The EMT3 Optimized All Risk ®; Wristband Triage Tag is specifically engineered as an integral part of the new EMT3 (Enhanced Method of Triage, Treatment and Transportation) System. It features updates such as a larger, more detailed Transportation Receipt, an added Ambulance receipt, and a repositioned Contamination strip now located at the bottom of the tag. This forces determination as to whether patient is contaminated or not before triage. We've added a Red/Yellow/Green RE-TRIAGED check circle receipt above Morgue making it possible to downward triage without deploying a second triage tag. We have also added a shortened tag number for easier radio transmission.
When the capacity of a community or country to respond and recover from a disaster is overwhelmed, and upon request from the National Society, the International Federation uses its regional and international networks, assets and resources to bring assistance to the communities and National Red Cross Red Crescent Society which is assisting them. At an international level the International Federation advocates with Governments, international organisations and humanitarian donors for better practice and accountability in disaster management and greater respect of the dignity of the vulnerable people.
