Radiation Alert Ranger and First Responders||



In today’s world, there are many situations where a first responder will require the use of a radiation detector. Securing a scene and making sure radiation levels are not above normal is paramount for sufficient protection. The Radiation Alert® Ranger is here to do the job. If there has been an explosion, preliminary screening for harmful substances must include radiation assessments to be adequate. Many other detectors used in response do not include alpha detection, which can be easily missed and ingested, causing persistent health issues and in cases of extreme exposure, can result in death. Radiation poisoning is serious. Having plans and procedures in place and knowing what’s around you are essential to avoiding harmful effects. If you determine the radiation level is a risk factor, it’s best to take a position of safety first.

With the included Observer BLE App and the Radiation Alert® line of survey meters, users can map an area of contamination with perimeter surveys and GPS. If a WMD is suspected, knowing your contamination zone can accelerate the decision-making to trigger public safety measures. Is the Emergency Planning Zone free of contaminants? Should people stay indoors to minimize or prevent radiation exposure? Where is a safe location for a decontamination site to screen personnel or the general public if needed?

With our reach back capabilities, users can analyze exposure data, perform incident recreation, and assess operations to identify critical strengths and weaknesses in response capabilities. The Ranger is an important tool to help evaluate and enhance your response, making it easier to coordinate and refine the best protective actions available.
