The Vital Responder (VR) system has been developed 
under the CMU Portugal Program between 2009 and 2012. 
Being designed for fire-fighters (FF) – the most demanding 
professional scenarios among first responders – the VR 
project has generated a large number of devices, 
methodologies and know-how that are fostering other newly 
funded projects for some other hazardous professionals, 
such as Policemen or Paramedics.
