Objectives Know the primary functions of SEMS Identify SEMS components Demonstrate the operation of the SEMS PDA Portable Unit Demonstrate the operation of the SEMS PDR Base Station
SEMS Primary Functions PPersonal Alert Safety System (PASS) FFirefighter Accountability Track current SCBA air supplies Monitor the status of firefighters using air packs EElectronic Communications Transmit PASS alarm activation to Receiver Transmit Withdrawal signal to Receiver Transmit Evacuation signal to the SEMS console TTerminology does not match Zone 3 training True meaning is ABANDONMENT
SEMS Components Scott NXG2 Air Pack SEMS PDA Portable Unit (Console) Computer Module Located behind bottle Controls all pack electronics to include the PASS Battery Compartment SEMS PDR Base Station
SEMS PDA Portable Unit – Components Analog Pressure Gauge Digital read-out Information Center Yellow button Reset/Acknowledge Blue Button Withdrawal transmission Red button Manual PASS activation
SEMS PDR Base Station – Command Unit SEMS Base Station Command Center Power Switch Turns on/off all electrical systems in the rear of the Battalion 81 Computer Monitors Touch Screen Regular Screen The computer screen is only a visual aid. Commands can only be sent and received through the base station unit.
SEMS PDR Base Station - Components Power Button Turns on/off Base Station Menu Button Contains 7 items Clear Button No on (Y/N) questions Acknowledge Button Yes on (Y/N) questions Scroll Button Scrolls up/down on base station display EVAC Button Transmits Abandonment signal to operating SCBA’s Digital Display Window Displays SEMS information Alarm Light Visual Alarm warning
SEMS PDR Base Station - Components Menu Items 1) Clear Reject List o Removes rejected packs from the database 2) Set Clock o Sets time/date on the base station 3) Request Logon o Forced request of Logon 4) Request PAR o Forced update of information 5) Identify Base Unit o Displays Base Station ID information 6) Set Display o Adjust the display on the base station 7) Clear up PU Database o Removes all active portable units from the database
SEMS PDR Base Station – Computer Display Department IDApparatus IDSeat Position Air PressureTime Pack is On Pack StatusRange Indicator
SEMS Additional Information – PDU Location Engine Officer #1 Officer’s Seat Driver #2 In the bracket nearest the driver’s side rear door Hydrantman #3 Seat behind the officer Nozzleman #4 Seat behind the driver Aid Car Officer #1 Pack should be located in the top bracket Driver #2 Should be located in the lower bracket
SEMS Operation – Startup PDR Base Station SStart-up Press and hold the power button Base station will initialize ttakes approximately 10 seconds Base station is ready to operate when the clock appears
SEMS Operation – Startup PDA Portable Unit SStart-up SEMS PDA Portable unit activates when SCBA is turned on UUnit will sound 3 chirps to indicate activation Start-up sequence takes approximately 10 seconds CConsole displays “<<<<“ until logged onto a base station CConsole flashes a green light to show normal operation
SEMS Operation – Initialization SSEMS PDU Sends an initialization signal IIndicated by “<<<<“ flashing on the console Once a Base station is found, console will display “<< “ After Base Station Acknowledges the logon, the console display will be blank.
