Austin Peay State University’s GIS Center uses Google IoT grant to assist Volunteer Firefighters

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – For volunteer fire departments, the risks that come with the job can often be different than those of full-time firefighting units in major cities. In many small, rural communities, volunteer firefighters battle the same blazes as their full-time counterparts, often meet at the scene rather than all coming together from a central fire station.

Because of the independent nature of volunteer units, it can be difficult for unit commanders to identify who is available to fight the blaze when they arrive on site.

Tennessee Titans Mike Mularkey and Staff looking for their kind of Players

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Mularkey wasted little time in defining the sought-after characteristics of players on his roster. “Smart, tough, physical, coachable and accountable” was how he put it at his opening press conference in January, and the sentiment was echoed in the subsequent months by Robinson.

The winnowing process began with the offseason program from April through June. It continues when players report following a six-week break, and then there are only two weeks from the initial training camp practice to August 13th, when the Titans host the San Diego Chargers in the first of four preseason games.
