Brief: First responder creations

Incident Command Technologies Inc., Clinton Township, Mich., has developed a handheld, computer-based solution to keep track of firefighters at the scene of an incident. Assignments can be noted and instantly updated using the software. The waterproof handheld can then be synched with a desktop computer to provide a detailed, chronological event log of who was assigned where and when. The company was formed by John Ellis, a lieutenant for the Fraser, Mich., Department of Public Safety.

Arinc Inc., Annapolis, Md., has delivered a mobile data computer network for the police department of Prince George's County, Md., that can find license plate information in as little as 10 seconds. Using a cellular digital packet data network, plates are checked against local and national databases. Names also can be checked against national lists of wanted persons and missing children.
