ResponderX was founded in 2015 to engineer technology-enhanced safety solutions for emergency services professionals operating in hazardous environments. The idea of ResponderX originated from the fallout of the tragic Knights of Columbus Hall fire in Bryan, Texas on February 15, 2013. On that evening, two firefighters were killed and two others injured while battling a blaze. Our founder, a fellow Firefighter, sought to find and develop technology solutions that could provide on-scene decision-makers access to more information to formulate better and faster tactical decisions. Our goal is to prevent deaths and serious injuries among the heroes who protect our community.
Developed by Firefighters for firefighters and other first responders, TaskForceTracker uses the latest technology to provide critical information such as location and condition of personnel to the Incident Commander and Safety officer. This wearable, standalone system does not interfere with existing technology used on emergency scenes and is completely independent of existing handheld radio communication. Information is processed on scene and sent to tablets which display information about each responder on scene, and the conditions of those in the hazard zone. Fully configurable, this system can alert the Incident Commander and Safety Officer of potential hazards and firefighter locations in the event of a Mayday situation. All proprietary system equipment manufactured and assembled in Texas.
The TaskForceTracker is a scale-able system, meaning that more wearable devices can be added or removed on the fly as response to an incident ramps up or demobilizes. The system is completely independent of radio repeaters or internet connectivity and can work in the most hostile environments including heavy structures or remote wilderness. This patent-pending system for first responders is currently undergoing extensive testing and development. Pilots with select agencies are beginning soon with general pilots and purchasing options available in the coming months.
The TaskForceTracker Advantage
The TaskForceTracker system is designed for use by Fire Departments, Law Enforcement, EMS Agencies, Military Units, and Civilian Emergency Response Teams. TaskForceTracker offers unique advantages over similar technology:
No lengthy setup
The system deploys automatically when units arrive on scene without "man traps" or beacons that have to be manually deployed.
No forgetting to turn on trackers
With a 4 week standby battery, wearable trackers are always-on so responders are tracked the moment they arrive on scene.
No gear-specific requirements
The wearable tracker is not integrated with an SCBA or other specific gear so the system can be used on a variety of emergency scenes or after SCBAs are doffed.
Independent radio system
The TaskForceTracker system does not rely on any existing radio systems or bulky radio modems and is free of FCC site licensing requirements.
Affordable and Robust
At a projected cost around $300 per responder, and with the wearable trackers meeting rigorous waterproofing, fireproofing, and shockproofing standards, this device is a must have for any emergency scene!
Founded by first responders, for first responders, ResponderX offers extensive product support and first-time training for customers.
