NARP’s WALK(click to view full) In the field, time counts. The right emergency medical care, coupled with equipment that makes rapid evacuation possible, can easily be the difference between life and death. To that end, small business qualifier North American Rescue Product, Inc. in Greenville, SC won a maximum $31.9 million fixed price with economic-price-adjustment contract for litters, medical kits, accessories and similar products for the US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. Their products include the Combat Casualty Response Kit(R), the WALK(TM) Warrior Aid & Litter Kit built around their Talon II(R) Model 90 litter, et. al. Unlike the Skedco SK-200 BRS, the Talon cannot be dragged in hands-free mode and takes up more room on one’s back; even so, the integrated system is a step forward. This is an indefinite-quantity/ indefinite-delivery type contract with a 5 year base and 5 more 1-year options; the contract will end on February 5, 2012. There were 455 proposals solicited, and 31 responded to the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP) in Philadelphia, PA (SPM200-07-D-8260).
