(Calling All Fire Chiefs)
- Would you work in a commercial building without proper fire code compliance?
- Would you live in a community without properly trained firefighters?
- Would you raise your family in a state without proper firefighting capability?
If any of the above were true right now… would this concern you?
Firefighting has come a long way in the last 30 years and standards are the main reason why risk and liability have been reduced; we all know and often take it for granted and if anyone ever questions standards and compliance, your Fire Department must take notice.
Standards are in place to ensure that everyone knows the “rules” and are compliant. As standards evolve over time, so do Fire Departments to best prepare their communities for potential risk. Kind of like dealing with Covid has led to changes to SOPs and other standards.
The industry knows the fire service has standards; NFPA, FUS, ISO, CAFI, IAFC, NIST, FEMA to name a few, yet every day our team hears the same thing over and over when talking to firefighters;
“We are not able to keep up with the standards unless we modernize.”
Protecting your community, meeting standards, reducing risk, and leveraging tools like your smartphone. It’s as easy as Kodak once said, “Just Point and Shoot”. Just last year, it was estimated that over 1.4 TRILLION photos were taken on smartphones, and a picture easily becomes 1,000 dispatched words!
Today’s modern Fire Department can easily be capturing real-time data, it’s already happening and being done, and communities are safer: just ask any department that has modernized!
“With (smart technology), our emergency crews now have instant access to hydrants, emergency shut-offs, protection equipment, maps, and more. Pre-incident planning carries many benefits for Emergency Responders and their community… This planning ahead can aid in reducing a community’s insurance rating, assist firefighters in reducing risk and ultimately save lives.” Central York Fire
“To save lives, protect properties and build safer communities”
After 30 years of personally helping fire departments modernize and adopt new ways to communicate and respond to emergencies, I know that today’s firefighter is now better positioned to prevent disasters from happening! Contact us to learn how to get caught up quickly with standards.
