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.

Austin Peay State University
