MIAMI & SINGAPORE - Ronald F. DeMeo, M.D., MBA, president and CEO of Radiation Shield Technologies (RST), will provide a presentation titled "Military First Responder Multi-Hazard Protection" during the CBRN-E Asia Pacific 2011 Conference, which takes place Monday, April 11, and Tuesday, April 12, at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, 392 Havelock Road, Singapore, 169663. Dr. DeMeo, who routinely lectures and consults top governmental and military authorities worldwide on nuclear countermeasures, will speak at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the Galleria Ballroom. RST will exhibit at Booth No. 8 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the two-day conference.
Specifically, Dr. DeMeo's presentation will explore:
Preparing for CBRN-E threats
Multi-hazard protection available today
Military first responders: the first line of defense
Military partners: case studies and examples
At the conference, key regional and international military and civil experts will share their perspectives and also assess how Asian Pacific and other nations worldwide are raising awareness, coordinating first response strategies, training tactical units and deploying advanced technologies.
"As the only company that develops advanced personal-protection technologies that are scientifically proven to counter the full spectrum of CBRN-E threats, Radiation Shield Technologies was invited to participate in the conference and share our perspectives and real-world case studies," said Dr.
DeMeo, a published author who routinely speaks at top conferences worldwide and is featured in top-tier media."We are honored to engage in this dialogue, and we consider it our mission to help raise awareness and identify solutions for the CBRN-E threats faced today."
Dr. DeMeo is the noted surgeon and entrepreneur who invented Demron, the world's first and only protective material for all types of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear incidents and heat stress. He recently attained global media attention when he recognized that the relief workers and first responders at the damaged nuclear plant in northern Japan were working in basic cotton scrubs, and he took the initiative to donate more than 200 Demron Full Body Suits and Torso Vests to protect them from the harmful radiation and heat stress. The suits are expected to arrive this week in Japan. As part of its commitment to global aid, RST also donated several suits to assist with the clean-up of the red mud disaster in Hungary.
As Demron's exclusive manufacturer, RST has 13 national and international patents for the Demron fabric. The Demron armor is currently deployed throughout the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the United States. The technologies are used globally by members of the military, first responders, HAZMAT teams, police and fire-rescue personnel and health care professionals, among others. The New York City Fire Department (FDNY) recently selected the Demron technology to help improve firefighter safety.
The Demron lightweight, flexible full-body suits are made of the only impermeable CBRN fabric that permits heat exchange and enables the wearer to be cooled externally, enhancing athletic performance and survivability. In addition to the suit, RST's personal-protection line includes high-energy anti-nuclear ballistic blankets and ballistic vests. The Demron fabric has been proved to provide multi-hazard protection against gamma rays, chemical and biological threats and X-rays by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), GEOMET, and Kansas State University. Demron certifications include: National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Class 2 Certification for the 1994-2007 Standard on Protective Ensembles for First Responders to CBRN Terrorism Incidents; ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003; National Institute of Justice (NIJ) 0108.01 Certification for the Demron High Energy Nuclear/Ballistic IED RDD Shield; and National Institute of Justice (NIJ) 0101.06 Certified Ballistic Vest.
RST, with headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Miami, is a global leader in the research, development and production of multi-hazard personal-protection performance enhancement systems. Visit www.radshield.com or call (866) 7DEMRON or (866) 733-6766.
