The Challenge (and Solution) Of Equipment Management For Response Teams


Emergency response organizations have many moving parts, from expensive and large inventories to ever-expiring equipment. Fortunately, there is a reliable and smart technology specifically developed for response organizations to manage all their specialized equipment.

A well-managed and tracked equipment inventory is not an easy task. Many special requirements and complex areas must be tracked, supervised and maintained.

The time-sensitive nature of the emergency response and the importance of getting the correct resources to the scene makes equipment management particularly challenging in an emergency context.

A lack of readiness can risk your mission with potentially fatal consequences. The slow deterioration of preparedness can creep through organizations, ultimately resulting in unavailability to respond. Great inefficiencies cost time, regulatory breaches costs money, and a failure in training can cost the lives of your personnel.

Response organizations have many moving parts with expensive and large inventories, and ever-expiring equipment. This equipment is a key factor to carry on their duties to save lives and properties. Equipment unfit for use can risk a mission.

Ensuring total readiness is a complex, but crucial task, often left to rely on risky methods such as spreadsheets, whiteboards, and other non-dedicated solutions.

Every good response has good readiness behind it. Advances in technology and data management mean that it has never been easier to manage all your organization’s equipment inventory data.

A powerful readiness system means being able to visualize the readiness of your entire organization in a single dashboard, and effective one will notify you when something needs action.

If a response organization is able to gather and analyze their equipment effectively, it can be an incredibly powerful tool.

This knowledge will help make informed maintenance and purchasing decisions to support a wide range of operational improvements.
