Fredonia, PA, June 13th, 2013 – Grace Industries Inc. is pleased to introduce the new TPASS® Telemetry Safety Kit providing real-time safety monitoring of Fire Fighters and high performance emergency signaling in an affordable, simple to use and easy to learn package.
The TPASS® Telemetry Safety Kit includes fifteen TPASS® 3 Fire Fighter telemetry-PASS ‘man-down’ Alarms that are monitored by either of the two SuperCELL® SC500 Portable Incident Command Monitors or Portable Incident Alarm included in the kit. The Portable Incident Alarm is an extremely loud siren and strobe light unit which is strategically placed on the fire ground to alert other crew members and personnel of a TPASS alarm condition.
Grace introduced one of the first stand-alone Personal Alert Safety System -PASS Alarms over 20 years ago and since that time has answered the call as Fire Fighter Accountability has grown to become a necessity within the Fire Service
Many of the Complex Accountability Systems in use today require large budgets. Grace solves the budget problem for smaller fire departments by offering two systems under $20,000.
Nearly all Accountability Systems require regular training and use to maintain proficiency, regardless of whether a crew runs thirty or thirty thousand calls a year. The TPASS® Telemetry Safety Kit is simple to use and easy to learn making it an affordable easy-to-use solution with the capability to expand to protect any number of personnel.
The TPASS® Telemetry Safety Kit is simple to use and integrates seamlessly with Grace’s PC driven In-Command® software and WatchDog™ that accommodates the increased demands of mutual-aid incidents and larger departments.
V.P. of Research and Development at Grace Industries, Robert Campman states, “The TPASS® Telemetry Safety Kit was created as a versatile, high performance safety monitoring system to fill the growing needs of smaller fire departments while providing a high-level of on-site Fire Fighter safety, including Evacuate, May-Day / Panic alerts and automated accountability and monitoring”.
The TPASS® Telemetry Safety Kit components use Grace’s patented Smart-Signal® radio telemetry to provide the highest level of signaling performance in various complex building structures to communicate with Grace TPASS® and SuperCELL® motion-sensing man down alarms which report the real-time safety status of the Fire Fighter back to the Incident Commander and the fire ground Portable Incident Alarm. The innovative design of this product allows Fire Command and crews to effectively monitor the safety of fellow Fire Fighters.
Since 1974, Grace Industries has developed “Solutions for Life Safety” for Fire, Industrial, Mining and Transportation markets in more than 31 countries. From its TPASS® product, Grace is best known as a world leader in fire fighter ‘man-down’ alarms and automated personnel accountability safety systems.
