Homeland Security Group International Announces Initial Contract to Supply Medical Equipment to US Border Patrol

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) - Colonel Jeffrey A. Powers, CEO of Homeland Security Group International (PINKSHEETS: HMSG), announced today that HMSG has been awarded a contract to provide medical first responder kits to the US Border Patrol in the San Diego Region.

"This purchase of 100 medical first responder bags by the US Border Patrol signifies the culmination of over one year of hard work designing a first responder medical kit specifically for Border Patrol BORESTAR medics," commented Colonel Powers.

The Medical first responder kit is a vital tool for medical personnel being trained as first responders by the San Diego regional trainers. The design of this kit is a collaboration of HMSG designers and US Border Patrol medical trainers. Developed specifically with the Border Patrol medical personnel in mind, the responder kits provide teams with essential tools to aid them in the accomplishment of their mission. By their order, the US Border Patrol is demonstrating their faith in our products. "We have stated before that our business is about increasing the effectiveness of all first responders. This product will aid our first responders in getting their job done and help them safe lives. That's exactly what it's all about and we will continue to introduce products and technologies that meet our goals of providing our men and women with the best equipment available," concluded Powers.
