This highly adaptive data-driven platform is a breakthrough in supporting those who protect us all.

Baltimore MD May 28, 2015 – Exposure to hazardous chemicals is one of the most serious threats facing Americans today. On a daily basis across the United States, we are protected from releases, spills, and reactions by those in our military and emergency services.

Managing large-scale operations and unexpected events using traditional software, spreadsheets, white-boards, and paper can prove to be exceptionally difficult when compiling all information for both situational awareness and post-action documentation. It’s critical to have “The Right Information When Things Go Wrong”.

On May 28th, 2015 in Baltimore, at the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) – International Hazardous Materials Response Teams Conference, Federal Resources revealed their new Live Operations Platform for Hazardous Material and CBRNE response. Commenting on the announcement, Chris Waier, Director of Training at Federal Resources said, “We’ve achieved this in partnership with D4H Technologies, producers of the #1 information management software for emergencies and incidents worldwide.”

Federal Resources are the industry leader in providing innovative and technologically advanced military and first responder equipment & solutions.

“If you can demonstrate you had all the information available to your organization at the time, you can defend your decision.” states Blandford. D4H Technologies’ solutions are deployed in more than 16 countries, driving over 15 million hours of efficiencies within public-safety, industrial facilities, and corporate crises.

Stevensville MD March 31, 2015 – Federal Resources, a government contracting company based in Stevensville, MD, is honoring fallen Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) soldiers at the upcoming NASCAR race taking place in Bristol TN on April 19th, 2015. Teaming with Germain Racing, Federal Resources will be displaying the names of all EOD Technicians killed in action on the trunk lid of the #13 GEICO car, driven by up and coming driver, Casey Mears. The names were obtained from the EOD Warrior Foundation’s online virtual Memorial Wall that replicates the names on the physical Memorial at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

“We are excited to take this opportunity to pay our respects and remember the warriors who risked everything to ensure our Freedom and way of life,” stated Federal Resources CEO Robert McWilliams. “The EOD Warrior Foundation has done so much to help the families of fallen servicemen and women as well as Wounded EOD Warriors, so we couldn’t think of a greater charity to get involved with for the race.”

Federal Resources has invited wounded EOD Technician, Staff Sergeant Derek Bowman of Knoxville TN, to join them at the race to represent the EOD Warrior Foundation and to help honor the fallen soldiers. SSG Bowman was wounded in action by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast and electrocuted by fallen power lines caused by the blast. The Foundation has helped SSG Bowman and his family with medical fees and emotional stress caused by the blast by connecting them with other Wounded EOD Warriors.

“EOD Warrior Foundation has provided resources and services to me and my family, and took us right under their wings when we needed it most,” says SSG Bowman. “They have given us HOPE.”

Striving to help reduce the number of warriors killed in action, Federal Resources has launched a new training program called Home-Made Explosives IQ, or HME IQ, to educate not only military students, but State and Local Law Enforcement and Fire Department students to help understand the proper response to HME threats. Led by retired United States Marine Corp EOD personnel, students can expect to learn street smart strategies and tactics not illustrated in books.

McWilliams says, “The threat of home-made explosives has risen greatly in the US, and we felt HME IQ was a great stepping stone in educating responders.”

“Federal Resources wants people to remember why we do what we do, and those 306 names on the car is a big reason. Our goal is to help train warriors using proper equipment, techniques and manpower so they can succeed in their mission and return safely to their families.”
