First Responder Support Tools

FiRST provides police, firefighters, security, and emergency management personnel easy access to map-based improvised explosive device (IED) standoff distances and hazmat spill evacuation areas. The IED standoff data is based on the 2016 Emergency Response Guide (ERG) and FEMA 426, Reference Manual to Mitigate Potential Terrorist Attacks Against Buildings. Users can also define custom IED types and standoff. Hazmat evacuation and reference data is based on the 2016 ERG.

Features of the software include:

- Display IED Mandatory Evacuation and Shelter-in-Place Zones for 8 pre-defined bomb sizes and user defined custom IED types

- Display Isolation Zones and down-wind Protection Zones for over 3,000 chemicals

- Display distance to glass breakage, injury, and structural damage based on bomb size

- Information displayed on Google Maps, with similar functionality to zoom, search by address, current location, and map/satellite/hybrid views

- Automatically retrieve current weather from Weatherbug (www.weather.weatherbug.com) or forecast weather from the National Weather Service (US only) or Meteorologisk Institutt (Worldwide); weather can also be user input or input using the phone’s compass functionality

- Run roadblock analysis service that identifies within seconds the optimal location of roadblocks to isolate the incident area

- Place and label points on the map to identify key locations

- One-button summary of results (text, map image, map data shape and kml file attachments) in an email to disseminate to other responding personnel
