Accountability of the initial crews and with limited manpower is a difficult situation. Many Fire Departments cannot dedicate personnel to collect the Accountability Tags at the entry/egress points. American Trade Mark Co. has designed the Accountability Stake™ with this in mind. Designed to be carried on the first due apparatus and to be placed at the entry point. Crews place their Accountability tags on the rings before entry. Outside Sector or Operations Officers will monitor the tags without having to carry them around while performing other duties. Crews will retrieve their tags immediately upon exit from the structure. Hook and Loop models are also available for Passport™ Style tags.
