Fire & EMS Mobile Data Solution
When emergencies occur and lives are at stake, it is important that first responders quickly assess the situation and take appropriate actions. To accomplish this, fire/EMS departments need to provide personnel with solutions to ensure fast response times and superior patient care. This often can involve multiple devices from multiple vendors, which can be costly to purchase, integrate and maintain. Above all, these devices must work reliably 24/7 and be tough enough to withstand bumps, shocks, vibration, humidity, liquids and extreme temperatures. To help firefighters and EMS crews perform their duties quickly and efficiently, the Panasonic Toughbook® 31 and Toughbook 19 are the ideal choices for rugged and reliable mobile computing.
Mounted to the front of an ambulance or fire engine, the Toughbook 31 and Toughbook 19 are MIL-STD-810G- and IP66-certified, providing unrivaled ruggedness and drop shock protection. Able to withstand moisture, humidity and weather extremes, they protect critical, time-sensitive data from loss resulting from any possible hardware damage. In addition, with sunlight viewability and anti-glare and anti-reflective screen treatments, the Toughbook 31 and Toughbook 19 provide rescue workers with a clear view of critical data, no matter how bright the conditions. For nighttime operation, the display's brightness can be quickly dialed down and the backlit keyboard helps ensure typing accuracy.
Running the Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ Processor and with optional 3G or 4G LTE mobile broadband, the Toughbook 31 and Toughbook 19 enable firefighters and first responders to gain real-time access to mission-critical information such as patient data and medical history, street maps and coordinates, and building profiles and schematics. All this vital data enables rescue workers to prepare in advance, improving response time.
Incident Command Solution
When disaster strikes, access to vital information and the ability to organize it quickly are critical to a successful outcome. Personnel, equipment and vehicles from more than one department may respond to a call; coordination of these resources can be a challenge. Traditionally, a whiteboard and waterproof paper have been used to organize an emergency response and provide accountability. However, this is a slow and cumbersome method just when speed and efficiency are required.
Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computers such as the Toughbook 31 and Toughbook 19 , are engineered to withstand the rigors — including the often-associated harsh weather — of emergency situations. Using specialized software that organizes, lists, tracks and assigns resources, Toughbook laptops can help battalion chiefs more effectively manage a response effort when downtime is not an option. Because Toughbook computers offer embedded, robust wireless connectivity, law enforcement, fire/EMS, hazmat and other departments can communicate and coordinate more efficiently to save lives and property.
