Emergency Response Decision Support System (ERDSS), known as Chemical Companion, is used by many first responders for on-scene decision support when chemical agents are involved.
ERDSS Version 4.8 is now available free of charge to fire departments, law enforcement and the military. It's available as a standalone application for environments without internet connectivity and includes:
- New chemical threats and precursors.
- New chemical detectors.
- Updated detector data.
- New decision support tools for chemical and biological destruction, fire combustion, munitions identification, air management and more.
- Searchable reference material on thousands of common chemicals and synonyms, personal protective equipment (PPE), chemical detection equipment and more.
For a full list of updated features, supported operating systems and a video demonstration for Version 4.8, visit ChemicalCompanion.org.
