Infographics develops ‘world first’ fire and rescue system
Infographics provides an integrated system
A Scottish resource management solutions company has completed an integrated data system for a fire service that it believes could be a world first.
Infographics, based in South Queensferry, has provided Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service with a solution that seamlessly joins up its work and data flows across three key operations.
Resource management, emergency response, and prevention & protection are now connected by the ground-breaking project.
Howard Watts, director of community safety at Staffordshire Fire and Rescue, said it will be a key element in the creation of efficient and effective use of data across the organisation..
Russell Wood, commercial manager at Infographics, said: “The ultimate goal for any FRS [fire and rescue service] is to be able to effectively plan and manage their resources across all areas in a unified way, and to remove procedural gaps, manual processes and highly-disjointed data sets.
“If an FRS is to be able to understand the impact of their activities on risk and response, and to continually retrospect and improve, having that integrated set of data and tasks is essential.”
