Citizen First Responders: Pre-Planning Engaging Citizens
May 26, 2013 Richard M30

“We cannot be effective or efficient fire fighters if all of our efforts are skill oriented or reactive in nature...Our lack of knowledge can often lead to no-win situations where not only do we lose life and the property we are charged to protect, but we sacrifice ourselves in what amounts to a suicide mission.” -Clarence White

Citizen First Response is an application to provide first responders with basic building information via crowd-sourcing, which can be later expanded by trained inspectors. Working on desktops and mobile devices, residents update their personal information. Then using their camera & built-in symbols answer pointed topics which locate important utilities. The application then becomes a powerfull database for first responders to access, update, share information.
