Join career firefighter Bart van Leeuwen, of the Netherlands, as he explains his quest to leverage big data so that firefighters and community members are as safe as possible from fire.  With 20+ years of experience in the fire services, van Leeuwen instinctively knows that his data crusade has to entail more than simply putting lots of data in a firefighter’s hand.


Data has to apply to real world circumstances, offer real world solutions – and work in real time. Frontline firefighter, data expert and owner of the tech firm, netage, van Leeuwen travels the globe meeting with forward-thinking organizations to ensure that firefighters have the right information, in the most appropriate format, and only when they need it.  Our sought-after  presentation speaker shares the belief that if data is captured, combined with other relevant data, and analyzed appropriately - firefighters and communities will be safer. Come learn more about “smart" solutions, big data, possible outcomes, and the roles that each level of the fire service plays in optimizing fire safety. Regardless of your profession or your level of technical knowledge, you can expect to learn something relevant and revolutionary.
