Blackline Safety announces a trade-in program for its safety equipment

The Blackline Safety program allows fire departments and emergency response departments to trade in older safety monitoring equipment for credit towards a new product.
CALGARY and HOUSTON — Blackline Safety Corp., a manufacturer of connected safety technology, is unveiling an equipment trade-in program designed to make it easier for fire departments and emergency response teams to acquire gas detection equipment and monitoring software.
“Emergency responders are in a class of their own when it comes to safety,” said Blackline Safety Business Development Specialist Doug Mayer. “They need to be prepared to face any situation in order to protect not only themselves, but potentially the community at large. It’s critical they have the most advanced safety monitoring technology at their fingertips.”
The Blackline Safety program allows fire departments and emergency response departments to trade in older safety monitoring equipment that is either end-of-life or not working properly, in exchange for credit towards the purchase of Blackline Safety G7 EXO area monitors or G7 personal gas detectors.
Blackline Safety’s gas monitors are meant to keep workers safe and mitigate the hazardous conditions at hand in work environments.
As Mayer explained, the incentive is important because fire departments and response teams are relied on to use the best methods and equipment available to enhance safety, yet most are publicly funded and therefore have tight budgets. “We’re taking old equipment off their hands and giving them an affordable way to upgrade to a replacement that is leading edge,” he said.
One of the most common problems with older generations of safety monitoring equipment is the reported need to have multiple devices in order to cover the different hazardous material responses that may be encountered. Newer equipment, such as G7 EXO area monitor and G7 personal gas detectors, enable preconfigured and calibrated sensor cartridges to be easily swapped in and out on the fly.
“Users can configure cartridges ahead of time and have them ready to go, and then pick the one they need depending on the emergency they’re about to head into,” explained Mayer, adding that there’s no downtime required or need to worry about leaving a gap in their safety monitoring process.
