Vector Solutions Releases New Features For PPE Tracking Solution In Advance Of Fire-Rescue International Conference

The Vector Check It equipment training upgrade expands PPE tracking capabilities to help fire departments comply with NFPA 1851 standards and will be showcased at this year’s IAFC Fire-Rescue International Conference

TAMPA, FL, August 9, 2023 - Today, Vector Solutions, the leading provider of technology solutions to help train, prepare, and retain public safety professionals, announced the release of a new innovation to its mobile asset management product Vector Check It. Now with enhanced personal protective equipment (PPE) tracking capabilities, Vector Check It helps fire departments meet NFPA standards.

Proper care and maintenance of PPE in the fire service is crucial for firefighter safety and operational effectiveness. Well-maintained gear provides reliable protection against hazards encountered during firefighting operations and can significantly impact health outcomes for first responders. Ineffective PPE increases health risks, impacts career longevity, and hinders firefighters' ability to effectively mitigate personal and property loss. The NFPA 1851 standards require documenting every event, at every stage, for every piece of PPE from acquisition through retirement or disposal. However, this can be a daunting undertaking for fire departments with already strapped resources.

In order to solve this challenge, Vector Solutions conducted a significant enhancement and upgrade for the Vector Check It product. Through the use of Vector Check It, departments can:

  • Simplify PPE management with detailed cradle-to-grave tracking from purchase through retirement or disposal—including assignments, inspections, cleanings, and repairs.
  • Empower crews to complete routine or advanced inspections on any device with the native mobile app for iOS and Android.
  • Streamline maintenance and log all repair details with automated ticket workflows.
  • Reduce admin time with at-a-glance status dashboards and detailed exportable reporting.

“The ability to streamline checks, inspections, and management of apparatus, equipment, and inventory in one place for total oversight of all assets is extremely valuable for fire departments,” said Robbi King, veteran firefighter and Solutions Engineer at Vector Solutions. “It’s easier for departments to meet NFPA PPE standards and better protect the health and safety of its members with Vector Check It’s enhanced PPE tracking capabilities.”

Vector Solutions will be showcasing the Vector Check It product updates during the IAFC Fire-Rescue International Conference on August 16-18, 2023 in Kansas City, Missouri. Interested parties can visit Vector Solutions at booth #2235.

“Our team at Vector Solutions is in awe of the commitment and sacrifice our first responders make on a daily basis,” said Jonathan Cherins, CEO of Vector Solutions. “We will continue to look for innovative ways to provide solutions to help agencies meet compliance and training guidelines, creating a safer, smarter, and better environment for those in fire service.”
