1. A gateway device configured to be worn by a responder and to monitor interaction of the responder with equipment, the gateway device comprising:
a memory configured to store:
responder credentials; and
equipment data;
a processor in communication with the memory and configured to:
translate equipment data received from equipment in a first format according to a first protocol to a second format according to a second protocol, the translated equipment data being relayable to a computer; and
register equipment data in the memory; and
a transceiver configured to:
receive equipment data from external equipment interacting with the responder, the equipment data comprising an equipment identifier that identifies the external equipment interacting with the responder;
transmit responder credentials associated with the responder interacting with the external equipment to the computer;
detect one of an acceleration of the gateway device and a deceleration of the gateway device; and
transmit translated equipment data from the external equipment interacting with the responder associated with the responder credentials to the computer, the translated equipment data comprising the equipment identifier that identifies the external equipment interacting with the responder, the transmitting of translated equipment data being triggered by the detecting of the one of the acceleration of the gateway device and the deceleration of the gateway device;
and wherein the gateway device further comprises an accelerometer configured to:
detect an acceleration of the gateway device exceeding a first threshold; and
detect a deceleration of the gateway device exceeding a second threshold, the detecting of the one of an acceleration of the gateway device and a deceleration of the gateway device being associated with the acceleration exceeding the first threshold at a first time and the deceleration exceeding the second threshold at a second time subsequent to the first time.
