Situational Awareness to Buy


The FireWhat App puts critical incident information into the palm of the wildland firefighter’s hand.

For the first time ever, wildland and structural, paid and volunteer firefighters have access to pre-

incident arrival information. Currently, firefighters receive little to no information prior to arriving at

the scene of a wildland fire. The FireWhat App gives responders visibility of homes in the area, creeks

for water sources and areas for staging before they even arrive on scene. With this app, firefighters

and commanders will be able to make pre-arrival considerations, allowing more time for critical life-

saving decisions. The vital information provided by this app will save lives and property and will reduce

responder errors in a critical time of need.
