Fire Rescue & Ems Expo
We attended the Pittsburgh Fire Rescue and EMS Expo on March 2nd & 3rd 2019. The expo was held at the Monroeville convention center and featured 300 exhibits. We spoke with lots of volunteer Fire and Rescue departments over the course of the two-day conference. We were also surprised to find out that over 70% of Fire Departments in Pennsylvania are volunteer. That is such a huge number of people that volunteer their time to put their lives at risk for our safety. HUGE thank you to all of the volunteers! Our booth was positioned right next to the Allegheny Mountain Search and Rescue dog team, which created quite the buzz. We also booked two demos with two departments that we spoke with at the expo: Slickville Fire and Rescue and the Fire Department from Flushing, OH.
We are so excited to have been a part of this awesome opportunity and can't wait to see what is next for us!

Check-4-It is a leading emergency vehicle inspection platform. Check-4-It has streamlined the vehicle inspection process and made it much more accurate. As a 2018 EMS World Innovation Awards Finalist, Check-4-It is changing the way that emergency staff are tracking their inventory.
Handheld is one of the fasting growing companies in the sector, with subsidiaries in Finland, USA, United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, and several other countries. They are a privately-held manufacturer of rugged mobile devices that withstand tough conditions to get the job done, with over 1,000 authorized partners covering all of their international territories.
“I loved how sturdy the product felt just while holding it. I was also pleased it runs a full version of Windows 10, with bar code scanning capability” says John Skolits, President of Check-4-It. He first came across Handheld rugged PC Products at the “EMS World” trade show in Nashville Tennessee. “Pricing was very competitive and they provide excellent warranty options. Looking forward to working with them and being able to offer a great product to my customers.”
Check-4-It is the first apparatus inventory and compliance checklist program created, written, and developed by a first responder. It’s an innovative approach to quickly inspecting first responder apparatus. In this way, first responders are prepared with all the tools necessary to provide excellent emergency services.

Handheld’s channel-centric approach focuses on building a strong worldwide network of resale and distribution partners. Numerous local subsidiaries support our growth by offering physical locations in closer proximity to our partners and end users. We established our first subsidiary in Finland in 2007. The U.S. office was founded in 2008, followed by new subsidiaries in Italy and the Netherlands in 2009, and in Sydney, Australia in 2011. In early 2012, Handheld acquired assets from distributor Latschbacher/TimbaTec in Germany and Switzerland and subsequently started Handheld Germany and Handheld Swiss. Later that year, the U.K. subsidiary was born.
