Providing rural forest fire fighters with situational awareness is critical to ensure their safety. It also ensures tasks are coordinated and performed to the best of their ability with all the knowledge available.
The TracMap combination of cloud based task allocation and reporting system, combined with robust in vehicle GPS guidance, allows the easy transfer of critical information to multiple vehicles from a central base, ensuring that fire fighters are presented with the most accurate information available.
TracMap understand that many rural fire fighters are volunteers, so technology that requires minimal training and is easy and intuitive to use is vital. TracMap have recently undertaken two successful trials with Rural Firefighting agencies, and would welcome further opportunity to assess the solution. Assessments have been undertaken with vehicles such as bulldozers for creating fire breaks, controlled burn offs and rural fire engines.
Features INCREASED SAFETY, PRODUCTIVITY GAINS, AND REDUCED ERRORS - Two way data sending - Send Jobs to the GPS Guidance on the field, and receive task updates wirelessly (cellular coverage required – however, option for Satellite Communication is being considered) - Ensures accurate sharing of information - Information displayed on large easy to read screen - Less confusion - Institutional knowledge captured Reduced paperwork - Hazards and points of interest can be marked and captured in the field for sharing to other vehicles (i.e. Water pick up points) - Easily train new staff
ONE SOURCE OF THE TRUTH Changes made in one central location and updated to TracMap GPS Guidance in the fields - Fire Boundaries - Forestry Roads - Hydrants - Water Pickup points - Fire Breaks - Contours - Details from the field recorded by the GPS Guidance updated centrally - Reporting sent wirelessly to web for easy access
STRAIGHTFORWARD REPORTING - Integration with GIS systems, via API or template upload - Easy recording of completed jobs with associated notes - Timely and accurate reporting - Assistance with debrief - Capture of information for later (i.e. How many times water sourced from private property)
