Mount Pleasant, PA (PRWEB) August 02, 2011
In his job as the General Manager of Product Development for Mobile Concepts by SCOTTY, Henri Degre is used to announcing new vehicles and trailers that prevent fire, crime, or accidents. The company’s latest product takes “prevention” to a new level, however. Mobile Concepts, a major vendor of various government agencies, medical response teams, and corporate contractors, has unveiled a new unit they are simply calling the iScotty Fire Safety House, a mobile educational facility that is intended to prevent fire-related injuries and accidents by teaching kids about the proper fire safety protocol.
“This is a different kind of project for us,” notes Henri Degre, who has led the company through heavy-duty projects for the U.S. Navy and the Department of Homeland Security. “Mobile Concepts by SCOTTY has created a number of vehicles and trailers that are used in fire prevention, but the iScotty model is all about education. It’s about preventing accidents long before they start, by teaching our children how to adequately deal with fire and fire-related emergencies.”
Henri Degre goes on to note that this fully interactive unit is meant to be “technology-driven” and “performance-based,” all in order to maintain the interest of the target audience. The Fire Safety House is fully mobile and intended to be driven to schools throughout the country. Its interactive features are geared toward kids in preschool through the third grade.
According to Henri Degre, who oversaw the design and construction of the iScotty, the unit will teach kids about fire safety and accident prevention. “The whole point of this trailer is to make it easy for fire safety experts to take their technology and equipment around to different schools,” he says. “They use these things to demonstrate, clearly and memorably, what it means to be safety-conscious as far as fire goes.”
The iScotty unit is indeed cutting-edge and technology-driven. Henri Degre points out that the mobile facility includes realistic simulations of in-house accident-starters like ovens and range top fires. Video presentations and special effect are also employed to stage a realistic fire atmosphere and an instructor is on hand to show kids the proper protocol for escaping to safety.
The makers of the Fire Safety House hope that their unit becomes a standard educational component for fire departments around the country. Says Henri Degre, “This unit will not become outdated. It will regularly download new content so that it is always up to speed, always at the cutting edge of keeping our kids safe and secure.”
Henri Degre is the General Manager of Product Development for Mobile Concepts by SCOTTY, a leading vendor for various government and corporate entities including the U.S. Navy and the Department of Homeland Security. A former police officer, Degre knows first-hand the importance of high-quality equipment in service of safety and accident prevention.
