all in one fire mobile apparatus solutionAsheville, North Carolina, is known throughout the country as a tourism destination. It has made its way onto a number of lists of must-visit cities. Western North Carolina welcomes upwards of ten million visitors every year. If you have ever been to the area, you can see why:

  • There are thousands of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. 
  • The Biltmore Estate is the perfect blend of beautiful scenery and historic luxury. 
  • Downtown Asheville is one of the most exciting business districts in the South. 
  • There is no shortage of world-class restaurants throughout the region. 
  • From shopping to watersports, you are never going to find yourself bored in Asheville. 

Some of those reasons are part of why people are moving to Buncombe and surrounding counties. The region has been growing rapidly for decades; however, since the beginning of the pandemic, the real estate market has been unreal. Houses are rarely on the market for more than a few days, and agents have reported properties selling sight-unseen. 

How Firefighters See the Asheville Area

While new residents see the beauty of the mountains and the incredible food and arts scenes, firefighters may see the area a little differently:

  • Firefighters see the challenges presented by the ever-changing growth. They work hard to keep up with building occupancy changes and new construction. 
  • Firefighters see the risk posed by houses and buildings being close together on often narrow streets. 
  • Firefighters recognize how difficult it is to navigate through the mountains. 
  • Firefighters know how a few months of drought can create wildfire dangers that are exasperated by the diverse terrain and hundreds of thousands of acres of forest. 
  • Firefighters see communities of people they know and love. 

Firefighters in Asheville deserve the best tools available. StreetWise Fire Apparatus Mobile Software can help firefighters and paramedics respond more quickly, efficiently, and safely.
