I have a small shop in the Pocono Mountains of PA where I make Fire Department STUFF... My latest project is over 500 Accountability Tags for 15 Kentucky Fire Departments with 69 Trucks. www.AccountabilityTag.com
What I am looking for here is NEW ideas for Accountability Products by asking what is working for YOU? I have seen the Cow Tag Systems and even talked to a guy who made a System for about $25.00 after getting a quote from me. He used Aluminum Bar Stock cut into 2 inch chunks and drilled a hole in one end. Used a hammer and a Number Punch to mark the numbers and a lable machine for the Firefighter's Name. For a Accountability Board he used a Wally Mart Dry Marker Board with Coat Hanger Loops.
He was Happy and His Department got a Working System and that is what counts.
I am trying to get ready for the May PA Fire Show and developing new products to display. I already have Glow in the Dark, Anaodized Alumimum, and Formica Tags in the works. I have a Laser Engraver, Rotary Engraver, Color Sublimation Printing Equipment and a Vinyl Cutter. So I can make some interesting stuff.
I am making Epoxy Domed Accountability Tags that are very durable.
SO if anyone wants to post pictures of what you use for all to see and me to LEARN that would be GREAT. Or send me pictures via email. firstname.lastname@example.org
I know there are some Bar Code Systems and RF Systems on the market but that is beyond my capability. I could print the barcode but not make the reader.
This is a really GREAT website...
