Firefighting department in cooperation with the mobile phone service providers can send automatic alert to all residents and passers-by via SMS in case of fire in a building.

The systems of the mobile phone service providers know who are near by a specific location at any given time. The firefighting depart can send the location of the fire to the Mobile phone service providers and the mobile phone service providers can send automatic alert the building residents and passers-by.
The SMS alerts can go instantly and automatically through specific sensors and apps.

This service is easy to be provided through LBS (location based services) provided by telecom service providers.
