FlowMSP is an industry-leading pre-incident planning software platform for the fire service. Our goal is, and always will be, to innovate new ways for the fire service to collect, and use, critical building and response information.
Information Fire Deparments Need.
At the Speed They Need It.
On a hot July day in Illinois, FlowMSP co-founder Jason Marvel spent the afternoon with Chief Gary Bird of the Streator Fire Department. One of the Chief’s duties is to pre-plan strategic community assets and on that day Chief Bird had set aside 2 hours to pre-plan the Public Library.
During the pre-planning process, Chief Bird used a measuring wheel to determine an approximate square footage for the structure and to determine the distance to the three nearest hydrants. The Chief finished his information gathering with a few digital photos and some notes in a notebook.
After finishing the manual data gathering process, Chief Bird and Jason arrived back in his office where Chief Bird transcribed the pre-planning information he had just gathered into his Records Management System.
Having watched this tedious process, Jason’s question to Chief was:
“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.
FlowMSP was born.
