RFID (radio frequency identification) specialist Red Ledge has formed a joint venture with fire and crisis management technology consultancy BSG Command Systems to launch iSCOPE, an incident sector command-level system that uses RFID tags to constantly track firefighter locations, breathing apparatus air levels and other equipment assets in real-time across all zones of any incident.

iSCOPE can also be used in other public safety and security environments requiring incident asset management. RFID-driven tracking applications in policing include scenes of crime, chain of evidence and the management and tracking of police firearms.

RFID’s wireless technology does not require a line of site and can be used in extreme conditions. iSCOPE uses a quick-deploy portal to scan incoming and outgoing firefighters for the data held on their uniform or helmet RFID tag, which identifies them and also determines whether they have the skillset for the incident tasks they have been assigned. The system records all Airwave and other communications at an incident and can also be used to call up the latest health and safety documentation for at-incident reference.
