Every disaster of consequence proves one thing beyond all doubt: that a simple, standard, thoroughly functional casualty triage tag is needed if we are to be serious about maximizing the survival rate of victims.
METTAG's MT-137 is the triage tag used to maximize survivors.
Tested and developed under scrutiny of doctors, nurses, firefighters, rescue personnel, industrial safety experts, travel safety directors, and civil defense specialists, the original METTAG MT-137 Triage Tag was launched in 1976.
Triage tags, of course, were nothing new even back then. Many variations of triage tags have been used over the centuries. Most tags, though, are far too complicated for rapid first response use. The need for a simple and effective triage tag without language barriers will always exist. METTAG is committed to keeping the MT-137 as close to its initial design 30 years ago, much to the appreciation of the professionals for whom it was developed.
