Ground Zero Emergency Response is looking to improve the way responders and disaster aid help and keep track of those in need. What we are proposing is a medical wrist band that contains crucial information, tracking number, and is color coordinated based on their current condition. These armbands will help speed up the medical aid process through organization and will help those who are close to them find them once they are in better condition.
- Video Overview
- In this Module, I am looking to improve how we identify and keep track on victims in a emergency situation. The method I propose to do this would be to have color coded wristbands for each person based on their ailment or injury, and have them treated accordingly.
- To do this, I have created a criteria to determine what kind of wristband each patient would have when found or receiving treatment. The bands themselves will tell the patient's injury, status as of the last checkpoint, and where to send them should they need more than first aid.
- When the first responders find a victim, they will assess their current physical and mental state, and keep it noted as they transport them to first aid. Once at first aid, a wristband will be created for the patient and given to them, along with first aid and future medical or bodily necessities. If the patient needs further medical need, they will be transported to a more supplied medical facility and organized by their wristbands.
- Following their care, they will be re evaluated to make sure their condition has not worsened or changed drastically.
- Once the patients have returned to their home after the clean up, we will update their medical records in the event another disaster strikes.

- As a user, they should want to make sure they get the proper help, have their family notified, and get the right treatment. When a victim from a hurricane needs help, they need water, food, a place to sleep thats not filthy, and some medication. As a group dedicated to helping those who are in these disasters, we have a blueprint to follow that should aid in the recovery effort.
- As a responder, when they first find a victim they should remove any lingering issue they may have, and then transport them to the first aid and treatment zone
- Help victims into transport and bring to treatment zone
- Line up those who can stand and take note of them as they enter the check in tent. For those who can't stand take note of key info.
- When a patient comes into the tent, the doctor or staff will collect data from the patient like name, age, gender, race, and known ailments. Their photo will then be taken as their info is imputed and documented.
- The staff will then escort the patient to their designated tent based on the wristband they received based on their ailment. Once there they will be given a evaluation.
- After evaluation first aid is given as the records are sent (if applicable) to a future medical centers for further help
- As a patient, they should receive quality service and the correct help based on their ailments
- Victim is helped out and transported by first responders
- Stands in line and is checked in by medical staff at camp
- Gives basic info to doctor and staff, has photo taken
- Is given wristband based on ailment and is directed to tent based on issue. Receives aid and evaluation.
- Sent to medical center if more medical help is needed
