The management of critical equipment aboard ambulances involves ensuring that each item intended to treat a patient is onboard when needed, as well as providing scheduled maintenance and servicing to guarantee that if a piece of equipment is required during an emergency, it will function as expected. An emergency services provider has attached EPC Gen 2 passive UHF RFID tags to critical gear, and can now more easily verify what is onboard each vehicle, and when it was last serviced. Learn how the firm is using the technology to be sure that nothing is missing on any ambulance, and also that any equipment that might be needed during a particular emergency call will be in good operational order.
