Pre-incident planning software to replace the binders and give firefighters their time back

In the summer of 2016, FlowMSP founder Jason Marvel spent the afternoon watching Chief Gary Bird of the Streator Fire Department spend two hours pre-planning the Streator Public Library.

After finishing the long, manual data gathering process in the hot sun, Chief Bird returned to his office and transcribed the pre-planning information he had just gathered into his records management system.

Having watched this tedious process, Jason asked Chief, “If this data is so important, then how does your records management system deliver the information back to you during an incident?”

In response, Chief Bird simply pointed to a large paper binder sitting on his desk, and FlowMSP was born.


We exist to get critical information into the hands of firefighters.

“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.”
