Mid West Wales FRS

24 February 2020

Torchwood are pleased to report that we have supplied all RFID hardware requirements for Mid West Wales FRS.

This includes readers for all 58 of their fire stations to complete an asset inventory on every Fire Appliance within the service using RFID tags previously supplied by Torchwood. This will enable the equipment on each appliance (up to 350 items) to be checked and validated within 3-4 minutes saving many hours of labour using a manual tick sheet system.

The second part of the project includes the use of fixed RFID readers / antennas in cabinets to be installed in each Fire station to manage the stockholding and distribution of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)  It is estimated that this will reduce the overall stockholding by 35% and make substantial savings / efficiencies in the usage, maintenance and purchase of new PPE.

Following successful installations with 3 separate Fire & Rescue Services Torchwood has been nominated as the preferred supplier for RFID Tags for the whole of the UK Fire & Rescue Service. The 3 minute video presentation from Warwickshire Fire & Rescue Service illustrates the concept employed using our Torchwood RFID tags.

Torchwood has provided sequential barcoded tags for Asset Management in a number of NHS Hospitals. These tags are highly ruggedised produced in both resin and laminate using specialist adhesives that will stick to any surface and provide longevity where other tags fail. As a result asset file uploads and storage can be automated and a single point of control established to ensure that all data is accurate that ensures total governance security and control over all assets. All health care regulatory bodies such FDA, NHS, and the EU are introducing compulsory unique coding to ALL medical devices. Contact us for more information.
