Realizing the Vision of Smart Fire Fighting

Blog Post created by mikehazell Employee on Jan 16, 2015

Casey Grant's article in the January issue of IEEE's magazine for high-tech innovators "Potentials", has challenged a whole new audience to consider the needs of the fire service and how cyber-physical systems might meet them.  Co-authored with leaders on this topic from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the article stimulates the next generation of information systems experts to consider how this technology can connect with the physical world of fire fighting - in the WUI, in high risk incidents like train derailments and large scale warehouse fires, and even in residences. 

Its our hope that the Foundation's activity to bridge these two worlds will help realize the NFPA mission of a fire safe world.  Look for future reports, webinars, and conferences on this topic.
