Rescue Leaders include our brothers and sisters in the Emergency Medical Services. On too many occasions, EMT’s/ Paramedics are tending to patients on our highways and motorists come driving by trying to see the carnage and not pay attention to the rescuer, nearly killing them.Rescue Leaders has created the Body Beacon to enhance your safety and to create a product to make your jobs more effective and efficient. Here are some examples on how the Body Beacon can be used.
The Body Beacon’s primary platform is constructed from the belt keeper used in everyday holding our utility belt to our pant belt. The Body Beacon snaps into the keeper and has a secondary clasp that wraps around the beacon with its rubberized wings. This makes you the emergency vehicle and creates a safer work environment after you leave your vehicle.
The Body Beacon also can be used in conjunction with the triage tag. After the patient is assessed, the triage tag is run through the Body Beacon’s rubberized wings. The proper color coded Body Beacon illuminates the patient and then it’s time to move to the next patient. Supplemental help arrives and takes the patient to the appropriate location based on the patients triage level. This was easily determined by the bright blinking Body Beacon. Incident Commanders can determine the amount of resources needed to mitigate the event more effectively, potentially saving time which you and I know saves lives.
The Body Beacon can attach to objects with the belt keeper and without! For example the Body Beacon could attach to stretchers, or generators, or even to door knobs so other members of your team know where to find you. Any time a reflective vest is worn a Body Beacon should too! We create light not just reflect it, and your safety always comes first.
