Fire Departments Use Zebra Technology for Emergency Response Tracking
Tuesday, September 25, 2018 | Comments

Battalion 3 Technologies (BATTE) selected Zebra Technologies’ rugged tablet to deliver its digital Incident Command (ICx) and Fire Roster software to first responders nationwide.

Xplore Technologies recently acquired Zebra and collaborated with BATT3 to refine and deploy the accountability solution across public-safety agencies in North America. Several fire departments — including the Northern Lakes Fire District, Coeur d’Alene Fire Department, and Kootenai County Fire and Rescue in Idaho — increased the accuracy of their emergency response tracking, reduced safety risks, and streamlined command and control processes.

“With the XSLATE R12, we can easily keep track of 20-30 resources,” said Northern Lakes Fire District Chief Pat Riley. “My battalion commander can see and update each of the assignments on the one tablet display, no matter where he or she is on scene. Plus, the automatic notifications I receive on the tablet can literally save lives by preventing burnout, exhaustion and oversight. This solution finally enables us to maintain that frequent role call cadence for accountability. No other current tech or system can do this, not even the Passport tags, which are frequently lost on scene.”
