Brandweer MDT

Mobile tablet application for real-time information and communication during emergency interventions.

The customer

Zone Centrum is the first-aid and fire brigade of 18 cities in East Flanders. The service is manned by 500 professional firefighters and 500 volunteers.

 The project

For Zone centrum, Endare developed a so called ‘Mobile Data Terminal’, a tablet app for real-time communication during interventions. The application contains critical information in GIS-layers, such as fire safety plans, location of utilities, location of other vehicles, etc… With the app, fire fighters can communicate in real-time with dispatch and with the other vehicles in the intervention by sending text messages, images or an annotated map of the situation.

The same application is also available via the browser in order for the dispatch to oversee the intervention and interact with the people in the field.
