RESPONDER

Abstract

Working for the fire department is one of the most demanding and dangerous jobs there is. Succesfully performing an emergency operation in a safe and efficient manner requires a lot of teamwork, thorough strategy and organization.
The person responsible for organization and the operation as a whole is the rescue leader. His job is to gather information about the emergency and set up an efficient strategy.
The rescue leader controls the “rescue vehicle”, a medium sized vehicle housing equipment and acting as a point of command / communication hub on site.
This project aims to explore possible ways of improving the efficiency of the rescue leaders’ workflow. The result is a holistic concept providing the fire department with faster information gathering and an extensive platform for setting up plans and strategies utilizing modern technologies. Allowing for preemptive management of resources, efficient excecution and a more streamlined and succesful rescue operation.
