America's Emergency Network Installed in Broward County

South Florida's Two Largest Newspapers Also to Participate; AEN to Serve Nearly 2 Million Broward Residents; Miami-Dade and Other Counties Soon to Follow

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - August 7, 2008) - America's Emergency Network, Inc. (AEN), a wholly owned subsidiary of Brampton Crest International, Inc. (OTCBB: BRCI), today announced that it has installed its system in Broward County -- Florida's second most populous county.

The rapidly growing AEN system soon will serve Broward's 1.8 million residents with easily accessible emergency management messages, advisories and other communications. Miami-Dade, with 2.4 million residents, and other Florida counties are expected to follow soon.

In addition, South Florida's two largest newspapers -- The Miami Herald and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel -- are joining AEN's alert distribution network.

"We're thrilled that emergency managers, other officials in South Florida, and major elements of the media appreciate the value of our network and have decided to partner with us," said Bryan Norcross, AEN's president and chief executive officer. "This certainly provides further validation of our system, and we look forward to serving many more people in many more places in the near future."

Chuck Lanza, Broward's emergency management director, said he was pleased that AEN selected Broward County as an additional test bed for its system.

"It's in beta test mode and we saw how well it worked during previous tests at the state level," Lanza said. "It has a lot of potential for getting information out to the public, both when we have good Internet connections and when we have problems that only satellite transmission can resolve. This will give us two ways to reach and help the public."

Broward's emergency updates, news conferences and other information will be broadcast over AEN's satellite-based network and will be directly available to affected residents -- and anyone with an Internet connection -- through the websites of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and The Miami Herald.

In the future, these alerts and updates also will be sent directly to cell phones, PDAs and other mobile devices.

The system also has been installed in several other counties and at the state's Division of Emergency Management.

"We are growing at a very swift rate and we look forward to serving many more communities in the near future," Norcross said. "Stay tuned for additional announcements."

About AEN:

America's Emergency Network was designed by Bryan Norcross, former hurricane analyst for the CBS network, and Max Mayfield, the former Director of the National Hurricane Center. AEN's goal is to be sure that every emergency manager, whether from a large county or a small town, has an outlet to reach the public the media, and other government officials. The satellite-based AEN system is designed to continue to work after a disaster when the power lines, phone lines, cell phone towers, and terrestrial internet systems are knocked out. Note: All emergency messages transmitted through the AEN system fully conform to CAP, the FEMA-mandated national protocol for creating and sending emergency messages.
