Real-Time Wireless Incident Command Data, Gas, Radiation Detection Delivered to Tablets and Smartphones

RAE Systems Inc. has announced that as part of its ongoing commitment to enhances afety and increase real-time fireground/hazmat incident knowledge for first responders, will demonstrate its wireless gas and radiation detection monitor data in a browser-based “connected threat detection” environment at the Fire Department Instructor Conference (FDIC) at Booth #714.

During the conference, RAE Systems will demonstrate fire and hazmat gas and radiation detection innovations, including data delivered to iPad and Android tablets and browser-enabled smartphones. The real-time gas and radiation detection information, location, person-down alarms, and biometric data can be viewed 24/7/365 for advanced incident command, multidepartment response, and fireground detection.

The real-time data will be reported from the company’s portable ToxiRAE Pro single-gas monitors, new QRAE 3 4-gas monitors, MultiRAE multithreat detectors, GammaRAE II R radiation detectors, AreaRAE transportable multigas and radiation instruments, a BioHarness biometric device, and third-party instruments.

RAE Systems will also demonstrate for the first time its new QRAE 3 wireless 4-gas monitor, with a newly announced AutoRAE 2 bump and calibration cradle and holster case.

At FDIC, attendees will also be able to test their fireground detection skill in a live, interactive situational game-console at the RAE Systems booth. Entrants will be timed on how fast they complete the course and determine what gases and concentration levels are present. FDIC attendees can also get hands-on use training of the RAE Systems ToxiRAE 3 single-gas CO monitor that has recently saved human and animal lives by both the Chicago and Arvada, Colo. fire departments.

Real-Time Data-Driven Incident Command
With RAE Systems’ ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System, situational data obtained by multiple responder teams can be instantaneously shared securely through the Internet to aid mission control, simplify the coordination of joint operations, and allow remote experts to be added to the operation in real time.

The ProRAE Guardian system provides a “mobile command center” for incident responders to remotely monitor toxic industrial chemicals/toxic industrial materials (TICs/TIMs), flammable gases, chemical warfare agents (CWA), radiation, meteorological conditions, GPS-based location information and the physiological condition of responders.

“It’s imperative that first responders have access to the most up-to-date, technologically advanced gas and radiation detection systems to deliver more predictive incident command, and to ensure the safety of themselves and the public,” says Thomas Negre, vice president of products and marketing for RAE Systems. “The ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System, combined with the QRAE 3, MultiRAE, ToxiRAE Pro, AreaRAE, and radiation monitors provides emergency responders and incident commanders, as well as remediation experts, with instant access to threat data directly on their mobile devices. This aids them in mission coordination, solution speed and ultimately helps save lives.”

Attendees can also schedule a personalized fireground / incident command wireless gas/radiation detection assessment at FDIC with a RAE Systems Customer Success Team Member. RAE Systems will help hazmat, fire, and EMS leaders determine the best strategies for assessment, deployment and scene control, incident command, fireground and zone hazard and plume boundaries, overhaul and decon measurement – with hands-on product demonstrations.
