Enhancing situational awareness for Fire Officers

Made by Aastha Bhargava



As Firefighters enter burning structures to save lives, Incident Commanders work behind the scenes to ensure their safety and successfully resolve incidents. In these time-sensitive and life-threatening environments, Commanders find their attention splintered. Overwhelmed by simultaneously juggling of tasks, they are often required to make quick decisions without adequate information.

Insight is a platform designed to allow Commanders to focus more on management and less on tools. Firefighters wear sensors to track their location, heath status, and performed activities, enabling them to focus on extinguishing fires and rescuing people, and less on radio communications. A dashboard alerts the Commander when challenges arise to expedite decision making.
