RAE Systems to Highlight Hazardous Environment Detection Solutions At Fire Department Instructor's Conference

San Jose, California, UNITED STATES

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 31, 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- RAE Systems Inc. (OTCBB:RAEE), the hazardous environment detection company, today announced that it will be exhibiting at the Fire Department Instructor's Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana from April 3-5. RAE Systems' solutions are being used by many federal agencies, as well as state and municipal first responder organizations to provide life critical information to the men and women who routinely encounter hazardous gases or radiation.

RAE Systems will highlight many of the products currently being used by first responder organizations around the U.S., including New York State's Weapons of Mass Destruction Task Force. New York State selected RAE System's MultiRAE Plus as a part of their strategy of creating a standardized response to hazardous incidents. If a neighboring county needs assistance with an incident, response trailers can easily be transported to the location. This compatibility reduces training on equipment to a standard set and allows for a safer working environment for the users.

The MultiRAE Plus gas detector is a handheld, five-gas monitor with the capability to simultaneously read and display combustible gas levels, oxygen, and two toxic gases. It incorporates a photoionization detector (PID) for detecting toxic levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for the most complete protection in hazardous environments. The MultiRAE Plus' versatility enables it to replace a wide range of monitors, saving money on additional equipment purchases, training and maintenance costs. This instrument can be used as a personal monitor, a hand-held sniffer, or an area monitor for HAZMAT, emergency response, confined space entry, or industrial hygiene work. It can even be incorporated into RAE Systems Wireless Data system, which allows it to be placed in a hazardous location to send real-time information back for interpretation by coordination personnel who are safely removed from the dangerous situation.
