Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Services
Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service is required to provide an audit trail, to make sure all equipment has been tested and is safe to operate.
The Ritchey ID solution
Ritchey ID has supplied a range of thermal transfer tags and equipment labels, which are used by all the fire stations in the county. The barcoded tags contain information that can be read by a hand-held scanner, which in turn transfers updated information for computer based storage.
Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Services spokesman, Mark Redfern says “We needed a way of identifying and tracking data that would be able to stand up to the harsh environments we work in, which often involve water, dirt, grease and chemicals. I had some concerns that the barcoded tags would not be robust enough, but happily that has not turned out to be the case” says Mr Redfern.
