First responders are facing challenges never before imagined. The once unthinkable threat of radiological, biological or chemical contamination of our civilian population is now a reality. To successfully manage these incidents new strategies and tactics must be developed. The triage tag developed by Disaster Management Systems provides first responders with a tool to identify, process, and triage contaminated patients. The tag also provides rescue personnel with a means to tag and identify clothing and other personal property.
It should be emphasized that any hazardous materials release is a potential crime scene. Tagging of evidence in the form of clothing and personal effects will aid law enforcement in their investigation.
