Triage Tags make the job of sorting and prioritizing that much faster. Tags add organization, aids tracking of patients and focuses rescuers to the job of Triage. Triage Tags come with a string attached and already tied.Simply hang around the neck of the victim. Then just tear off the perforation color coded portion of the tag for the appropriate category.
These Triage Tags come with additional spaces for you to put in even more detailed information in the Disaster First Aid area. Along with bar coding for computerized tracking these labels have the new Contamination icons. All CERT team members should carry them in their emergency Search & Rescue CERT backpacks.
For Emergency Response Teams and School Disaster Teams performing Triage, the availability of Triage Tags means less chaos, rapid evaluations and prioritization by tagging quickly you can then move the victims quickly into the first aid area for treatment.
