How the solution works:

There are three key components to a successful accountability protocol: identification resources (people and equipment), live-tracking, and reliable data collection. These are accomplished by automating existing processes to help paint an all-encompassing, real-time picture as the incident or event size and complexity change during an operational period. We call this INTELLIGENT ACCOUNTABILITY and it can be applied across government and private sectors, including fire and rescue, education, emergency management, event management, site security, law enforcement and others.

Salamander Technologies, LLC. enables organizations, individuals, and emergency response to have the information needed to make well-informed decisions in times of distress to ensure everyone goes home safely at the end of the day.

Industry Background

Identification, tracking, and monitoring are the core pillars of accountability; and are essential to the infrastructure for emergency response management. Emergency response management must always be prepared to manage any incident or event, planned or unplanned, and oversee accountability to mitigate possible situations and ensure the safety of others. However, standard accountability tools in the field do not enable response teams to meet expectations set by the government. Today, teams are set up to manage data, resources, and individuals manually, all of which obstruct and restrict situational awareness and reporting, and put on-scene individuals at risk.
