Prometheus’ Shield - Wildland Fire Incident Management System
Track: Wildland Fire Management
Authors: Bill King, Andrew King
Prometheus’ Shield provides the first real-time firefighter tracking and incident analysis program available. GIS mapping allows Incident Command to visualize the scene and make informed decisions on suppression tactics. We will demonstrate live how the system operates and use spatial analysis to determine proximity to danger zones. Incident Command staff can now make safer fire management plans, greatly increasing firefighter safety.
