DRAEGER FRT 1000
Leading global safety equipment manufacturer Draeger Safety is introducing a new line of life-saving products for tracking downed firefighters.
The company has entered into an exclusive manufacturing and supply agreement with Exit Technologies of Boulder Colorado, original developer of the Tracker FRT (Firefighter Rescue Transceiver) and ET (Egress Transmitter). The products were introduced this month at FDIC 2008 under the names Draeger FRT 1000 and Draeger ETR 1000.
The Draeger FRT 1000 is a low-frequency 457 kHz radio transmitter and receiver both contained in the same handheld unit. It is worn on the SCBA belt during fireground operations in conjunction with an integrated or stand-alone PASS device. When the firefighter stops moving for 60 seconds, it sends an electromagnetic distress signal that can be tracked by others on the fireground that are also wearing a Draeger FRT 1000. The signal transmission can also be activated manually by the distressed firefighter while issuing a Mayday.