SSEMS PDR Receives PDU initialization signal PPDR Displays “Request Logon? (Y/N)” Acknowledge PDU: PPress and Hold “ACK” to monitor PDU unit will be logged on PDR will display “Truck? (Y/N)” AACK: Logon all units from that apparatus CClear: Logon that specific unit only. PPress and Hold “CLEAR” to send a unit to the Reject List
SEMS Operation – Range SEMS PDU Works within ½ mile line of sight of PDR base station Move out of range, “RNGE” displays on the console Low pressure audible alarm sounds to alert the user Will automatically re-logon when unit is in range SEMS PDR Range displays on Base station indicating the unit that is out of range Computer display – Range turns from green to red
SEMS Operation – Air Cylinder Pressure SSEMS PDU Press and hold yellow button to check pressure DDisplayed to nearest 100 psig At 2250 psig, Console displays, “½ Air” At 1150 psig, Console displays, “Low Air” LLow Air signal is transmitted to PDR within 10 seconds SSEMS PDR Monitors air pack cylinder pressures Low Air signal warning MMust press and hold “ACK” to acknowledge the low pressure warning LLow Air is displayed on the monitor for that unit
SEMS Operation – Distress Alarm (PASS) SSEMS PDU Activation: MManual: Press the Red button for 2 seconds AAutomatic: No motion for 30 seconds Transmits to the PDR 10 seconds after activation “PASS” displays on the console when the base station operator acknowledges the signal PPASS continues to alarm until the user shuts off the respirator or resets the PASS devise PASS alarm overrides all other transmissions
SSEMS PDR Receives distress alarm DDisplays “PASS” on screen Must press ACK to acknowledge PASS activation DDisplays “FF DOWN” after acknowledgement If transmission is reset, “RESET” is displayed PPress ACK to acknowledge the reset DDisplay returns to normal operation PASS Alarm overrides all other alarms
SEMS Operation – Withdrawal SSEMS PDU Press and hold the blue button until an audible chirp is heard CChirp 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.
SSEMS PDR Receives withdrawal signal DDisplay shows “Withdrawal” Press ACK to acknowledge transmission DDisplay shows “Withdrawing” If transmission is reset, “RESET” is displayed PPress ACK to acknowledge the reset DDisplay returns to normal operation
SEMS Operation – Evacuation SSEMS PDU Receives EVAC signal ““EVAC” displays on console AAlert tone sounds Double Click yellow button to acknowledge EVAC signal AAudible chirp is heard when acknowledgment is sent User must leave the IDLH atmosphere immediately To reset unit, pack must be completely shutdown UUnit cannot be reset by using the reset button PASS overrides EVAC IIf reset, returns to EVAC signal
SSEMS PDR Press and Hold the EVAC button for 2 seconds DDisplays “EVAC ALL?” ACK if yes, EVAC signal sent to all units Clear if No, Next displays “EVAC BY TRUCK?” AACK if yes, EVAC all units for a selected apparatus Select apparatus by using the scroll buttons Clear if No, Next displays “EVAC BY SELECTION” AACK if yes, EVAC units individually Select unit by using the scroll buttons Clear if No, EVAC is cancelled and returns to normal operation
SSEMS PDR (continued) EVAC Transmission EEVAC Sent – Display “EVAC” PPDU received signal – Display “EVAC R’cved” PPDU Acknowledges – Display “EVAC CONF” PPDU Shuts down – Display “Evacuated” PASS Activation during Evacuation DDisplays “EVAC PASS” until acknowledged DDisplays “EVAC FF DOWN” after acknowledge IIf PASS is reset, Returns to EVAC signal
SEMS Operation – Shutdown SSEMS PDU Turn off the cylinder valve Bleed air off the system Double click the yellow button to shut off the electronics SSEMS PDR Receives shutdown signal DDisplays “Goodbye” Press ACK to acknowledge “Goodbye” TThis removes unit from the PDU database Press and Hold On/Off button to shut off base station AAny unit that remains in the PDU database and Reject list when shut down, will continue to be in these lists when re-started
SEMS Information – Event Log SEMS Base Station logs all transmissions between the PDU and PDR Information is stored in memory Information can be retrieved for training and/or incident review. Information Includes: Date Time Unit Information State (Transmission) Air pressure Elapsed Pack Time
Summary SSEMS Primary Functions Personal Alert Safety System Firefighter Accountability Electronic Communication
Summary - Continued SShould understand the operation of the SEMS PDU Console. Automatically turns on Yellow button is reset and acknowledge Red button is manual PASS activation Blue button is Withdrawal Display shows: PPack status information BBase station communications
SShould understand the operation of the SEMS PDR Base Station. Turning the system on Sending and receiving communications Understanding displayed information
