The FIRE App is a mobile command assistance and information system for commanding fire fighter officers. The app allows for making use of the travel time on the approach to a mission for gaining information on the location: e.g. 3d maps give insights how many levels the involved building has, how the surrouding structural situation is like and whether alternative access from the rear side is possible. If there is a fire plan available it will be shown immideately, as well where the next fire hydrant is located at. On top of that the app displays which units and special forces are on-site or which are alerted and when they will arrive. That gives a detailed overview on the units involved, even in huge or increasing situations.
The FIRE App is developed and distributed by BananaGlue GmbH, a company that has been developing mobile applications very successfully since 2009.
