Apollo Safety, Inc. a veteran-owned, Fall River, Mass.-based company specializing in safety products and services, recently announced the formation of a senior living division to better serve senior living facilities, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. The new division will feature extensive offerings for these facilities as it pertains to gas detection equipment, maintenance and monitoring.
“Residents at senior living facilities are typically there because they need some level of assistance on a daily basis. If there is a gas leak, chances are pretty good it will go undetected by residents. That’s why it’s critical that senior living facilities have reliable gas detection monitors on site,” said John V. Carvalho III, president of Apollo Safety, Inc. “Our new senior living division can help these facilities select the appropriate system for their needs and make recommendations for a suitable maintenance schedule.”
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 by Honeywell, RKI Instruments, and GMI. Apollo Safety also offers portables gas monitors for rental at weekly or monthly rates. Rental equipment is certified to NIST standards and is guaranteed for the entire rental period.
In addition, Apollo Safety also provides on-site installation and training and 24/7 service. All Apollo Safety technicians are factory-trained. In addition, Apollo offers its own training program, with five levels of certification.
“By law, senior living facilities have to gas detection systems. Having those systems in place can only save lives if you know they are working properly. That’s what makes having a maintenance program critical,” said Carvalho. “With our new division, we provide maintenance and monitoring services to actually test gas detection systems so the facility knows that it’s working properly rather than just assuming all is well.”
Apollo Safety provides service in a "state of the art" in-house service center, as well as offering on-site support with factory-trained technicians for both portable and stationary gas detection systems. Apollo uses only factory-original parts for repairs and repairs are made exactly to client requirements. Apollo guarantees a 10-day turnaround time with pre-approval, though 66 percent of all repairs are completed in five days or less. Free software upgrades included with all repairs.
