Eddy Weiss to Introduce Emergency Response Privacy Screen System to National Audience of Firefighters and Other Emergency Response Agencies and Groups
Sarasota, Fla. – Bradenton-based Stop Rubbernecking, manufacturer of the SRN1000 Privacy Barrier System, has formed a partnership with nationally known emergency management and response education speaker and trainer Eddy Weiss, CEO of C4L & Associates of Eldora, Iowa. The SRN1000 provides privacy, safety, and security by quickly blocking and barricading accident scenes, disaster areas, restricted zones, and hazardous areas from public view. As part of Stop Rubbernecking’s plan for growth, Weiss and his team are introducing the system to their clients across the country.
Weiss and his team make over 700 presentations annually to disaster response agencies, law enforcement, fire departments and fire rescue agencies throughout the United States. “We started our relationship with Stop Rubbernecking so we could point our clientele and audiences toward their product because it’s really the only one that we’ve seen like it in the market place.”
After seeing the SRN1000 at an industry conference in late 2013, Weiss and his team began field-testing the product and are now using it in demonstrations and presentations around the country. “The climate of everyday emergency response has changed,” said Weiss. “The challenges for first responders are getting greater and are requiring more unique solutions like the SRN1000.”
One area where Weiss sees the greatest need for the SRN1000 is with fire departments. “They’re the front line of responders,” Weiss said, and he sees “incredible value” in the privacy, safety and respect solutions provided by the SRN1000, not just for victims and their families but for the emergency responders themselves who must deal with the daily stress of seeing the aftermath of accidents and disasters. Weiss and his team members use the SRN1000 in the first-responder stress and post-disaster stress management programs they offer to emergency responders.
The SRN1000 System is a durable, easily transported system of convertible barrier screens and tripods that sets up in less than five minutes and can be assembled by just one person. The barrier provides much-needed privacy for victims of car crashes and other accident scenes, and is a crucial tool for first responders to natural disasters such as tornadoes and hurricanes, as well as in man-made emergencies such as mass shootings and acts of terrorism. One of the most important uses of the system is in combating “rubbernecking” — the tendency of other drivers to slow down or stop their vehicles while traveling on highways and other roadways to look at an accident, which can sometimes lead to additional accidents involving more drivers. The system not only shields people and vehicles involved in accidents but increases safety for all by lessening driver distraction and reducing congestion and traffic jams near accident scenes. The barrier screens are also highly effective at helping to protect crime scenes and evidence from contamination.
