PURVIS recently attended the APCO (New Orleans, Aug 3 – 6) and FRI (Dallas, Aug 13 – 16). These industry conferences provided an opportunity to present our new mobile firefighter app that works on the iOS and Android platforms. In addition to delivering incident information via smartphone to remote first responders, one of the more compelling aspects of the app is the command and control visibility that is afforded fire management and administrative staff. The image above is a screenshot of the app’s web interface that provides situational awareness to command staff. Now, supervisors, fire chiefs, dispatchers and other authorized users can:
- View all incidents and the location of mobile app users based on GPS location
- Drill into incident or user details
- Pull up a detailed list view of everything going on in the district
- Generate dashboard reports based on historical and real-time information to determine utilization, average turnout times and other metrics that can drive department improvement.
In this picture, Jeff Mascola, Product Manager for PURVIS Systems, is discussing the new mobile firefighter app with some interested fire department representatives at the FRI conference in Dallas. The Purvis Station Control Unit with integrated control display can be seen in the background.
