Wearable devices & sensors to track & communicate responder health

What type of biometric fabrics and sensors can be integrated with responder uniforms and personal protective equipment in order to track and communicate responder health?


- What will the technology achieve?


- How can health data be transmitted among responders? Between responders and dispatch? Between responders and incident command?


- What environmental factors (temperature, moisture, etc.) do devices need to be able to withstand and what's available now that meet those needs?
