In today’s fast paced, resource limited, ever changing environment, first responders are constantly challenged with maintaining updated records on their Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Additionally, reporting upon asset status, location, maintenance and replacement cycles for budgeting and accountability purposes is difficult at best. Current methods include manually recording data on paper in three ring binders which is time consuming , not readily searchable and difficult to manage properly.
The Avon Asset Management System is a user friendly, secured, cloud based system in which departmental assets can be managed via barcodes and commercially off the shelf barcode readers. The data can also be entered manually if desired. Examples of assets that can be managed through the system include SCBA’s, (i.e. facepiece, backframe, cylinder), Air Purifying Respirators, Tactical SCBA’s, Accessories and much more.
