APX Data, the North American leader in delivering critical data management software used by Fire Departments, announces today that they are launching their latest capability called SmartMAP by APX. Richmond Fire Rescue Department will be among the first Fire Departments in North America to receive the software.
SmartMAP by APX is designed for Incident Commanders and Firefighters to access critical information or data in seconds. With a single touch, valuable information like building size, location, type, nearest fire hydrant, flow requirements/capabilities, street & satellite view, turn by turn directions and more are made visible. SmartMAP by APX can be used by all existing fire department devices — guaranteeing ease-of-access for any user.
“Having critical information such as fire flows, hydrants, structure size, etc. for all of our high risk, commercial, public and residential buildings at times of emergency is critical for our department. The APX SmartMAP is a powerful software that gives us instant access to the most critical urban information in seconds.” Deputy Chief Kevin Gray, Richmond Fire Rescue Department. “The return on investment for us is clear and instant—less risk, quicker response, less cost incurred by the department on critical calls.”
