DIGITAL SIGNAGE

IS THE FUTURE OF FIREFIGHTER TRAINING AND INFORMATION SHARING

"We went from one as a trial and liked it so much that we have installed FRTV in all our Firehouses and at Headquarters. The segments are informative and interesting and bring the Nation’s fire service to our day rooms. The crews like the training on demand as well as the weather on the message boards."

FIRERESCUETV DIGITAL SIGNAGE SOLUTION HELPS FIREFIGHTERS SAVE LIVES

Digital signage isn't just for advertisements; it can also supply lifesaving information. One example of this is the FireRescueTV platform, designed specifically for firefighters. Martin Grube, executive producer of FireRescueTV, created the platform to help firefighters train, get information on fires in progress and relax with entertaining content.

Digital Signage Today spoke with Grube to learn more about this platform.

Q. What kind of content does FireRescueTV offer?

A. I was a firefighter for over 35 years. My vision was to provide on-duty firefighters an easy-to-access library of training videos and provide a 24-hour loop of entertaining content catering to firefighters. Content such as fire house cooking, fire history, new firefighting equipment and new fire apparatus are just a few videos broadcast on the FRTV screen. Training videos created by firefighters out in the field are also added to the library along with FEMA, and other government first responder videos buried on the web are now easily accessed on the FRTV system.

Q. What is the primary benefit for fire stations?

A. There is a tremendous amount of information that is relayed to fire stations daily through emails, phone calls and paperwork. However, fire officers must log in, read each email, print and then post or verbally tell members of pertinent news. This information is fluid and constantly changing, and because firefighters work 24 hours a day, this information must be updated quickly. FireRescueTV allows the fire officers to send messages to one or all their fire stations in seconds. The data is updated on the screen and the information and meeting reminders rotate every 90 seconds.

Firefighters are required to perform a mandatory one-hour daily drill while on duty. Training never ends in the fire station, and many times, the shift begins with a morning muster and quick drill or safety talk over coffee. FRTV offers a complete library of over 300 content-based video drills on demand. Topics such as safety, EMT, HazMat are some of the categories. They simply use the provided touchpad (mouse) to access these drills that are streamed from the FRTV server. These drills are changed often to keep the content fresh.

Fire Rescue TV is by far the greatest invention in the training for fire fighters today. Their daily videos bring all firefighters together to not only learn but to be together. The training videos are top notch and very interesting. The message board feature really makes communication in a volunteer department easy, by being able to text, email, and post a message from any where with phone service. 5 stars and two thumbs up is an understatement!!!!
