Passport Accountability System
By Chief of Department
March 28, 2023

Earlier today, Purchase firefighters placed our newly adopted Passport Accountability System from IMS Alliance into service. Accountability is a top priority on the fireground as it allows Incident Commanders to know who is assigned to an incident, where firefighters are operating as well as their assigned task at the incident. This system is replacing our traditional tag system and will allow for greater ability to track and account for our personnel.

Several other Fire Departments throughout Westchester County have adopted this Passport System which will allow for greater compatibility at larger scale incidents with our mutual aid partners.
