Fire-fighters are trained rescuers especially in extinguishing hazardous fires and saving lives from dangerous situations however they tend to put their lives at risk while on the job. Statistic shows the number of deaths of fire-fighters while on the job are still high up to this year and a higher percentage of rapid fire progress and exertion are dedicated to the cause of death of fire-fighters while on the job. Therefore, a real-time monitoring on the physiological state for fire-fighters is something crucial to be done. However, the Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia practices the traditional communication method which is by communicating via walkie-talkie. The practice of real-time assessment should be carried out by Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia in order to avoid having a fire-fighter’s live at risk. This could be achieved by using the ARMOR (Android Based Real Time Monitoring System) whereby it can transmit voice data and physiological data such as heart rate, respirator rate, peak acceleration and posture. Based on the research and critical analysis, an android platform have been found to be a suitable selection as it supports Bluetooth Wi-Fi and Radio Frequency, accessible from any android devices and it is user friendly. As a result, a real-time intelligent monitoring system was successfully developed on an android platform. The physiological data for heart rate, respiration rate, posture, and peak acceleration was successfully transmitted and monitored on an android device at real-time.
