little question that one of the most pressing challenges
facing fire, rescue service and other first responder

Until now, accountability has typically been achieved
through such manual processes as the collection of tags
and the use of status boards, which consume precious
resources when time is of the essence. These manual
methods are also prone to error and ineffective when
means of identification are misplaced, stolen, lost or
Now, with SafeScene, automatic, error-proof and
cost-effective accountability and resource management is
possible for the first time.
SafeScene is a system that
detects and monitors personnel and equipment at emergency incidents.
The system uses lightweight RFID (radio frequency identification) tags
that can go in personnel protective equipment, pockets or helmet crowns and a simple
software application that provides complete information about the status

SafeScene is the world's
only fully automatic accountability system. Personnel do not

including falling structures or newly-arriving and moving vehicles and
