Some of the features of this digital Field Operations Guide include:
Video Tutorials that will be updated on a regular basis and automatically loaded onto your App device.
Shoring Calculators that allow you to generate a cut-list with one take-off measurement.
Interactive Command Checklists that include an elapsed time function to assist with training, as well as being a tool that helps rescuers lay the framework for safe efficient rescues.
Icons within the App denote Level 1 and Level 2 standards for each procedure.
All levels of rescuers will find this a valuable reference tool with state of the art illustrated rescue procedures.
The goal of this App is to assist rescuers with performance of technical rescue skills and procedures in order to meet the U.S. national standard for consistency safety and competency. This guide is based on U.S. NFPA 1006 Standard for Technical Rescuer Qualifications.
This app covers Rope Rescue, Technical Rescue, Swift Water Rescue, Mountain Rescue, Confined Space Rescue, Helicopter Rescue, Structural Collapse Rescue, Rescue Medical procedures, FEMA and NIMS ISC for disaster incident command.
AC Motor also contains calculators for both balanced and unbalanced 3-phase power. It will calculate apparent power (kVA), active power (kW) and reactive power consumption (kVAR), as well as mechanical power and torque output.
It does not cover all possible scenarios that an engineer or electrician might encounter, just the most common, ie continuous duty, non-design E, low voltage (≤ 600 V), integral Hp, 3 phase induction motors.
Conductor ampacities, full load currents and component sizing are based on the 2011 National Electrical Code (NFPA-70).
A great tool for electrical engineers, electricians and plant maintenance personnel.
If you are just looking for a fast, accurate tool for hazards identification based on the NFPA safety diamond or you are trying to quiz yourself till you’ve memorized the hazard diamond values cold, you may want to look at our Hazmat Placards app.
BUT, if you also want to have a record of where specific hazards are found, this is the app for you.
With a placard in front of you, tap the colored squares on the image of the NFPA hazard diamond to dial in the values for each section and then press Decode to get the hazard details. (Or, just press and hold a square to see a cheatsheet on the values for that particular hazard category.)
If this is a placard you want to be able to locate again later, press Save, use the Map button to record the current location (or adjust it if you aren’t right in front of the placard), and save the placard for later reference.
If you ever need to see where placards are near you or get an overview of where several hazmat diamonds are in relationship to one another, use the My Placards button to pull up a list of all the placards you’ve recorded. Press Show All and see the placards displayed against a map. Zoom in or out to see precise locations or get the big picture.
The calculation portion performs several often used calculations for hose pressure, water needs and hose flow. The calculations it supports are:
Hose Friction Calculation
Required Pump Pressure Calculation
Fire Flow Calculation (NFA)
FireFlow Calculation (Iowa)
NFPA 1231 Water Supply Calculation
Nozzle Reaction Calculation
Fog Nozzle Reaction Calculation
Nozzle Flow Calculation
The Placards section provides images of the various USDOT Hazardous Materials Transportation Placards from Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49, Transportation.
Included are images from all Class 1-9 placards. After clicking on the placards, the text description that applies to each placard is provided as well.
