Command Portability: Transform any vehicle into a Command Post

I have yet to see an EMS vehicle with excess storage space, and EMS command vehicles that carry MCI gear have even less space. At major incidents and prolonged deployments, the ability for EMS command to be visible, under adequate cover and organized, as well as manage data and review guidelines, are all important. Here are six products that can help you initiate command operations long before the mobile-home-size command post arrives on scene. The big bonus: All six products will fit inside a mid-size duffel bag.



Trimble Ranger

To help the EMS commander manage the millions of pieces of data that may be involved in an incident, from hazmat to MSDS to patient tracking, Trimble offers the RangerÛa rugged, new handheld computer that's powerful and loaded with features. Operating on Windows Mobile 5.0, the software package includes mobile versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Pocket Internet Explorer.



The 2.1 lb. (952 g) Ranger will run for 30 hours on battery power and will fully recharge in 4.5 hours. Compact Flash (CF) slots allow you to add bar code scanners, GPS or other CF devices, and Secure Digital (SD) slots provide increased data storage or SD accessories. Other options for the Trimble Ranger include Bluetooth and 802.11 wireless connectivity. The rugged Ranger meets the MIL-STD-810F specification for drops, vibration, humidity, altitude and extreme temperature, and the IP67 rating for dust and water resistance. The Trimble Ranger retail pricing ranges from $2,349Ò3,149Ûdepending on memory, Bluetooth, wireless and other options.
