The MedFire Innovations, Inc. Story
MedFire Innovations was founded by Gregory Christmas and was formally incorporated in California in 2016. MedFire was established to develop simple products that would help protect patients and patient care providers, protecting those who work in the business of protecting others. After a long career in emergency services, Christmas realized that the development of simple and easy to use products that would assist in the day-to-day operations of those working on the front lines of emergency medical services could transform safety and personal experience – so it became MedFire’s original mission to encourage development of innovative products.
Christmas’ decision to launch MedFire was heavily influenced by his decades-long career in emergency services; he had been employed as a Fire Captain – Paramedic, and during the routine processes of repetitively cleaning equipment used in the field to aid in the treatment of patients, Greg Christmas realized there was a need to provide a clean barrier between the equipment and the patients and provider. Such a barrier would reduce exposure to harmful pathogens. The challenge was to come up with a simple and effective method to provide this protective surface barrier. From that challenge, and the successful development of that device to answer that call, MedFire Innovations was born.
The development and successful patenting of our first product, our protective barrier device, Path-O-Wrap® required us to develop a successful business process from ideation to execution that we formalized into an organization (MedFire Innovations) offering that support and structure to fellow innovators. Parent company MedFire Innovations rapidly expanded to the three divisions we have today: MedFire Innovations, providing and supporting the development of market-driven products and services to medical, health, public safety, and other care environments; MedFire Jobs, an online hiring platform; and MedFire Expo, and online business marketplace to support the networking and growth of companies developing products and services withing this sector.
Born From a Single Idea….
MedFire Innovations was born from a single idea: After creating our first product, we experienced firsthand the immense value in developing key relationships and having access to strategic resources. We originally began by developing, manufacturing, and bringing to market our own innovative ideas in the form of additional products and services, then expanded our services to include helping other innovators in our market space to create their own products and devices through a custom collaboration process. MedFire has gone from our single product idea into a company that multiplied that successful business model, rapidly expanding into a diverse company focused on serving those who provide for – and protect others.
MedFire Innovations is comprised of various divisions focused on developing products, devices, and services for our company and for others. The three distinct divisions of MedFire are all tied together by a commitment to Help Those Who Are In The Business Of Helping Others. MedFire has cultivated a vast network of creative and innovative experts to help develop great ideas move from concept to tactical reality. We have created a Culture of Innovation by sharing ideas and concepts within this network of biomedical, mechanical, and electrical engineers; manufacturers; packaging experts; technical and regulatory specialists; sales and marketing professionals; and other key experts, all with one goal in mind – To Bring Innovations To Life.
