RealView, LLC, which provides mobile inspection and emergency pre-plan programs said seven additional fire departments have implemented its CommandScope Emergency Pre-Plan.
The expansion includes the Glencoe (Ill.) Department Of Public Safety; Vail (Colo.) Fire And Emergency; the Albemarle (N.C.) Fire Department; the Mammoth Lakes (Calif.) Fire Protection District; the City Of Vandalia (Ohio) Division Of Fire; the Laconia (N.H.) Fire Department; and the North Richland Hills (Texas) Fire Department.
Designed to combat fires with advance strategy and actionable information, CommandScope from RealView provides first responders with an electronic pre-plan vital for a more effective emergency response. With detailed building construction and fire protection information including site plans, floor plans, building hazards, geographical maps and photos, the company said first responders head to the scene of emergencies empowered to respond with knowledge rather than by trial and error, saving time and lives.
“An awareness of what we’re walking into is the most valuable asset a fire department or any first responder can have,” said Capt. James Langdon of the North Charleston (S.C.) Fire Department. “The advanced capability and detailed information we receive from RealView’s CommandScope is more than we imagined possible.”
RealView said three additional hi-rise buildings in downtown Chicago recently subscribed to its CommandScope Emergency Pre-Plan Program – the John Hancock Center, Manulife Financial’s 191 North Wacker Dr. and 625 North Michigan Ave.
The CommandScope Program is accessible in each building through touch screen computers in lobby security areas and includes floor plans, construction details, fire protection information and photographs.
