SEMS (Scott-Electronic-Management-System) includes a transceiver to send and receive critical information between the firefighter and base command unit. This remarkable communication system provides better fire ground accountability, more effective fire scene management, and greater personal safety for firefighters
Before designing the unit - which includes communication, motion sensor, air guage and alarms- James Lamb underwent firefighting training to understand the extreme user issues.
The smoky, highly stressed, impenetrable darkness led to a design that is asymmetric to allow accurate signalling with a gloved hand and easy viewing of the bright LED display.
SEMS is intrinsically safe, waterproof to 1m can take a 10 foot fall onto concrete and 1000 degrees flame.
