Adding SCBA gear  (SCBA Admin only)

As part of the PSTrax service, all of your department's SCBA is organized and loaded into the platform by our team. However, as you add new users or order more gear, you will need to be able to add that gear into PSTrax. Here's how to do it:

  1. Go to Settings > SCBA > Add Gear.
  2. Fill out the necessary fields.

    Gear Type
    Gear Description
    Serial Number
    Internal ID
    Initial Cost

    Manufacturing Date - The date the gear was manufactured. Used to calculate expiration dates.
    In-Service / Issue Date - The date the gear was first issued to a crew member.
    Expiration - The date the gear expires. This will default to 15 years from the Manufacturing Date, but that can be changed or deleted manually as needed.
    Last Hydro Test - The date the cylinder was last hydroed. The next hydro test will be automatically calculated 5 years out from this date.
    Assign To - The drop down lists all active crew members in PSTrax. Since most SCBA (with the exception of masks) is assigned to trucks and/or station locations, it's typical to just leave the gear set as "Unassigned" and link the checks to the apparatus assignments.
    Add Attachment - Use this to add copies of purchase orders, pictures, warranty information, etc.
  3. Select the Save button to load the gear into the system. 
  4. To view the gear, go to SCBA Gear List.

Adding multiple SCBA items  (SCBA Admin only)

  1. Go to Settings > SCBA > Add Gear and select Add Multiple in the upper right corner.
  2. Fill out the necessary fields in the table. For dates, use the calendar to select the date or type it in manually in MM-DD-YYYY format.
  3. Select Add New Row to create a new row, which will copy the information from the previous row. Overwrite the data as necessary. If you add a new row by accident, select Delete Last Row to remove the unwanted line of data.
  4. Select the Save button to load the gear into the system. You can view the new gear by going to PPE > Gear List.
  5. To view the gear, go to SCBA > Gear List.
