Emergency response for firefighters and emergency medical personnel are time-critical affairs. You need an accurate and complete view of what emergency you are responding to for the best outcomes. Lack of information or real-time updates as incident situations evolve on-site can be dangerous to first responders and the public.

With winter finally coming to an end, we finally move into warmer and brighter days. For first responders and emergency service personnel, coming out of the longer nights of winter can be mentally and emotionally challenging.

When an emergency call comes in, we want to respond as quickly and efficiently as possible. Prompt response times can save not only structures, but lives. However, rushing in blindly, headfirst, and without the appropriate information can put emergency personnel and bystanders at risk.

In a previous article, we wrote about New Year’s Resolutions for fire departments. We discussed how important it is to set the right kind of goals and develop your process for how you’re going to achieve them. Without a comprehensive plan in place, your department may be right back in the same place you were in last year. 

In his book The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote, “A goal without a plan is just a wish.” If your goal as a department is to save as many lives and protect as much property as possible, it may be just wishful thinking if you do not practice proper incident preplanning. 

In this article, we are discussing the power of effective incident preplanning, and how the right technology can help.
