    Default pre planning software

    Hello all, I was wondering who uses what kind of software or templates to create pre plans? Can some people please email me a copy of what they are using or attach the file to the post?



    Thanks,
    Todd

    My FD uses preplan software that I developed. In addition to just storing information, it allows you to attach digital images to it and draw diagrams in it.

    I'll email you more information later in the day if you want, don't have much time right now.

    The CROSSFIRE management software offers a pre-plan module that allows you to view crucial data about ANY building in your response area. This includes the following:

    *Square footage
    *Water supply
    *Occupancy shifts
    *Known construction hazards (i.e. bowstring truss roof)
    *Bulk tank & haz-mat storage:

    *Type
    *Quantity
    *Location
    *Tank material
    *Chemical properties (flash boil point, etc.)
    *Suggested actions per DOT guidebook & NFPA 704 standard

    PLUS, you can even view pictures of buildings in your district!!

    CROSSFIRE is an entirely Windows based program offering integrated mouse support, animated buttons & graphics AND help screens for virtually all functions. Best of all, you need minimal computer knowledge to operate it!!

    For more info, go to www.fire-rescueoutfitters.com & click the Computer Software link. A FREE, no obligation demo trial CD is available for depts. that are seriously interested in the CROSSFIRe system.

    Hope this info helps you out. Stay Safe.

    Thumbs up I use.....

    I use the CadZone software, otherwise known as "Firezone" for my preplan drawings. It is a cad-based software program that comes with a few templates for layouts and information that you can use. You can also modify it quite a bit. Once you learn your most used functions, it is a breeze to use, and includes a feature called "easy lines" which makes the drawings easy to make. There are tons of symbols already built into the program, too.

    Hope it helps, and I will try posting the link to their webpage here:

    We use Microsoft Paint (waste of time) and Visio2000. Visio comes with several templates as well as pics to help with diagrams.

    Cool

    I have been using Firezone for the last 2 to 3 years to do all of our drawings, it works very well. We just the other day got a up grade of Firezone and the chief wants me to see if it would be anybetter, I will let you know if it is.
