It’s no question that the United States is currently suffering from an epidemic. More people than ever are suffering from addictions to drugs and alcohol. However, there are people taking steps to try and help those who have been affected, and one such example is within a Columbus fire department where life-saving vending machines may be able to help.
Medicines Dispensed from Life-Saving Vending Machines
These life-saving vending machines, rather than dispensing any kind of snack or drink, offer medicine in order to aid those on the job. The “18 vending machines that paramedics and firefighters will have to use when restocking medic units with drugs.” Put simply, there will be more convenient access to medications that might be high in demand… though without the danger of easy access.
To prevent the abuse of these vending machines and their contents, the system is very secure in how it is run and monitored. Not only are all transactions reported, but to even get your hands on something from the machine, you need a unique ID code and potentially even a fingerprint scan. In short, vital medicines will be on hand in order to get to the people that need them, but those who might abuse the supply are prevented from doing so within this in-depth security system.
Its functionality means that these potentially life-saving vending machines “also will track inventory and expiration dates so that the proper division can be alerted when the machine needs to be restocked or expired drugs need to be removed.” There is great accountability and secure procedures in place so that everyone follows the rules and can get access to products to ease the pains that come with injuries associated with the job.
Firefighters in Columbus might not be the only ones to benefit from these vending machines before long.
