ERT Systems Presents at the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union Annual Health & Safety Conference

Ann Arbor, MI – (October 14, 2009) – ERT Systems, LLC, a leading provider of automated tracking systems for first responders, gave a presentation on personnel accountability at the 2009 Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union’s annual Health and Safety Conference.

ERT’s vice president and retired incident commander John Ellis gave a one-hour presentation on accountability and resource tracking, and how it directly affects the safety of fire fighters while deployed on scene. Following the presentation, John moderated a discussion on common personnel accountability systems. The conversation focused primarily on the frustration many fire departments experience trying to use the most popular tag systems.

At the end of the discussion, John hosted a live demonstration of OnSite ERTTM, which provides automatic, real-time accountability and continuous tracking via radio tags carried by each firefighter. Portable readers were placed at various locations inside the hotel, and a few attendees participated in the demonstration by walking around with the tags as OnSite ERT tracked their movement from zone to zone.

John also introduced the latest new service, ERT Central, which allows OnSite ERT users to automatically recognize emergency responders and resources from other agencies. John explained “ERT Central keeps up-to-date records of every responder registered in the OnSite ERT network: locally, nationally, and even internationally. This gives the on-scene commander full and immediate access to the vital detail they need, especially at larger, more difficult events.”

The goal of the Annual Health & Safety Conference is to inform MPFFU members about current fire department health and safety issues. The annual event occurred on October 5th & 6th this year, and was held at the Marriott Auburn Hills Pontiac at Centerpoint.
