Fireground Crews Stay
Safe from High Winds
A fire and rescue service automated their weather warning procedure to trigger real-time visual and audible alarms on their portable radios when weather events threatened safe working conditions.
Before automation, fireground crews relied on remote dispatchers to monitor weather conditions and report them to the commanding officer over the radio network, causing time gaps and delays. This was resolved by installing TAIT AXIOM mobile devices equipped with on-board edge computing, application processing and workflow automation capabilities.
Now, a TAIT AXIOM mobile device with a broadband connection continuously scans RSS feeds from weather services, and automatically warns the commanding officer and firefighters of potentially threatening weather conditions by triggering a visual and audible alert on each portable radio.
