First responders experience significant physiological stress during response operations and face exposure to a myriad of hazards. Miniaturized, wearable sensors attached to or carried by responders can provide incident command with information about an individual’s health status and specific threats and hazards at the incident scene. Improved awareness of these factors helps incident command make decisions that increase the safety of responders and the population.
