Why Firefighter Tracking Systems Are Important

On any incident ranging from small brush fires to large commercial structure fires, it is crucial for fire department Safety Officers and Incident Commanders to know where their firefighters are at all times. Being able to keep track of crew assignments in real time helps fire chiefs make decisions that contribute to smooth fire ground operations. More importantly, though, personnel accountability systems, like the ones manufactured by American Trade Mark Co., play an important role in ensuring firefighter safety and preventing first responder deaths.

According to NIOSH, many firefighter line of duty deaths and injuries were attributable in part to a lack of or incorrect use of a PAS. In those tragedies, firefighters became disoriented in smoky conditions, were trapped, or had radio failures. An on-scene firefighter tracking system would have alerted Incident Commanders that personnel were missing and would have assisted Rapid Intervention Teams in locating and rescuing the downed firefighters and EMS crews. For over a decade, American Trade Mark Co. has assisted career and volunteer fire departments across the United States in preventing these types of deadly scenarios through our various lines of Incident Command and Accountability Systems.

Types of On-Scene Firefighter Tracking Products

There are many components to firefighter tracking systems. Some are traditional, including firefighter accountability tags and passport systems. Others include GPS technology tied into firefighter radio systems. In recent years, new technologies have emerged overcoming the problems associated with GPS systems, namely that satellite transmissions fail in certain types of buildings and cannot pinpoint a firefighter’s exact location in multi-story buildings. These new RFID Firefighter Tracking Systems employ lightweight ID tags attached to the firefighter’s gear, portable readers, and Incident Command computer software. This type of accountability system can tell fireground commanders exactly where each of their firefighters are in real time.

On-scene firefighter tracking equipment that uses radio frequency identification gives Incident Commanders valuable information about their crews’ progress during an emergency and helps to orchestrate mutual aid and multi-agency response. In case a firefighter becomes trapped or injured, your fire department’s RIT will know exactly where to go to rescue them, saving valuable minutes and seconds that could mean the difference between life and death.
