In firefighting, the safety of your crew is vital. That's why top operators are utilising advanced tracking and communication solutions to bring their crews back home safe.
When flying into remote areas it's extremely challenging for operators to stay informed and connected — from cockpit, to office, to operations center.
On top of this, firefighters must meet NAFC Standard requirements on tracking, event data collection and reporting.
In this 30-minute webinar, Trevor and Richard will explore the role technology can play in aerial firefighting.
You will get answers on:
- How technology can be leveraged to overcome communication barriers and better serve responders and their safety.
- How technology can enhance situational awareness and augment collaboration during an emergency for more effective responses.
- How critical information can be made accessible — in real-time — across multiple agencies to improve outcomes.
These are just some of the important questions that we will answer in this webinar, including, how operators can better prepare and equip themselves for this fire season while also meeting NAFC standard requirements.
