Multinational communications company Nokia worked with South Korean fashion brand Kolon to create a jacket for first responders. The CHASE (connected health and safety equipment) LifeTech FR (first responders) jacket features the classic neon yellow color of typical first responder gear but features many new capabilities.

According to Engadget, the coat comes equipped with modular sensors, capable of tracking GPS location and heart rate, amongst other things. The information collected from the coat is sent back to the station, allowing the management system to examine and help keep the first responders safe by tracking them if they go missing or by determining if they are too tired from being overworked.
