When Every Second Counts: Intelligent Technology Sparks Safer And Faster Fire Response

Improve Fireground Safety And Efficiency With Clear, Reliable And Intelligent Communications

From command to the front line, your firefighters put their lives on the line every single day. Yet, they are under constant stress and pressure from a lack of critical personnel, resources and funding to be their best. A shocking 65 percent of departments lack basic tools such as water-resistant radios for their firefighters, and 39 percent of all fire departments do not have enough personal alert safety system (PASS) devices to equip all personnel on shift, according to the 2010 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Needs Assessment Survey. Meanwhile, accountability remains a challenge on the fireground – and thus continues to be a major safety concern. To address these challenges, you need purpose-built equipment that delivers clear, reliable voice and data communications both indoors and out. You need better information about the situation and incident surroundings to enable greater safety and effectiveness. And you need a platform that enables seamless integration of intelligence into every single response.

Connected EMS
Improving Patient Outcomes

When the lives of citizens are at stake, every second counts. Having the right information at the incident scene and en route to the hospital can help maximize the golden hour and save lives. By equipping emergency medical services first responders with solutions that let them stream video, access information and collaborate in real-time while in the field, they will be able to make smarter decisions and ensure better patient outcomes.

Maximize The Golden Hour: Saving Seconds Means Saving Lives

The “Golden Hour” typically refers to the time frame identified by medical and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) professionals as the crucial period in which beginning of treatment for heart attack and stroke victims should occur for greatest chance of survival. EMS professionals recognize that no matter what the emergency – whether heart attack or stroke or injuries due to accident, fire, street violence and more – every second is invaluable. The ability to arrive on scene quickly and immediately establish a bidirectional exchange of information between the incident scene, doctors and the hospital emergency department is critical in saving lives.

Faster, Informed Responses Create Improved Outcomes

Public safety grade communications enable EMS to speed response and meet their goals of reducing the time for treatment to begin, resulting in improved outcomes and survival rates. Our Connected EMS solutions give your emergency medical responders real-time access to crucial patient information and situational conditions, empowering them to make faster, smarter decisions prior to arrival, on the scene and en route to the hospital.
