JUPITER, Fla., April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- GelTech Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GLTC) is pleased to announce that the Fire Department of Holliston, Massachusetts has agreed to use FireIce in two of the department's four engine companies. In connection with this test program, the department will be sharing data with GelTech for each fire event, which will highlight the instances where FireIce is used.
"We are excited to be working with Chief Cassidy and the Holliston Fire Department," stated Michael Reger, president of GelTech. "We are confident the data we gather from this joint effort will demonstrate that using FireIce will reduce the time needed to suppress fires, resulting in less fire department time on scene and less water usage, thus reducing costs to the department, reducing property damage and improving safety for department personnel."
"For several years, the Holliston Fire Department has been focused on performance management to make more efficient use of municipal resources. Gathering field data for GelTech Solutions seemed like a natural partnership," explained Holliston Fire Chief Michael Cassidy.
