Tri-Star Holdings, Inc. Completes Acquisition and First Prototype

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - Tri-Star Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TSHL) just announced that it inked a long awaited integration and launch plan for one of its acquired subsidiaries. Management believes that this milestone will have a dramatic impact on shareholder value and corporate growth.

The new division was named the "Emergence Response Services Division" (ERS), headed by Mr. Victor Adams, Chief Architect. After several months of diligent preparation and testing, the ERS team successfully completed an Emergency Response Unit (ERU) functioning as a temporary life support facility to be deployed in the event of disasters such as Katrina, devastating storm situations, homeland security issues, foreign war support and other areas. Several U.S. and international patents are expected and talks with private investors regarding commercialization are underway.

Mr. Matteis, the company's CEO, said: "This is a monumental achievement for maintaining life support in disaster and emergency management situations. The need for these types of facilities is evident and this plan fits with our personal testing products, lab services and pharmacy agenda. We plan to incorporate a mini-pharmacy and med labs in future designs. Mr. Adam's background with NASA (space life support projects) and his original Star Trek work with set life support facilities was a significant driver behind his life vision for these impressive facilities."

During an interview, Mr. Adams said: "After many years of effort, we are now in a position to offer an all new, proprietary lightweight polymer based facility approach that can be dropped on location and made fully functional in less than 24 hours with set-up time within one hour with power, lights, alternate energy sources, hydraulics and life support systems. I am excited to think that our facilities, built to support from 50 to 1000 individuals each, will finally be in place to save lives so disasters like Katrina and 9/11 will be dramatically less costly in terms of resources and human lives."

Future designs are on the drawing board and are expected to include an impressive range of support structures including medical, solar and wind energy solutions, modular interconnectivity, and integrated computer and communications technology. The first generation prototype and proof of concept will be unveiled at the 2009 Governor's Hurricane Conference in May. ( More on the Emergency Response Unit can be found at
