Description:

Upgrade to the ICM-TxR. It is a tracking system to be integrated into operations command. The system links the command computer to anyone wearing an SCBA (which is pretty much all interior). Even if you are not breathing air and your bottle is turnied on, command has you in his system with your name, team, operation, air pressure, time left, temperature, and average time you will have left based on consumption of air. The systems alarms at the command center when you set off your PASS or your PASS activates when you are unable. It is a valuable asset for RIT teams your brothers and sisters and the injured. It also allows the Command Center to send an evacuation signal to one person, the team, or the entire operations sector. It is a great product and will protect my guys whenever they are in the IDLH. It also has a program for determining the SCBA air usage for mutual aid departments in your scene who have not upgraded their packs.

    It's a Life Safety issue that protects my fire department family, including the red headed step-children.

    This is a really good idea. Why didn't we have these years ago?

    I think it's the best thing to come from MSA. I feel it will save alot of our brothers and sisters both in the fire and ems service.

    I've seen this product in a demo situation. Never in the field. My career department is taking delivery of 16 new MSA packs this year and hope we get a chance to use some of this new software.

    Our department just had this system integrated into our MSA SCBAs, and I have to say, I honestly couldn't believe it when I realized exactly how much our command DID NOT KNOW before!! These systems are such a great tool to use and will save many lives, also they are excellent for accountability for firefighters who are actively working the fireground.

    A product that should be intergrated in to all dept. My dept. is still using old MSA's with the trunk on the mask. so this would make a huge jump for us.

    im loving this idea im not understanding why in this day of computers why we cant all go to this system. we here in gloucester county nj are all dispatched by computer put on loc, time on loc , if on loc too long they know and get us going,if we dont respond fast enough they let us knowand send someone else. so why cant we monitor those guys inside. when my guys are inside i monitor them. i listen for their alarm, when they come out i make sure their fit for another bottle, and that everyone is safe, heres to everyone going to scba tracking system!
    what a great product now steping up and taking over what we humans having been doing for our brother and sisters that we care about.
