Thank you for signing up for alerts.
This standard establishes requirements intended to ensure reliable performance of personal alert safety systems (PASS) that enable emergency responders to signal or help if they get lost, disoriented, trapped, injured, or run out of breathing air during emergency operations.
Provisions cover design, performance, testing, and certification of PASS that monitor an emergency responder's motion and automatically emit an audible signal to summon aid in the event the user becomes incapacitated or needs assistance. In addition to addressing corrosion, heat, flame, impact, and vibration resistance specific topics include criteria for mode selection and motion sensing, radio system tests, and signal frequency tests.
