EPIC from Real-Time Technology Delivers a Credentialing Solution for First Responders

Real-Time Technology Group (RTTG), a leading provider of trusted identity solutions, announces advanced personal identity and training verification for first responders.

RTTG's Emergency Personnel Information Center (EPIC) is a trusted community that provides operational tools for more efficient training record management, and more effective access control at natural disasters and other critical incident scenes. EPIC delivers a secure, easy-to-use Web-based program that allows law enforcement, fire/rescue, emergency medical teams and associated support contractors to improve identity and certification tracking within their organizations, and allow real-time verification of critical data for improved incident management. Using any Internet-enabled device, officers can efficiently and effectively limit entry to incident scenes to the essential, trusted personnel who maintain the professional certifications required for safe access.

EPIC enables local departments to easily maintain member training records and professional certifications, automatically alert members and training officers of expiring certifications and conveniently print, issue and manage department ID cards.

EPIC enables scene commanders to optimally deploy responders based on verifiable skills, authenticate mutual-aid responders and their qualifications prior to granting access to hazardous or secure environments and better control and audit access to incident scenes.

EPIC provides emergency response personnel with a cooperative solution that meets their specific certification tracking and identity verification challenges. EPIC provides an operational tool to help coordinate the efforts of Emergency Response Organizations (Police, Fire-Rescue and EMS), Local and County Dispatch, Emergency Management Officials, Incident Scene Commanders (Fire Chiefs, EMS Captains and OEM Coordinators) and all the private organizations that support response (Utilities and Contractors). Automated system notices, and point-and-click administrative functions deliver an immediate return on investment for each participating department.

Members of the trusted EPIC Responders community are working together to enhance response effectiveness, mitigate risk, and improve the overall safety and security of critical incident scenes. Partnerships forged with EPIC are markedly improving situational awareness and response and delivering proven results.
