Wildfire Pro puts critical incident information into the palm of the wildland firefighter’s hand. For the first time ever, wildland and structural, paid and volunteer firefighters have access to pre-incident arrival information. Currently, firefighters receive little to no information prior to arriving at the scene of a wildland fire. Wildfire Pro gives responders visibility of homes in the area, creeks for water sources and areas for staging before they even arrive on scene. With this app, firefighters and commanders will be able to make pre-arrival considerations, allowing more time for critical life-saving decisions. The vital information provided by this app will save lives and property and will reduce responder errors in a critical time of need.
The app provides life-saving information for firefighters, responders, and residents of fire prone areas including current weather conditions at the scene of major incidents. As information becomes available, Wildfire Pro provides perimeter tracking and map imagery to direct responders and commanders to areas in highest danger.
The app features a suite of wildland applications for firefighters in the field. Common guides, safety check lists and procedures have been built into the app. The application also hosts fire calculators that will help firefighters understand how the fire will burn, in what direction, and how intense the expected fire behavior may be based on manual data input.
Disclaimers: Information in this app is updated as incident information becomes available and after the daily National Morning Situation Report. Fire perimeter imagery not available for every fire.
