Manchester, United Kingdom, December 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Today marks the launch of a new website featuring leading edge technology for fire and rescue personnel. Chirange Technologies Limited (CTL), based in Manchester, UK, announces the launch of a new website designed to best display the new Chirange Commander, as well as a variety of upcoming technology focused towards the emergency services. The newest product to be launched is the Chirange Incident Commander, an Android tablet cloud based application which has been specifically designed from the ground up for Fire & Rescue and Police tactical units.
The Chirange application for Android provides real-time GPS tracking of fire and police personnel, allows incident commanders to view the big picture yet allows other commanders involved with the incident to view and share information. Additionally, commanders and headquarters can view any number of live incidents and view exactly what the situation is on the ground, all in real time. Everything from location of fire appliances to coordinates of each specific incident team member is logged and a full audit trail is recorded of every movement and action for debriefing or later analysis.
“The Chirange Incident Commander application for the Android tablet has been designed specifically to help protect firefighters in the field and to allow incident commanders better control over emergency situations, enabling them to make better decisions,” remarks Paul Birchall, CEO of Chirange Technologies. “The ability to work with fire and rescue services throughout the development of the application has offered Chirange the opportunity to implement the exact requirements of fire commanders, building a solid application that molds itself to work with their existing practises and procedures.”
Lancashire Fire Department
Fire & Rescue services in both the UK and US have been involved in the design and development input to the Chirange Incident Commander tablet application. Chirange is currently being trialled in the UK by Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service in the North West of England and gaining serious interest from other UK as well as US Fire departments, several US police SWAT teams also set to start trialling Chirange. Lancashire Station Manager Ian Potter remarks,"We've been working with Chirange to develop this product, which could contribute effectively to the way an incident is managed in future."
Upcoming Fire and Rescue Products
Chirange is integrating the very latest geospatial tracking technology due to be launched in 2012, allowing firefighters to be accurately tracked in real time, inside buildings. Working with a US technology partner, CTL will be amongst the first in the UK to provide this leading technology to fire and rescue services, and specialist police units.
