We have not seen a lot of deployments that use active RFID real-time locating systems (RTLS) to manage emergencies. BP has deployed an ultra-wideband (UWB) system to ascertain the whereabouts of 2,000 staff members, contractors and visitors, so they can be evacuated quickly in case of an emergency or located in the building if they were not evacuated.

In our special issue, RFID 2030, published in December 2009, we described in detail how active and passive RFID systems could be used to dramatically improve emergency management. The story about an accident at a chemical plant shows how first responders could use passive tags to identify victims and better manage triage, and active tags to manage vehicles, equipment and doctors entering the emergency area and much more (see ).
