Mission Statement

At Salamander, we are saving lives of our 1st Responders and the citizens they protect by offering a superior automatic identification system that accounts for all personnel, verifies responder identities, and provides a common operating picture during an incident, emergency or field event. Our contributions to homeland security will accelerate as the Salamander solution fulfills the national imperative for a unified system to identify and track all participants of a large-scale incident – responders, volunteers, and civilian victims.

Vision Statement

Provide an easy to use, affordable, scalable and redundant platform for interagency resource accountability – from the tag to the web – that complies with federal mandates for the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and Personal Identity Verification (PIV).

Core Values

Perseverance.  Confident in our mission and vision, we will overcome all obstacles and challenges to our success.  We will not only survive, we will thrive.

Industry Background

Identification, tracking and monitoring are the core pillars of accountability, and are essential to the infrastructure for emergency response management. Emergency response management must always be prepared to manage any incident or event – planned or unplanned – and oversee accountability to mitigate possible situations and ensure the safety of others. However, standard accountability tools in the field do not enable response teams to meet expectations set by the government. Today, teams are set up to manage data, resources and individuals manually – pen and paper, radio, etc. – all of which obstruct and restrict situational awareness and reporting, and put on-scene individuals at risk.

News and Press

How the solution works:

There are three key components to a successful accountability protocol: identification of people and resources, live-tracking and reliable data collection. These are accomplished by automating existing processes to help paint an all-encompassing, real-time picture as the incident or event size and complexity change during an operational period. We call this INTELLIGENT ACCOUNTABILITY™ and it can be applied across government and private sectors, including fire and rescue, emergency management, event management, site security, law enforcement and others.

Salamander Technologies, LLC. enables emergency response to be ready before having to react, make well-informed decisions in times of distress and quickly shift and rely on available resources to ensure everyone goes home safely at the end of the day.
