The fire service and other emergency first responders are currently benefiting from enhanced-existing and newly-developed electronic technologies. Fire fighters are now operating in an ever increasing sensor rich environment that is creating vast amounts of potentially useful data. The "smart" fire fighter of tomorrow is envisioned as being able to fully exploit select data to perform work tasks in a highly effective and efficient manner.The Smart Fire Fighter of the Future Webinar provides a summary of a project to develop a research roadmap for smart fire fighting, which establishes the scientific and technical basis for achieving the vision for Smart Fire Fighting in the United States. The vision for smart firefighting is based on creating, storing, exchanging, analyzing, and integrating information from a wide range of databases and sensor networks. This project will seek to achieve this vision by addressing all the applicable topic areas of the fire service emergency responder community, including:
- Fire Fighting PPE & Equipment -- All equipment and gear on-board and directly attached to an individual when operational.
- Fire Fighting Apparatus & Equipment -- All fire fighting apparatus and equipment used at an emergency incident not in physical contact with the individual when operational, including vehicles and robotic delivery systems.
- Building Systems -- All monitoring, data and control systems integral to buildings, including but not limited to electrical, security, environmental, safety, inventory and property protection systems.
- Infrastructure and Community Data Systems -- All data systems not included in the three aforementioned topic areas and intended to include data such as from public utilities, weather, vehicular traffic (e.g., passenger vehicle telematics, rail traffic, etc) and computer aided dispatch.
Who Will Benefit: Emergency Responders, Fire Service, Fire Chiefs, Fire Fighters, Fire Marshals, Fire Protection Engineers, Researchers
