EMS gear: Deals and discounts

With tough economic times looking like they’re going to stick around a while longer, there’s never been a better time than now for getting the lowest price on EMS gear

Looking for the best deals and discounts on EMS gear? With tough economic times looking like they are going to stick around a while longer, there has never been a better time to get the lowest price on gear, but how do you get a good deal without compromising quality?

After all, EMS work is often a life or death matter. Cheaply made, unreliable equipment jeopardizes the quality of the medical care that EMS workers are putting their life on the line for.

Do not risk a life by sending your crew out with bad gear that jeopardizes their safety and the well being of others. Plus, you should know that nothing lowers the morale of EMS personnel more than having management send them out in the field with shoddy equipment and supplies. Never sacrifice quality just to get the lowest price.

When shopping for EMS gear always check the reputation of the manufacturer and provider. There are federal regulations for medical equipment such as defibrillators, ventilators, syringes and other supplies that must comply with the highest standards for safety. Make sure your supplier and manufacturer list compliance on all pertinent equipment.

Probably the best way to find great deals on EMS gear is to check with other EMS departments. They’ll usually be more than happy to share their suppliers with you.

There are also online sites that let you do price comparisons on EMS gear so you can find the best deal. Amazon, Bizrate and Business.com. are all sites where you can search for specific equipment. Make sure you check the shipping price and length of time it will take to receive your shipment, as these are important factors when buying online. Check customer satisfaction ratings, too, and make sure the company is reliable.

Do a little research and you should be able to save big bucks on EMS gear while still maintaining a high level of quality.
