San Diego-based VaultRMS, which developed a software platform called Exposure Tracker that allows firefighters and other first responders to document exposure to harmful substances from any device with internet access, was acquired by Envisage Technologies, an Indiana-based company that provides automated training
Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Vault RMS CEO Chris Memmott, who founded VaultRMS in 2013 as a cloud-based platform for public safety agencies, and Clive Savacool, a fire service veteran, who joined VaultRMS in 2014 and, in partnership with the International Firefighter Cancer Foundation, San Francisco Firefighter Cancer Prevention Foundation and the Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance, helped launch the Exposure Tracker platform, are joining Envisage.
“From day one our mission has been to support as many first responders as possible by tracking accurate data in relation to the toxic exposures they receive throughout their career,” Memmott said. “This acquisition is a big win for all of our stakeholders, especially the brave men and women who we’re proud to serve.”
Envisage said it plans to offer free access to VaultRMS' Exposure Tracker, which can be used by individuals and agencies, as part of its FirstForward training network.
“Our goal is to provide every first responder with a portable training record and an easy way to track exposure," said Ari Vidali, founder and CEO of Envisage. "In combination, we not only support long-term health planning but ensure that our first responders receive the education they need to minimize their exposure risks.”
