In SafeFire we focus on firefighters' health and performance conditions by proposing innovative approaches integrating physiological and environmental data monitoring, intelligent
data analysis, and effective communication mechanisms. The main objectives are to improve firefighters’ health status, prevent hazardous situations, and explore and integrate
monitored information to support team management decisions, including team rotations and special needs.
We intend to investigate gas, environmental and skin temperature, and signals of clinical relevance for the evaluation of activity patterns (including falls detection and abnormal
behaviors), health status, and physical and mental stress. Sensors and acquisition modules will be completely integrated on textile substrates for health monitoring of firefighters.
