An important tool in any first responder or firefighters toolbox is the pre-incident plan. Having a working knowledge of how to deal with anything that the world throws at an emergency response crew can mean life or death for those involved. Sloppy planning often leads to sloppy execution, and this is why it is important to have a standard set for pre-incident planning. 

The Right Software Saves Firefighters’ Lives

Being a firefighter means you have signed up to save lives. A significant portion of your career and life is dedicated to helping others through the most difficult times they will experience. 

They will call on you when they need you the most. You will be there for them when no one else can be. You will put your safety and health on the line to make sure they have the best chance of survival. 

Who protects the firefighters? Who is there to make sure they have the best chance of making it back to the firehouse after each call? Captains and leaders bear the responsibility of making sure their team has access to everything they need to serve their communities and return home to their families after each shift. 

One of the key tools that can help improve your firefighters’ chances of survival is the right software. Software that works raises situational awareness and saves lives. We’re talking about how firefighters can benefit from great technology. 

StreetWise Response Software, a leader in developing cutting-edge solutions for emergency responders, is excited to announce the relaunch of its Responder product, a personal smartphone app for incident notification and situational awareness, with several new features and a new pricing program designed to bring the product to a wider audience.

“Previously, our Responder product was intended as a supplement to our other product offerings and really needed those integrations for customers to take advantage of all its industry-leading features. But our Responder users can’t stop singing its praises and consistently tell us it’s the best field product out there. So, we made it our goal to broaden Responder’s market by enhancing the feature set and making it more independent,” said Mark Rottenberg, Chief Revenue Officer at StreetWise.

Without first responders and emergency response personnel, where would we be? Along with preserving vital national infrastructure and services, it also helps to protect public health and safety. First responders may face risks regardless of whether the event was man-made or natural.

Whether firemen, police enforcement, or medical workers are engaged, the threats might take different forms, but the human effects are always the same.

More often than not, emergency service personnel and first responders are using outdated apparatus or very little mobile apparatus at all.  They deserve the best of the best when it comes to information and data sharing, which can help save lives and improve response times.
