Fire Marshals and Inspectors for far too long have relied on ringed binders full of codes and hand-written reports to inspect the buildings of their communities for fire safety. This outdated system of reporting throttles productivity and can lead to errors of astronomical effect.
What is needed is a software-based solution. One that integrates standard and custom codes into a platform that enables fire marshals to do their inspections accurately in less time, with no paper, confusion or hassle.
Fire Departments should be able to effectively and instantly communicate their reports and pre-plan information to incident commanders to ensure the safety of first responders. This information also needs to be available to the appropriate authorities to make certain that violations are corrected and public safety is upheld.
