For public sector field crews and emergency first responders, getting to the scene of a crime, fire, disaster or outage is critical and often a life and death situation. Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computers help public sector workers respond more quickly and provide immediate, remote access to critical information that can be vital in averting or responding to a disaster.
Multi-user In-vehicle Computing Solution
When emergencies occur and lives are at stake, it is important for first responders to assess the situation quickly and take appropriate actions. To accomplish this, Fire/EMS departments need to provide its personnel with solutions to ensure quick response times and superior patient care. This often can involve multiple devices from multiple vendors which can be costly to purchase, integrate and maintain. Above all, these devices must work reliably 24/7 and be tough enough to withstand bumps, shocks, vibration, humidity, liquids and extreme temperatures. With that in mind, Panasonic has engineered a powerful, cost-effective rugged mobile computing solution that allows EMS crews to perform their duties quickly and efficiently.
The Toughbook® Permanent Display Removable Computer (PDRC) seamlessly integrates with all Toughbook mobile computers. By tapping into the processing power and wireless capabilities of the Toughbook computer, the Toughbook PDRC provides the fully-rugged solution that EMS technicians require in mission-critical situations. Mounted in the rear of the ambulance, the PDRC allows EMS crews to tend to patients. They can quickly retrieve patient data, such as medications and medical history, as well as update patient records, all in real time. The 12.1", 1,250 nit touch screen provides EMS technicians with a clear view of critical patient data, no matter how bright the conditions. For nighttime operation, the display's brightness can be quickly dialed down and the backlit keyboard helps ensure typing accuracy.
Mounted in the front of the ambulance, EMS crews use the Toughbook computers' advanced wireless capabilities to create a reliable, real time communication channel with dispatch. This allows instantaneous updates to the situation, allowing EMS crews to prepare for when they arrive at the scene. With embedded GPS and mapping software from Panasonic's software partners, the Toughbook computer helps the driver find the quickest route to its destination, improving response and transport times. The Toughbook computers' rugged ability to withstand shock and vibration coupled with its easy-to-navigate touch screen provide Fire/EMS personnel with unfettered access to information—regardless of what the road throws at them.
Panasonic's multi-user mobile computing solution gives today's emergency responders the ability to communicate and coordinate more effectively, leading to better response times and improved patient care.
Fire & EMS Mobile Data Solution
When emergencies occur and lives are at stake, it is important that first responders quickly assess the situation and take appropriate actions. To accomplish this, fire/EMS departments need to provide personnel with solutions to ensure fast response times and superior patient care. This often can involve multiple devices from multiple vendors, which can be costly to purchase, integrate and maintain. Above all, these devices must work reliably 24/7 and be tough enough to withstand bumps, shocks, vibration, humidity, liquids and extreme temperatures. To help firefighters and EMS crews perform their duties quickly and efficiently, the Panasonic Toughbook® 31 and Toughbook 19 are the ideal choices for rugged and reliable mobile computing.
Mounted to the front of an ambulance or fire engine, the Toughbook 31 and Toughbook 19 are MIL-STD-810G- and IP66-certified, providing unrivaled ruggedness and drop shock protection. Able to withstand moisture, humidity and weather extremes, they protect critical, time-sensitive data from loss resulting from any possible hardware damage. In addition, with sunlight viewability and anti-glare and anti-reflective screen treatments, the Toughbook 31 and Toughbook 19 provide rescue workers with a clear view of critical data, no matter how bright the conditions. For nighttime operation, the display's brightness can be quickly dialed down and the backlit keyboard helps ensure typing accuracy.
Running the Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ Processor and with optional 3G or 4G LTE mobile broadband, the Toughbook 31 and Toughbook 19 enable firefighters and first responders to gain real-time access to mission-critical information such as patient data and medical history, street maps and coordinates, and building profiles and schematics. All this vital data enables rescue workers to prepare in advance, improving response time.
Incident Command Solution
When disaster strikes, access to vital information and the ability to organize it quickly are critical to a successful outcome. Personnel, equipment and vehicles from more than one department may respond to a call; coordination of these resources can be a challenge. Traditionally, a whiteboard and waterproof paper have been used to organize an emergency response and provide accountability. However, this is a slow and cumbersome method just when speed and efficiency are required.
Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computers such as the Toughbook 31 and Toughbook 19 , are engineered to withstand the rigors — including the often-associated harsh weather — of emergency situations. Using specialized software that organizes, lists, tracks and assigns resources, Toughbook laptops can help battalion chiefs more effectively manage a response effort when downtime is not an option. Because Toughbook computers offer embedded, robust wireless connectivity, law enforcement, fire/EMS, hazmat and other departments can communicate and coordinate more efficiently to save lives and property.
