What Others Say

“It’s a good tool. We use it, we find it very instrumental and it’s changed the way we do business for the better.”

Chad Deese
Assistant 911 Direction with Robeson County, NC

“During the course of Hurricane Irma, Command Staff used Salamander to track the availability and location of over 200 personnel and 60 pieces of Apparatus, Patrol Cars, and Equipment. Throughout the day, we kept complete accountability while answering more than 200 calls for service. Over the past 12 years, I have personally taken part in several storm details. This was my first time utilizing Salamander’s accountability tools and was by far the smoothest operation I have ever been a part of. ”

Jason Walker
Lieutenant, Tift County Fire Rescue

"This past April, 24 hours prior to an F-3 tornado that devastated a large portion of my county, we acquired the Salamander COMMAND, RAPID TAG, and Mobile Express Systems. Moreover, two hours before our training should have ended, we found ourselves activating all three systems. These three systems have brought my office a new outlook on personnel efficiency, document reliability, and organizational control. Local governments have to provide a portion of the total cost of any declared disaster/crisis. With Salamander, each volunteer and piece of equipment was logged and we were able to use this as our portion of the in-kind match for funds. The Salamander system took a tremendous burden off our financial woes. In the first 72 hours, we were able to capture $135,000 in voluntary emergency response in-kind revenue. Our Salamander systems turned out to be priceless."

"The products, first. They are simple and robust, clearly designed for field operations by real-life operators. We had a Salamander system in use seven days a week during a landfill search operation, with the equipment exposed to heat, cold, dust, dirt, mud, rain, snow, and sunlight, tracking over 1100 personnel, and nothing broke over the eight weeks of operations. That was far more severe than any torture test I could develop. Their personnel and training are very good, but none of that matters if the products don't work and survive in the field."

Alan Colon
Chair, Denver UASI North Central Credentialing Program

“Our first chance to use it was with a large wildland class where we wanted full accountability. We had students from across the state and we used RAPID TAG to quickly register the students. Then with their tags printed on the spot we used the tags to check in and out the students from their practical’s. We are a rural department and we have been using Salamander for several years as our normal P.A.R. and credential system. RAPID TAG was our next step and I am glad that our first chance to use it was a training exercise. Now more of our responders see the value of the Salamander system.”
