11/16/2004 - Aegis Assessments Inc. (OTCBB: AGSI) announced that it is showcasing its new SafetyNet(TM) Guardian(TM) System at the inaugural FireRescue Magazine Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas. Participants at the exposition include the International Society of Fire Service Instructors (ISFSI), the Nevada Fire Chiefs Association (NFCA) and the Emergency Vehicle Technicians Association (EVTA), as well as manufacturers and suppliers of the latest fire-rescue products and innovations.
The SafetyNet(TM) Guardian(TM) System is a portable wireless tracking device that uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to monitor the location and physical condition of emergency personnel at the scene of an emergency incident. RFID technology uses radio-transmitting interrogators to send out radio waves to preprogrammed receiver computer chips which respond to the radio query with another radio signal. If the frequency is not correct, the receiver or interrogator will not recognize it.
The SafetyNet(TM) Guardian(TM) System includes helmet-mounted RFID tags that can be programmed to transmit personnel information, including name, rank, training, and other department-specific information. Features currently in development include bio-sensor monitors for heart rate, body temperature and blood oxygen levels.
The fire and life safety industry is a $20 billion to $25 billion global industry that supplies both public and private consumers. The increased emphasis on enforcement of safety regulations and building and fire codes, coupled with the development of new technologies that allow the integration of life safety systems with security systems, is expected to fuel continued growth in the industry.
