SCBA Control & Telemetry
Recent developments in radio networking technology has prompted me to revisit the subject of SCBA Telemetry. I have always held the belief that SCBA Control should be part of an overall incident command and control system. I am currently reestablishing links with interested parties with a view to creating a new generation of SCBA Telemetry.
I am hoping to work with SCBA Manufacturers and Incident Command system suppliers to develop a new generation of equipment that takes advantage of the advances in radio networking and to integrate SCBA Control and Telemetry in Incident Command & Control Software.
Indications are good, so watch this space........
I have taken on the Australian and New Zealand agency for an Incident Command system developed in the UK.
I took on this product as its a great example of what can be achieved when end users and developers work together.
The incident command system has a number of key features:
It was developed with the input of a steering committee consisting of twelve UK Metropolitan Fire Brigades
The same software can be used for both training and operations
Its 25,000 pounds a year with no limit on the number of users
Sad end to Siebe Gorman
Siebe Gorman Pty Ltd (a company with a history dating back nearly 200 years) was placed into liquidation last year by one of its creditors. Unfortunately the liquidation has left a number of creditors owed significant amounts of money.
Sad loss of an old friend and colleague
Long time friend and colleague Andy morrision pased away following a short illness. Andy was retired firefighter and ex Manager of Interspiro Asia Pacific. Andy and I have been friends for many years and have worked on a number of Breathing Apparatus projects together. Could always rely on Andy for a down to earth answer to a problem and his expertise was much valued.
Andy leaves behind a partner, children and grandchildren.
Andy you are sadly missed.
