In the midst of an incident, incident commanders are inundated with tasks, distractions and information from numerous sources – all of which can impact decision-making. Responders can become lost, injured, in distress or worse. That’s why personnel accountability systems are one of the most important safety measures during an incident.
APX Personnel Accountability automates the accountability process. Using the existing ASTRO 25 two-way radio system, the solution monitors the P25 radio, and by extension the firefighter, to gain an understanding of each firefighter’s status without the need to wear additional equipment or deploy additional systems. Additionally, using APX Personnel Accountability, incident commanders can send alert notification and conduct role calls on the fireground without occupying radio traffic
