Emergency Preparedness

Byer Manufacturing Co. is the oldest supplier of folding cots in the United States. Since 1880 we have been proud of our product, and even prouder of the organizations who value our quality brand.

We supplied the United States armed forces during WWI and WWII, as well as the Korean War. The Red Cross and other NGO's, as well as local, state, and federal municipalities from across America and the world have turned to Byer cots for generations for emergency preparedness and disaster relief.

Our current offering of emergency preparedness cots are produced in carefully selected factories under our supervision. They adhere to the same design integrity, attention to detail, and quality of product for which Byer has been know for over 130 years.

At Byer, we have the capability to tailor a cot to fit your specific needs and budget. Byer is a source for other emergency preparedness accessories such as IV poles, special needs backrest, privacy screens, and wool emergency blankets.

Due to the high volume of shipments that we process, we have negotiated favorable shipping rates with a number of carriers and we can pass those savings on to you.
