The METTAG MT-137 provides the standard triaging features needed to enable responders and rescue personnel to perform a prompt and accurate assessment of a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) victim's injuries and to quickly and easily record the data.
The MT-137 is used by U.S. military units, fire and EMT personnel, as well as a large number of federal, state and local response agencies, including the Department of Defense, Department of Corrections, and state and local Emergency Management Agencies and Operations Centers.
In the event of a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI), it is absolutely imperative that first responders have a quick, easy, and reliable method of assessing victims and assigning them with an appropriate triage or priority status, based on the severity of their injuries. The MT-137 Triage Tag has been tested and proven over 30 years to provide this method.
The MT-137 Medical Emergency Triage Tag is constructed of a high-density damage resistant synthetic material, and is printed using a special thermal printing process, allowing use in the harshest and most demanding field situations. Additionally, each Medical Emergency Triage Tag is equipped with a 30-inch elastic band, which is used for attaching the tag to the victim's body, usually around the neck or to an available limb.
Each MT-137 is coded with a unique sequential barcode serial number, which aids in the identification and tracking of victims and their belongings through the various phases of the triage and treatment processes in the field, as well as into hospital emergency care facilities. These unique serial numbers are located on both the top right and top left diagonal tear-offs, as well as on the lower color coded tear-offs.
Utilizing standard graphic symbols and a four-color tear-off triaging system, the Standard Medical Emergency Field Triage tag (MT-137) is truly a universal tool, in that it presents no language or literacy barriers, and can be used in the field by anyone of any nationality, with minimal training or hands-on experience. A consistent policy of using the MT-137 in day-to-day emergencies will automatically establish familiarity and provide faster and more effective victim triaging in the event of an actual MCI or other emergency.
If your agency or response group is in search of a high quality, reliable and easy to use field triage tag for first responders to mass casualty incidents, or for officers participating in disaster drills and response training exercises, then the MT-137 Medical Emergency Field Triage Tag is just the tool you have been searching for.
