2Objectives Know the primary functions of SEMS Identify SEMS components Demonstrate the operation of the SEMS PDA Portable UnitDemonstrate the operation of the SEMS PDR Base Station
3SEMS Primary Functions Personal Alert Safety System (PASS)Firefighter AccountabilityTrack current SCBA air suppliesMonitor the status of firefighters using air packsElectronic CommunicationsTransmit PASS alarm activation to ReceiverTransmit Withdrawal signal to ReceiverTransmit Evacuation signal to the SEMS consoleTerminology does not match Zone 3 trainingTrue meaning is ABANDONMENT
4SEMS Components Scott NXG2 Air Pack SEMS PDR Base Station SEMS PDA Portable Unit (Console)Computer ModuleLocated behind bottleControls all pack electronics to include the PASSBattery CompartmentSEMS PDR Base Station
5SEMS PDA Portable Unit – Components Analog Pressure GaugeDigital read-outInformation CenterYellow buttonReset/AcknowledgeBlue ButtonWithdrawal transmissionRed buttonManual PASS activation
6SEMS PDR Base Station – Command Unit SEMS Base StationCommand Center Power SwitchTurns on/off all electrical systems in the rear of the Battalion 81Computer MonitorsTouch ScreenRegular ScreenThe computer screen is only a visual aid. Commands can only be sent and received through the base station unit.

11SEMS Operation – Startup PDR Base Station Press and hold the power buttonBase station will initializetakes approximately 10 secondsBase station is ready to operate when the clock appears
12SEMS Operation – Startup PDA Portable Unit SEMS PDA Portable unit activates when SCBA is turned onUnit will sound 3 chirps to indicate activationStart-up sequence takes approximately 10 secondsConsole displays “<<<<“ until logged onto a base stationConsole flashes a green light to show normal operation
13SEMS Operation – Initialization SEMS PDUSends an initialization signalIndicated by “<<<<“ flashing on the consoleOnce a Base station is found, console will display “<< “After Base Station Acknowledges the logon, the console display will be blank.
14SEMS Operation – Initialization SEMS PDRReceives PDU initialization signalPDR Displays “Request Logon? (Y/N)”Acknowledge PDU:Press and Hold “ACK” to monitorPDU unit will be logged onPDR will display “Truck? (Y/N)”ACK: Logon all units from that apparatusClear: Logon that specific unit only.Press and Hold “CLEAR” to send a unit to the Reject List
15SEMS Operation – Range SEMS PDU SEMS PDR Works within ½ mile line of sight of PDR base stationMove out of range, “RNGE” displays on the consoleLow pressure audible alarm sounds to alert the userWill automatically re-logon when unit is in rangeSEMS PDRRange displays on Base station indicating the unit that is out of rangeComputer display – Range turns from green to red
16SEMS Operation – Air Cylinder Pressure SEMS PDUPress and hold yellow button to check pressureDisplayed to nearest 100 psigAt 2250 psig, Console displays, “½ Air”At 1150 psig, Console displays, “Low Air”Low Air signal is transmitted to PDR within 10 secondsSEMS PDRMonitors air pack cylinder pressuresLow Air signal warningMust press and hold “ACK” to acknowledge the low pressure warningLow Air is displayed on the monitor for that unit
17SEMS Operation – Distress Alarm (PASS) SEMS PDUActivation:Manual: Press the Red button for 2 secondsAutomatic: No motion for 30 secondsTransmits to the PDR 10 seconds after activation“PASS” displays on the console when the base station operator acknowledges the signalPASS continues to alarm until the user shuts off the respirator or resets the PASS devisePASS alarm overrides all other transmissions
18SEMS Operation – Distress Alarm (PASS) SEMS PDRReceives distress alarmDisplays “PASS” on screenMust press ACK to acknowledge PASS activationDisplays “FF DOWN” after acknowledgementIf transmission is reset, “RESET” is displayedPress ACK to acknowledge the resetDisplay returns to normal operationPASS Alarm overrides all other alarms
19SEMS Operation – Withdrawal SEMS PDUPress and hold the blue button until an audible chirp is heardChirp indicates a transmission is sent“W-D” displays on the console when the base station operator acknowledges the transmission“W-D” is displayed until the console is reset or the respirator is shutdown.
20SEMS Operation – Withdrawal SEMS PDRReceives withdrawal signalDisplay shows “Withdrawal”Press ACK to acknowledge transmissionDisplay shows “Withdrawing”If transmission is reset, “RESET” is displayedPress ACK to acknowledge the resetDisplay returns to normal operation
21SEMS Operation – Evacuation SEMS PDUReceives EVAC signal“EVAC” displays on consoleAlert tone soundsDouble Click yellow button to acknowledge EVAC signalAudible chirp is heard when acknowledgment is sentUser must leave the IDLH atmosphere immediatelyTo reset unit, pack must be completely shutdownUnit cannot be reset by using the reset buttonPASS overrides EVACIf reset, returns to EVAC signal
22SEMS Operation – Evacuation SEMS PDRPress and Hold the EVAC button for 2 secondsDisplays “EVAC ALL?”ACK if yes, EVAC signal sent to all unitsClear if No, Next displays “EVAC BY TRUCK?”ACK if yes, EVAC all units for a selected apparatusSelect apparatus by using the scroll buttonsClear if No, Next displays “EVAC BY SELECTION”ACK if yes, EVAC units individuallySelect unit by using the scroll buttonsClear if No, EVAC is cancelled and returns to normal operation
23SEMS Operation – Evacuation SEMS PDR (continued)EVAC TransmissionEVAC Sent – Display “EVAC”PDU received signal – Display “EVAC R’cved”PDU Acknowledges – Display “EVAC CONF”PDU Shuts down – Display “Evacuated”PASS Activation during EvacuationDisplays “EVAC PASS” until acknowledgedDisplays “EVAC FF DOWN” after acknowledgeIf PASS is reset, Returns to EVAC signal
24SEMS Operation – Shutdown SEMS PDUTurn off the cylinder valveBleed air off the systemDouble click the yellow button to shut off the electronicsSEMS PDRReceives shutdown signalDisplays “Goodbye”Press ACK to acknowledge “Goodbye”This removes unit from the PDU databasePress and Hold On/Off button to shut off base stationAny unit that remains in the PDU database and Reject list when shut down, will continue to be in these lists when re-started
25SEMS Information – Event Log SEMS Base Station logs all transmissions between the PDU and PDRInformation is stored in memoryInformation can be retrieved for training and/or incident review.Information Includes:DateTimeUnit InformationState (Transmission)Air pressureElapsed Pack Time
