Fire Service Management
Peoples’ lives are counting on the fire service. Having life saving equipment at the right place, time and condition is vital. Every fire truck is filled with hundreds of vital pieces of equipment, making it difficult to keep track of all of them.
What if there was a technology system that would enable you to instantly check the inventory and status of all your equipment? What if technology could help your team keep better track of their assets, while also freeing up time for other vital activities?
RFID is the Solution
One solution to the challenge of tracking Fire Service equipment is RFID, a technology system that can identify an object using radio waves. The reader transmits a signal to unique tags, which respond with product data. This enables your team to quickly and accurately take an inventory of valuable assets and equipment. Read on to find out more about the power of RFID.
Benefits of RFID
1. Time Savings
Time is valuable in the fire service. You want to maximize manpower to best protect the community. Taking inventory, while vital, can consume large chunks of firefighters’ time. This is where RFID comes in. In testing, RFID has been shown to be 25 times faster than Barcoding for taking RFID, counting up to 12,000 items per hour.
2. Inventory Accuracy
The cost of missing a vital piece of equipment on site can be devastating. That’s why it’s crucial to have an accurate inventory for each fire truck. RFID elminates human error and shines when it comes to inventory accuracy, with average inventory accuracy of 95-99%.
3. Locating items
With thousands of pieces of equipment to keep track of, it’s all too easy to misplace pieces of equipment, costing valuable time and money. There’s no need to worry about losing items with RFID. It enables you to quickly locate any item within the range of the reader and return it to its proper place.
