Safety State of Mind
Frazer Safety

Frazer enrolls in the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Challenge Program, as part of its continued commitment to worksite safety. VPP certification signifies the highest level of safety possible in the workplace. It usually takes three years to meet the OSHA standards required to attain elite VPP status. Frazer is up for the challenge.

Hospital Corporation of America
Hospital Corporation of America

Seeing PHI’s success with their training unit, North Hills Hospital & HCA call Frazer with a request for a generator-powered EMS module. The North Hills unit is fully loaded with customized options: a universal remote control, a METIman® (patient simulator), and even a Wii™ console.

Hydraulic Lifts
Hydraulic Lift Gates

Frazer first added the hydraulic lift to a Montgomery County EMS vehicle way back in 2000. Almost a decade later, the lift makes a comeback in two units: a multipurpose lift for Metro Ambulance and a pediatric lift for isolettes in four Texas Children’s Hospital (Kangaroo Crew) units.

Women’s Business Enterprise
Woman Owned Business

Frazer gains certification from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the largest third-party certifier of women-owned businesses. Frazer is also certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise Alliance (WBEA) and the City of Houston Office of Business Opportunity.

The One Stop Truck Shop
Truck Shop

Frazer identifies a need to streamline the workflow on trucks and decides to build a new shop for this purpose. With the arrival of the one stop truck shop, in-progress units no longer have to be moved around frequently during production. This adds a new degree of efficiency to the process.

A New Paint Shop
Paint Shop

Frazer is growing rapidly. As volume increases, a single paint booth proves to be a bottleneck. Frazer installs a new paint booth, making it possible to paint two units simultaneously.

Medical Transport Units
Medical Tranpost Unit

Frazer builds transport units for the UTMB Correctional Managed Care, customized with a metal cage and steel brackets. These units are used to transport ailing inmates to and from nearby medical facilities for treatment. The 12-foot module can comfortably fit 5-7 people, while the 14-foot unit can transport 7-9 people at the same time.

UCV: The Next Generation
2006 UCV

Frazer adds to the existing UCV line. This bigger UCV is equipped with a taller box and larger compartments. It can accommodate more rescue personnel and first response equipment. It has the added benefit of an on-board generator.

Lights, Camera, FrazerCast!
2006 podcast

As demand for online content grows, a podcast series seems like the next logical step. Enter FrazerCast, a video platform for vendor interviews, trade shows, and lots more.

Training Medics
Training Medics

Frazer builds two multimedia training units for PHI Air Medical. These modules help provide education and simulated clinical experiences for medics, students, and firefighters.

Cutting Edge Computing
Frazer Server

With only a switch and a server to power the network, the first incarnation of Frazer’s server room is limited but functional. As the company evolves, however, the server room expands in content and capacity. Today, it hosts several virtual and physical servers, as well as an open source system that fuels the collaborative process at Frazer.

Movin’ In
Frazer Office

As growth continues, Frazer decides to construct a new main office. This building serves as home to striping and lettering, MIS, human resources, sales, marketing, and accounting.

Time for Expansion

Looking to expand in-house production, Frazer opens an aluminum fabrication facility. This 20,000 sq. ft. shop is outfitted with several new CNC machines.

Going Wood-free
EMS welding

One of Frazer’s trademark features has always been the double structural tubing found in every corner of the generator-powered EMS module. In 2005, Frazer goes a step further by making its units completely wood-free.

Express Delivery
EMS Fleet

After receiving a grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Houston Fire Department decides to invest in a fleet of emergency vehicles. HFD orders 21 Frazer generator-powered EMS modules. Frazer builds and delivers all 21 vehicles within 60 days, a company record at the time.

Heating Up
2004 kbr

Frazer builds resilient, heavy-duty units for KBR. These bad boys are fully capable of operating in extreme heat temperatures and are loaded with 220V 50 Hz electrical outlets. The KBR modules also have the distinction of being the first emergency Frazer units built for overseas use. Some of them are flown to the Middle East on a chartered Antonov aircraft.

Striping & Lettering
striping and lettering

Once upon a time, Frazer relied on independent contractors for its striping and lettering needs. Seeing an opportunity to expand in-house production, Frazer decides to create a striping and lettering department. It starts out with a single-color vinyl cutter and soon blossoms into a full-time service employing a staff of graphic artists.

Embracing the Web

Frazer seeks to harness the power of the Internet by launching a new website. Many projects would flood in over the years, expanding Frazer’s reach and laying the groundwork for the future.

A Whole New Product
League City EMS

The Frazer Urban Command Vehicle features six compartments, each with adjustable shelves and a vast middle section capable of carrying at least 20 backboards and a Stokes basket. In other words, way more carrying capacity than an SUV. Plus, the body is remountable.

A Whole New Product
2000 Frazer

Having already built two generator-powered EMS modules for the League City Emergency Medical Service, Frazer is approached by its director, John Accomando, to work on a new project. He wants to mount a multi-function body on an extended cab/chassis. The result: the first Frazer Urban Command Vehicle.

Movin’ Up
Frazer Facility

A piece of land becomes available, giving Frazer, Inc. a much needed chance for expansion. Noting a continuing increase in sales activity and interest both in-state and around the country, Frazer decides to build a new production facility. The building has an immediate impact across all phases of production.

Movin’ Out

An ad in an EMS publication piques the interest of Dale Stidham, a volunteer with the Big Stone Gap Rescue Squad. His inquiry leads to a road trip to Southwest Virginia for John Griffin, Jr. to demo the generator-powered module. Thoroughly impressed, the squad would later take delivery of the first two units to be found “On the Trail of the Lonesome Pine.” Frazer is now a national phenomenon.

QVM Certified
QVM Certified

Frazer applies for Ford’s QVM (Qualified Vehicle Modifier) program. QVM certification requires such criteria as engineering and manufacturing processes that meet Ford’s quality control guidelines. Frazer clears the QVM requirements and gains certification.

Northward Ho!

EMS-043 belongs to the Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport Department of Public Safety. The generator-powered concept takes a big step forward into a region outside of Greater Houston. The exposure at one of America’s busiest airports with an outstanding fleet maintenance department proves invaluable.

Real Production Begins
1985 houston fire department

What started out as four or five vehicles quickly turns into an order for 30 Frazer EMS modules. This marks the beginning of a robust relationship with the Houston Fire Department. Over the next two decades, HFD would go on to convert its fleet to 100-plus generator-powered units.

Real Production Begins

The Kingwood Area EMS service, headed by Mike Legoudes, places an order for what would be Frazer job number EMS-001.

What’s Good for the Goose

Captain Ron Champagne notes that at least eight of the nation’s largest ambulance manufacturers have told him such a thing could not be done or would not work. Mr. Griffin tells Captain Champagne it is simply a matter of configuring the module to come up with the appropriate space.

What’s Good for the Goose
