The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) has implemented the ORAL I.V. hydration aid product across multiple specialty units county-wide. The deployment includes SWAT, K9, EOD, HIDTA, Lake Patrol, Search and Rescue, HSU, VCU, CAST, and the Animal Crimes Unit.
The MCSO has received its initial order for 1,500 ORAL I.V. four-packs and will be issuing the product to approximately 200 deputies and detectives for use in training and missions. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office is a fully integrated law enforcement agency and serves one of the largest jurisdictions in the country, comprising 9,200 square miles and over 4 million residents.
"Our office and specifically our SWAT team have found ORAL I.V. to be a very useful and effective product," said Deputy Mike Puente, sniper instructor for the SWAT team. "ORAL I.V. has allowed our team to stay on task despite extreme temperatures and extended hours in the heat. It immediately hydrates and allows us to proceed with the mission at hand."
ORAL I.V. is a hydration aid based on a proprietary formula of crystalloid electrolytes in purified water. ORAL I.V. is intended to assist an individual's existing hydration strategy and can be used along with water in any environment, condition or situation where physical exertion or the possibility of dehydration exists. ORAL I.V. does not contain any sugars, caffeine or stimulants, or artificial ingredients. The product is packaged in lightweight, individual 15 mL vials so it can easily be included in tactical kits.
