This 50 pack of MT-137 Triage Tags are used extensively by U.S. military units, fire and EMT personnel, first responders, and 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), where multiple victims are injured and require varying degrees of medical attention, it is important that first responders have a quick, easy, and reliable method of assessing victims and assigning the appropriate triage or priority status, based on the extent of their injuries. The MT-137 Triage Tag has been proven in the field for more than 30 years.
This triage tag is constructed of a high-density damage resistant synthetic material, and is printed using a special thermal printing process. This allows use in the harshest and most demanding field situations and prevents contamination. Additionally, each Triage Tag is equipped with a 30-inch elastic band, which is used for attaching the tag to the victim's body.
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. These unique serial numbers are conveniently located on both the top right and top left diagonal tear-offs, as well as on the lower color coded tear-offs.
By utilizing standard graphic symbols and a four-color tear-off triaging system, these Triage Tags are truly universal and prevent language and literacy barriers. They can be used in the field by anyone, of any nationality, with minimal training or experience.
