Instant Access to Fire Service Pre-Plans

Posted by Andy Bozzo on Jul 15, 2019 1:35:11 PM

Everyone has heard the expression, “knowledge is power”. This is a great sentiment, but what is even more powerful is having instant access to the information you need, when you need it, in an easy to interpret format. 

In the fire service, having up-to-date pre-fire plans and reference documents is critical to support response, training and ISO ratings. By knowing the layout and construction of a building, including the locations of fire protection systems, stairwells, emergency exits, etc. first responders can provide optimal protection for occupants and property while enhancing the performance and safety of responding personnel.

Posted by Tony Vanneman on Mar 27, 2019 12:03:02 PM

Yes? Great! Here’s why…

In addition to cost sharing, standardized communications and closest unit dispatching, departments sharing a computer aided dispatch (CAD) system with neighboring agencies are able to share a mobile response and incident management software like Tablet Command.

Using  iPads and Smartphones, this mobile solution supports every aspect of emergency response including notification, resource status in CAD, navigation, access to pre-plans, hydrant locations and incident management.

Radios: Leave them on? Turn them off? Or.....

Posted by Patrick Harper on Jan 16, 2019 10:36:21 AM

                                      


Recently, I attended an  in-service instructor class taught by a well-respected  subject matter expert. This was a one time only event, so the room was packed. Unfortunately I was seated next to a firefighter with a portable radio.

Inevitably, a run was dispatched, and everyone  was distracted by the radio traffic between responders and the dispatch center.

New Year!  New Technology?

Posted by Tony Vanneman on Jan 4, 2019 8:27:39 AM
Technology is changing very quickly in our world.  New software versions are released before we get used to the changes from the last version. Wearable devices, 5G cellular capabilities and 3D printers are just a few examples of new advances. Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence are advancing rapidly and will bring exciting (and more rapid) changes to how we interact with technology.

Sadly, I did have a fire there at 3 o’clock in the morning on a night that found the motel at full capacity. What made this incident even more concerning was that it was my very first fire as an Acting Battalion Chief.

As Firefighters and Paramedics we must often make critical decisions during very dynamic, time-compressed and stressful situations. We have all attended trainings such as High Rise Firefighting Command and Rapid Intervention Crew Deployment that have included tactical worksheets, checklists and other reference materials.
