Monroe, NC (April 27, 2023) – 3M Scott Fire & Safety is excited to announce a collaboration with industry-leading incident management provider, 3AM Innovations, to leverage critical SCBA telemetry data via an application programming interface (API) with 3M™ Scott™ SEMS II Wireless SCBA Telemetry System, giving incident commanders a more complete common operating picture on the fireground. 3AM Innovations joins Adashi Systems, a Versaterm Public Safety Company and Systems Definition, Inc. (SDI) as the only incident management providers who can boast this groundbreaking new capability.

The solutions provided by these companies are now empowered to provide incident command with air, PASS and EVAC data while establishing and maintaining command. Additional alert notifications – high-flow or no-flow condition at full-alarm PASS – provide incident command with enhanced situational intelligence to guide critical decision making. The telemetry data is further improved by giving incident command the ability to electronically call for a personnel accountability report (ePAR).

“We see the desire firefighters have to upgrade their technologies and capabilities and better serve their communities. By incorporating 3M Scott telemetry data into our FLORIAN interface, 3AM Innovations provides more critical data to incident commanders without requiring them to change screens or operating procedures,” said Mel Passarelli, CEO of 3AM Innovations. “This partnership showcases the value that technology can bring to the fire service, enabling them to make data-driven decisions using the tools they already have.”

With the integration of Scott/3M to the existing SDI Personnel Accountability system, Deputy Chief Bryant Krizik (South Holland Fire Department) said “It closes another gap in fireground accountability and air management. The SDI system provides electronic PARs and radio monitoring through Motorola APX radios. By adding in the Scott/3M integration, Incident Commanders can visually account for, receive PAR, and send evacuation orders to personnel through both the APX radio and Scott SCBA. The SDI/Scott-3M system provides ICs with valuable tools to manage incidents and keep firefighters safe.“

“We are proud to be 3M Scott’s first partner to integrate critical air management data from firefighters’ SCBAs into the Adashi C&C incident command dashboard for real-time incident and resource management. Together, we are leveraging connected technology and data in an impactful way to protect firefighters as they brave dangerous situations in service to their communities,” said Alex Menkes, President of Adashi Systems, a Versaterm Public Safety Company.

“Using Adashi C&C with 3M Scott SCBAs provides our incident commanders with real-time visibility into the air status of our firefighters and instant alerts when life-threatening issues are detected during incidents. This level of situational awareness allows us to make proactive, informed decisions to ensure our firefighters’ safety during any incident. This technology is truly a lifesaver,” said Chief Mike Robles of the City of Stamford Fire Department.

“We’re excited to introduce this dynamic collaboration at the Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC), said Longin Kloc, global product marketer, firefighter solutions. “I believe the integration of the SCBA telemetry into these leading incident management solutions represents a significant improvement in fireground operations and will lead to improved firefighter safety.”
