First Responder Jackets 2.0

For emergency first responders, the right technology can be the factor that ends up saving lives, so the CHASE LifeTech FR jacket serves an important purpose. Designed by Nokia, Kolon (a South Korean fashion brand), and Gina (a Czech Republic-based software developer), the jacket is laden with technological capabilities that help both responders and their supervisors to better plan for and act on emergencies.

The jacket looks similar to any other that a police officer or firefighter might wear, but it has technological capabilities beyond those of a normal garment. It has a space in the sleeve for sensors that track things like heart rate, temperature, GPS, and more. However, those sensor modules can easily be replaced depending on the specific needs of the responder: a firefighter might use a carbon monoxide detector while a police officer might switch in a body camera, for example.
