Firefighter accountability app
Would like to hear your opinions on this app. We're a long way from inside GPS accountability systems that work. We all have smart phones (Well almost all). This is a tool that can save a life when we're working alone.
Developed by NYC Firefighters. Mandown app (www.mandownapp.com) provides and affordable, reliable way to monitor Firefighters in trouble. Once activated, the app constantly monitors for movement. When it senses ‘no movement’ the clock starts ticking. (Like a PASS device)
After 30 seconds an audible pre-alarm sounds. Movement will cancel the alarm sequence. After 60 seconds of no-movement, the app goes into Full Alarm. A voice message, text message and email will be sent out to the chosen recipients. A map showing location will be emailed and the location will be included in the text message.
The app can be seen at www.mandownapp.com. Please post/send your comments and ideas.
