FlowMSP Pre Fire Plan Software - Leveraging Building Data for a Smart Response in the 21st Century

Our Roots

FlowMSP was born the day CEO Jason Marvel accompanied Streator IL Fire Chief Bird while he gathered the information for a pre fire plan of a neighborhood building. After two and a half hours of information gathering, Jason knew a better solution had to exist. And if it didn’t he was going to create it.

Creating FlowMSP - Pre Fire Plan Software for Today's Fire Service

That spark of realization was all it took for Jason to assemble a team of developers to create the first generation of FlowMSP. Originally designed to be used with Drone images, the foundation of FlowMSP was an easy-to-use interface that gave firefighters the most critical response information needed at that moment, while requiring the least amount of interaction to get it. 

Firefighters have very little time to gather information from any place while responding to, and fighting, a fire. If FlowMSP can deliver the information in a way that incident commanders can take it in, and use it, in mere seconds, than the platform will be useful. 

FlowMSP Today

Today, years after that first spark, FlowMSP carries the basic tenets of ease-of-use and speed into a fully-developed cloud platform that allows firefighters to preplan structures in less than a minute, with annotated photos, fire flow rates, hydrants, and all the building data required by NFPA 1620, all overlaid on Google Maps Satellite imagery.

Firefighters and Incident Commanders can now view structures, roads, hydrants, preplans, and mutual aid data, all from any connected mobile device. With FlowMSP, Incident Commanders are making more well-informed decisions and company officers are starting the first steps of initial preplans when they arrive on scene. Every response asset is on the same page and following the same plan, while viewing the same building data.

FlowMSP is currently in-use at fire departments spanning five states, and is a critical part of their response protocols. To date, the platform has been used to run working warehouse fires, room and content fires, hazmat calls and activated alarms. The platform has also been part of multiple ISO audits, where it received high praise from inspectors. After adopting FlowMSP, two customers were awarded ISO Class I ratings, in part because of the extensive capabilities offered by the platform.

Finally, our team now includes dedicated developers, implementation specialists, territory sales people and content managers. FlowMSP is a fully staffed, fully capable, service company and we firmly stand behind the concept of providing the best possible source of critical information to firefighters when they need it most.

“We purchased Flow with the idea of improving our ISO score. We have found the product offers even more. FlowMSP has fast and easy access pre-plan information in the field, and the ability to share and view pre-plans from other departments in the area. We have tried other products in the past, but FlowMSP is the easiest to learn, the fastest to use, and the most impactful in the field.”
