How to Keeping Fire Departments Compliant & Communities Safer – APX Data

Easy-to-use Mobile Software Is Helping Fire Departments Make Decisions In Seconds

You deserve simple tools for your fire department – smart mobile technology and applications that allow first responders to collect, manage and view all hazardous materials, commercial high-risk public building information, residential properties, and much more in your community. First responders need to receive critical information as they roll out of the fire station, such as location, structure size, where their assets and risks are. Decisions are formulating in seconds now, before arriving on the scene, this is a dramatic improvement in response.

Smart mobile technology has enabled fire departments to easily meet compliance requirements.

The second big portion your fire department can receive help with, by using the right pre-plan, inspection and investigation software, is compliance. Knowing your community is protecting your community. Smart mobile technology has enabled fire departments to easily meet compliance requirements and making sure the community is aware of risks and becomes safer by identifying those risks. Imagine having all of this in the palm of your firefighter’s hands – your entire community information, in the palm of your hand. 

It’s clear to fire departments that a picture is worth a thousand dispatched words.

The last thing APX Data is helping fire departments with is interoperability, we know fire departments work on mutual aid agreements. Sharing information is a major factor in being able to work towards a positive response. Imagine multiple vehicles arriving at the scene trying to figure out what their role and responsibility is, and by all having the same information it’s clear to fire departments, who are using APX Data, that a picture is worth a thousand dispatched words. The faster you can identify hazards and assets, the faster you can make the best decisions to protect your team and your community.
