It’s 9-11.  The CommandWear team is not only remembering those heroes that saved so many people and gave their lives for the cause but are doing our part to help responders track their team members and enhance interoperability to minimize losses.
Responders need better tools to do their job – safely.  Too often we see the results of budget cuts.  Fewer responders expected to do more with antiquated technology (can you say “flip phones”).  I have found that the general public are literally shocked when they find out responders don’t have at least the same tracking and messaging capabilities that they do on their smart phone.  Complex, proprietary and expensive solutions are not the answer. Creative, open and low cost mobile and wearable solutions are starting to change the game and field tests are proving they are effective.
A shout out to those who protect us.
