The Placer County (CA) Sheriff’s Office hauled a truck—which could quite possibly be a game-changer for the fire industry—to the Dixie Fire to aid first responders, reports kcra.com.

The apparatus will serve as a central hub, connecting personnel on the ground. Officials say the mobile command vehicle can convert aerial surveillance to GPS signals, which would allow crews to know if the fire is growing and, if so, in what direction.

In addition, the GPS can help crews determine the best time to issue evacuation orders.
