First Responder Support Tools


FiRST provides police, firefighters, security, and emergency management personnel easy access to map-based improvised explosive device (IED) standoff distances and hazmat spill evacuation areas. The IED standoff data is based on criteria set by the DHS Office for Bombing Prevention and FEMA 426, Reference Manual to Mitigate Potential Terrorist Attacks Against Buildings. Users can also define custom IED types and standoff. Hazmat evacuation and reference data is based on the 2012 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG). Important: Access to DHS IED standoff data requires a statement of need by those not registering with a .mil, .gov, or .us email address accounts.

Features of the software include:

- Display IED Mandatory Evacuation and Shelter-in-Place Zones for 8 pre-defined bomb sizes and user defined custom IED types

- Display Isolation Zones and down-wind Protection Zones for over 3,000 chemicals

- Display distance to glass breakage, injury, and structural damage based on bomb size

- Information displayed on Google Maps, with similar functionality to zoom, search by address, current location, and map/satellite/hybrid views

- Automatically retrieve current weather from Weatherbug (www.weather.weatherbug.com) or forecast weather from the National Weather Service (US only) or Meteorologisk Institutt (Worldwide); weather can also be user input or input using the phone’s compass functionality

- Results shown geographically as well as text based

- Search and display predefined points of interest (schools, nurseries, hospitals, police/fire stations, and government facilities) from Google Search services to identify key facilities within the incident area

- Run roadblock analysis service that identifies within seconds the optimal location of roadblocks to isolate the incident area

- Place and label points on the map to identify key locations

- One-button summary of results (text, map image, map data shape and kml file attachments) in an email to disseminate to other responding personnel

- Includes reference material from the 2012 ERG and important chemical contacts for quick calling

- Store map images (including legends) for reference when connectivity prevents access to network maps

Very limited, guess I'm a suckerrefers to free 2012 erg for data but does not post protective area or allow input. No measurement tools. Buyer beware - thought $12 would mean a professional app...not reading gps on galaxy s3 Very limited, refers to free 2012 erg for data but does not post protective area or allow input for many hazards. No measurement tools. Buyer beware - thought $12 would mean a professional app...not reading gps on galaxy s3. Better off with google earth and the erg book. Not user friendly. Should have known better with homeland security funding.
