Advanced EMS Designs

Neusch
Retired Orlando firefighter-paramedic Scott Neusch knew firsthand that disinfection procedures failed to eradicate all the dangerous microbes left on the backboards that are used to transport patients, who often leave behind blood and other body fluids. Neusch and three partners, Joe McCluan, Mark Steinert and Scott McIntyre, formed Advanced EMS Designs and developed Board Armor, a disposable, non-porous sheath that prevents fluids from contaminating the backboard. Emergency crews can then replace the sheaths quickly, reducing turnaround time.

Ballot Box

This Memorial Day weekend, besides honoring men and women who lost their lives in military service, what are your plans?

  • I plan on having some fun (barbecuing, shopping, beaching) with friends or family!
  • No concrete plans -- going to keep it low-key.
  • I'm not taking Monday off... too much work to be done!
