This is the first step in creating a truly dynamic fire calculator. If you have any input, comment or bugs, please let us know so that we can continue to improve.
Quick data entry is paramount when determining what to pump on scene. Input on mobile devices can be tedious and sometimes difficult when forwarding the latest joke to your crew. Now imagine typing all the hose lengths, various flows and nozzle pressures when your at the “big one”! You can’t delay and recalling rote memorized hydraulic formulas can be difficult at 3am.
Most of the app is structured in a step-by-step fashion leading to the eventual calculated data, I.e. PDP, FL, etc. It was designed to be intuitive and easy to use. Please let me know what you would like to add, change or otherwise improve as this app is for you.
I'm rapidly developing and hope to add some seriously cool features for my brothers and sisters in the fire service across the globe. Stay connected!
- Friction Loss Calculator: An easy way to calculate your hose lines for different types of hoses
- Hydrant Flow: Calculate the maximum discharge flow of your hydrants
- Tanker Shuttle Calculator: Calculate how much water can be transported to a wildlandfire
- Portable Pump: Calculate the real flow of your portable pumps
Calculate with metric units (Liter) or US units (Gallons).
Have a look at the training video for this APP and you can clearly see how it will improve your firefighting career!

Maps can be created offline without an internet connection. Map layers are cached for offline support
MULTIPLE MAP LAYERS:
MAP EXPORT FORMATS
Multiple points can be drawn on the map and exported in the same email. The map data can be exported as:
* GPX (suitable for ArcGIS, MapDesk and other popular GIS products)
* KML (suitable for Google Maps & Google Earth)
* CSV (suitable for Microsoft Excel & Google Spreadsheets)
GOOGLE DRIVE & DROPBOX SUPPORT
You can now share maps via Email, Google Drive, Dropbox and other file sharing apps.
1. Create a map with FireMapper
2. Click the 'Send Map As..' button and select 'Google Drive' & kml format.
3. Share your map on Google Drive (users can view map on Google Maps).
The android version does not support drawing and recording lines. This will be included in a future release.

A *real* Fire Service calculator. Provides Friction Loss (including Appliances, Elevation, and Nozzle pressure), Pump Discharge Pressure, Smoothbore Flow Calc, and Hydrant Calculator (including residuals). Allows user defined coefficients. Even allows Voice input on most fields - no fumbling with tiny keyboards!
The app uses FL=C*GPM²*L.
*All hose lengths are in 100' segments no 50' lengths*
I need your suggestions to make the app better! Please comment!
For customization, look for FireCalc Pro (now available in the Market).

Developed for you by SpotFire to make life a bit easier for wildland firefighters.
To use this app, you need Fahrenheit and Feet for your units. Input your Air Temp, Wet Bulb Temp, and Elevation and mash the button, your RH Value as a percentage will appear on the screen. Simple as that.
Thank you for your feedback.
This app has NO ads, NO permissions and requires NO network connection once installed.
The RH CALC is also available in the SpotFire IRPG and SpotFire IRPG-FULL

With the Hcalc App you can find the pressure loss in pipework using the Hazen Williams formula which is specified in the NFPA 13 and EN 12845 for fire sprinkler systems. You can changed any of the 3 variables, flow, C-factor and the pipes internal diameter and the pressure loss will be calculated.
The second part of the calculator is used to solve the K-factor formula given the flow, K-factor or pressure at a nozzle or fire sprinkler head given the other two factors. By using the slider controls to vary any of the variables (flow, K factor, pressure) you can see the effect they have instantly.
Please remember to press the calculate button after you have made a change!
This version is in metric units only.
It is possible to set multiple phone numbers for message receipt. The application remembers all alarms and augments the last of them. It is possible to set different alarm sounds, quick answer to any number or set silent mode or vibration.
FREE United States Air Force PFA (Physical Fitness Assessment) Calculator. Includes exemptions AND the 1.0 mile walk! Just change your preferences from Menu Button->Preferences. UNCHECK the components you wish to be exempt from. :-)
Would anyone be willing to work on new icons and graphics for the app? If so, please contact me. :-)
Thank you all for your comments! I make my enhancements based on the comments and your emails.
Since I am unable to test every single point calculation, please let me know if your scores differ from what the HAWC/FAC calculate. It is most likely a small transcribing error by copying point values down from the AFI. Just shoot me an e-mail with the details and I'll fix it immediately.
Upcoming / Todo List:
1) Redesign (with tablet support) v3.0
Cylinder calculations can be done to solve for extension / retraction forces or speeds.
Pump calculations can also be done by entering combinations of displacement, oil flow and pressure to determine values for speed, torque and power. Both mechanical and volumetric efficiencies can be used in these calculations.
Hydraulic line calculations can also be done for fluid velocity, cross sectional area, Reynolds number and pressure drop. The free version is limited to 1” or 25mm line diameters.
Orifice calculations can also be made using three parameters: Oil Flow, Orifice Diameter and Pressure Drop. Enter any two values and have the third calculated.
Speed - Torque - Power page: Enter any two values have the third calculated. Unit conversions built into the page.
Calculations can be done in either metric or imperial units. Basic unit conversions are also available.
Cylinder characteristics can be entered in a number of different ways(Paid version only). Enter hydraulic flow, cylinder velocity, or stroke time and calculate the other two. User can also enter Hydraulic pressure, extend force or retract force and have the other two calculated.
One application for this is to measure the stroke time of a cylinder. By entering this with the bore diameter and stroke length, the system flow is calculated.
Full motor & pump calculation page(Paid version only). The motor & pump calculator are flexible tools in which the user can enter any three known values to have the remaining values calculated. Values include: displacement, oil flow, pressure, rotational speed, torque, and motor power. Both mechanical and volumetric efficiency values are used.
