FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OCEAN MEDICAL INTERNATIONAL AND SECURE WATERS SECURITY GROUP TEAM UP TO OFFER A FULL RANGE OF SAFETY AND SECURITY SERVICES TO YACHTS
Ocean Medical International and Secure Waters Security Group are teaming up to provide safety and security to vessels worldwide.
Ft Lauderdale, Florida – Secure Waters Security Group, a recognized leader in maritime security, and Ocean Medical International, an industry leader in providing medical kits, equipment and training, are teaming up to offer their combined services to vessels worldwide.
Yachts continue to get larger with more advanced technologies and an ever increasing variety of recreational “toys” carried onboard including submarines and helicopters. Owners expect their yachts to take them to the four corners of the earth, while providing all of the comforts of home. Vessels must now be equipped to handle advanced life safety and security issues, often while traveling in some of the most remote parts of the world.
“This is a great partnership for both companies because safety and security go hand in hand,” comments Corey Ranslem, Chief Executive Officer of Secure Waters Security Group. “Vessel security is very unique because of the requirements of vessel owners and crew. Many of our security personnel are dually trained as EMT’s and Paramedics.”
Dr. Ian Marshall, Medical Director of Ocean Medical International confirmed the need for maximizing medical safety and security: “There are increased health risks associated with international travel and these can be compounded when at sea and in remote areas. Health and safety are critical areas to have maximum protection”.
The Ocean Medical International medical system goes far beyond the basic drugs and bandages in a box needed to pass inspection. Medical information is provided in a user friendly and concise format, with clearly marked medication and equipment easily located, inventory management and, of course, MCA compliancy.
“The most cost effective solution to help secure large vessels and provide medical services is a solid combination of trained personnel, reliable equipment and technology that enhances the abilities of the crew and security personnel,” said Ranslem. “This type of partnership fits well within our area of security expertise.”
“Both companies are committed to excellence in service, and our association with Secure Waters Security Group continues Ocean Medical International’s philosophy of partnering with only the very best in the industry,” added Dr Marshall.
