Contract Launch - Fire and Life Safety

CHAMPS Group Purchasing and County Fire Protection Launch Contract for Fire and Life Safety Services

CHAMPS GPO and County Fire Protection Launch Contract for Fire and Life Safety Services

CHAMPS Group Purchasing and County Fire Protection have launched a contract for all types of fire protection services (fire alarms, sprinkler systems, backflows, fire extinguishers, kitchen hood suppression) and many more effective until Sept. 30, 2019. The contract is available to all CHAMPS members in County Fire Protection’s service areas in Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

“CHAMPS’ new agreement with County Fire Protection demonstrates our commitment to developing contracts with Ohio-based companies,” said Jan Elder, director of contracting services, CHAMPS Group Purchasing. “Headquartered in Kent, Ohio, County Fire Protection now offers CHAMPS GPO discounts on all of their fire and life safety product sales and services. County Fire Protection is uniquely focused on training and education. The new Mobile Training Trailer conveniently brings their expertise to a member’s doorstep and allows technicians to train individuals in their own work environment.”

As most Healthcare companies know, fire and life-safety reporting is a hot button issue for CMS and all AHJ’s. County Fire Protection is the only company in Ohio that offers a web-based barcode management solution that exceeds the standards set by OSHA and the Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services requirements. Users can easily view, track and produce all Life Safety inspections at a moment’s notice to assure 100 percent compliance 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“We are extremely excited to announce our partnership with CHAMPS to offer ‘Best in Class‘ fire protection services to its members,” said John Lubinski, president, County Fire Protection. “County Fire Protection is an innovative market leader in fire and life safety services and we look forward to exceeding the expectations of its members.”
