PEMBROKE TOWNSHIP — A drone hovered in the air Monday as about 100 firefighters from Kankakee, Iroquois and Will counties battled a brush fire in Pembroke Township.

William Neumann, the director of communications for the Orland Park Fire Protection District, live-streamed video footage from his drone to other departments through his personal Facebook page. It helped them track the fire, protect structures and, above all else, assure nobody got injured.

“It improves accessibility and safety,” said Neumann, who started deploying his drone at house fires a year ago. “We can follow the crews and keep an eye on them. It’s like Big Brother, only you’re tracking a fire and saving time.”

What Prevents Your Department From Using Pre-Planning Software?

After dispatch, FlowMSP is only a single button click to view the pre-plan associated with that address.

Lack of pre-incident planning is the most consistent contributing factor in NIOSH LODD reports.

Most departments can field FlowMSP for less than the cost of a single set of turnout gear and one SCBA. 

FlowMSP can create an NFPA 1620 pre-plan in 10 seconds. Don’t believe us? We’ll show you!
