Emergency Fire Response with Critical Real-Time Data

In fire departments across the United States, emergency calls are received by the dispatch center, which transmits and coordinates critical information to response units. Fire incident commanders responding to the incident and on the scene must take down essential information transmitted to them via radio, jotting it down on notepads or even on their hands. In some instances, they don't have the critical information that the dispatchers have at their fingertips to manage operations or incident responses.
