GREENVILLE, S.C., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Contract Award Services is pleased to announce that Speer Operational Technologies, LLC (SPEER) has been awarded a GSA Schedule 84 contract (GS-07F-016BA) and are now certified to supply Evacuation Devices, Fire Suppression Devices, an Abdominal Aortic Tourniquet, and Operational Rescue Systems and Components to governmental agencies. SPEER has placed their Cold Fire non-toxic fire suppression device and their Abdominal Aortic Tourniquet (AAT) on GSA Advantage!(®), the government's electronic ordering system.

"We are extremely excited to have our products on GSA Advantage; we have over $6500 dollars in sales directly off of our schedule in less than 90 days." states Chris Crossley, Military Program Manager at Speer Operational Technologies, LLC.

SPEER is the US Military distributor of a unique Fire Suppression Device: Cold Fire(TM) All Season Blend (CFASB). CFASB immediately suppresses fires and prevents re-ignition of any material including tire fires, fuel fires, magnesium and other chemical fires. CFASB cools surfaces instantly on contact and can be sprayed directly onto an individual's skin to create a thermal heat barrier, all while suppressing the fire and allowing time to accomplish the rescue. Cold Fire(TM) is available in an individual 13.5 Ounce fire suppression device or a 1.5 gallon backpack mounted fire suppression cylinder.

John Warren, President with Contract Award Services declares: "Working with clients such as SPEER and securing their GSA in less than 3 months is a true testament to the processors - they validated our leadership position with regard to GSA processing of documents and secured a schedule for our client that usually takes well over a year to get through the governmental review process." Contract Award Services managed the tender process on behalf of SPEER facilitating the application preparation, submission and negotiations with government buyers at the GSA. Mr. Warren continues: "We are committed to assisting small and medium-sized businesses with effective, turn-key solutions that enhances their competitive edge in gaining access to government spending."
