI. These systems are available for purchase or rental at weekly or monthly rates. Rental equipment is certified to NIST standards and is guaranteed for the entire rental period.
Apollo Safety also provides on-site installation and training along with 24/7 service. All Apollo Safety technicians are factory-trained and certified. In addition, Apollo offers its own training program, with five levels of certification.
“If you have a faulty system at a correctional facility, the stakes are a little higher. Inmates behind bars have to rely on others to bring them to safety should there be a leak,” Carvalho said. “By having a maintenance and monitoring service in place, the correctional facility has the peace of mind of knowing the system in place is always working.”
