Emergency Reporting (ER), a company that provides cloud-based fire and EMS records management, has released a free e-book titled “Ten Useful Apps for First Responders.” The e-book, available for download on the ER website, features an app on each page, including a summary, screenshots, a list of useful tools and best features, current price, and links to access each app in the App Store or Google Play.
“Cell phones and tablets can be extremely useful tools for first responders, especially if they have an arsenal of good apps at their disposal,” said Stewart Smith, Product Manager at Emergency Reporting. “While there are many fire and EMS-related apps out there to choose from, even with reviews it can be hard to tell which ones are actually worth downloading. So, we decided to put together a handy list of some of our favorites—tried and true apps that we think first responders will find helpful and save them time.”
The featured apps offer a variety of resources, from a database of information on hazardous substances to a calculation tool for figuring out discharge pressure for firefighting pumps. Prices of the apps range from free to $10/month.
