ER Urgent Care Centers Joins Statewide Hurricane Taskforce

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - August 22, 2007) - ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUC) has joined a statewide hurricane preparedness taskforce. With the arrival of Hurricane Dean to the Caribbean, ER Urgent Care Center has once again joined state and local officials to ready for the hurricane season. A short time ago ERUC received significant recognition from state, county and city officials for remaining open during Hurricane Wilma. Wilma caused major damage in the South Florida area. ERUC, along with its generators, remained open to assist in the relief efforts. Local police and fire rescue praised ERUC and its employees, who were also experiencing their own disasters, for their help during this crisis. "Our lobby was full moments before and after Wilma passed. From police officers needing suturing for abrasions, to individuals with sprains, concussions and many other medical needs," said Jerry Miller, ERUC founder. Hospital emergency rooms during this crisis were overwhelmed with major trauma and could not handle other types of medical emergencies. This year ERUC will once again be there for the South Florida, Tampa and Saint Petersburg communities in the event of a hurricane. Local media and city officials will alert the community as to ERUC's availability during any crisis. We are very proud of our medical staff for participating in these efforts.
