Everything StartsWith A TAG
TAG is the foundation of INTELLIGENT ACCOUNTABILITY™. Quickly create interoperable IDs through SalamanderLive™ or create event-specific badges to identify people in the field with our RAPID TAG solutions. The TAG solutions enable Salamander users to instantly TRACK identified resources (people & equipment) throughout events.
Our TAGS are categorized into five (5) types: Responder, Equipment, Collections (Teams), Patients, and Civilians. When viewing the common operating picture during an event, one is able to see the difference in resources: The resources that help vs. the ones that may need help.
Finally, add the ability to secure the event by validating the authenticity of each credential and the status of each resource.
- What is a TAG or Credential?
- What is INTEROPERABILITY?
- Are there any TAG Standards out there?
- What can be a TAG or Credential?
A credential is defined as: a document or certificate proving a person’s identity or qualifications.
- In our case, the credential is more than a Unique Identifier that links to a profile
- With our credentialing, we provide the ability to read it through a QR code
- We place it on whatever needs to be identified
- In our world, we credential more then just people, but also equipment and assets
- Then we track that credential . . .
Interoperability is taking credentials and providing an environment where we make them as well as associated data accessable across organizations and accounts.
- Resource information is stored in the QR code, creating a mobile database, containing name, title, organization, qualifications, and certifications
- Any organization with Salamander tracking solutions can scan any other organization’s Salamander credentials
- The information is accessible in a comms-out environment
- Multiple organizations can account for their own, and each other’s, resources during the same event
Absolutely! Salamander follows and provides TAG standards in template form based on the type of organization. Simply select the correct template and hit print.
A TAG or Credential is really a token. With Salamander, a TAG can be any media type. Whether that is a standard ID badge, a smart card used in conjunction with access control, a sticky label, a wristband, or even an 8.5x11 roster or placard. We can even turn A mobile device into a credential.
Whether you're tagging responders, equipment, patients / clients, or animals, we can be used with the media type that best fits your needs.
Credentials contain the proprietary QR code that stores information to work in a comms-out environment. The QR code also links to the profile of the resource in SalamanderLive.
A mobile credential that is always up to date and provides the ability to geolocate through GIS.
The ability to TAG all resources that are not already in your system and connect them to SalamanderLive. This includes visitors, volunteers, mutual aid, etc.
