The Fire-QRVS system allows firefighters to use their smartphones to access real-time information about who is responding to an incident as well as their estimated time of arrival. The app provides additional functionality when the first member arrives on scene. The "On Scene" feature can be used to send a Google Maps link with the exact location of the incident to responding members.
Two additional quick communication features in the app ensure firefighters receive accurate and relevant information quickly. The console at the fire hall can send messages or call any members in the Fire- QRVS system and the app allows for quick text messaging back to the console. Additionally, a “Stand Down” feature communicates information regarding incident containment or a false alarm.
Firefighters continually risk their lives to protect the communities they serve. The Fire-QRVS system provides information that keeps firefighters safe and ensures that resources are deployed with maximum efficiency.
