STREATOR, Ill., July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- FlowMSP, the leading Pre-planning Platform Solution for Fire Departments, released its comprehensive, interdepartmental data sharing application called "Mutual Aid Data Sharing."  The announcement signifies FlowMSP's commitment to enabling fire departments to easily gather and share critical pre-planning data, which keeps firefighters safe, and helps the communities they serve be more cost effective.

FlowMSP speeds up the pre-planning process enabling fire departments to efficiently deploy critical information to the right place at the right time, reducing risk and saving money.

4 Steps to Pre-Planning
FlowMSP significantly decreases the time and effort it takes to pre-plan by providing firefighters with a 4 step system for identifying and capturing the data necessary for critical incident command decisions. With FlowMSP, firefighters can pre-plan entire structures in under 6 minutes. Data is pre-populated into the software and personnel use drop down menus to select building and occupancy data, as well as NFPA and other standard symbols for easy identification when response is needed.

Data Sharing Necessary for Mutual Aid During Emergency Response
With MADS, this data can now be shared between communities, which is necessary for mutual aid situations. Mutual pre-planning data capture and sharing by multiple departments lowers the risk to firefighter injury and increases the operational efficiency for responding units outside their service areas.

"By enabling firefighters to easily gather data and then share it with neighboring Fire Departments, FlowMSP is fulfilling its commitment to keeping firefighters and communities safer.  We have customers successfully using FlowMSP capabilities to pre-plan critical structures in under 6 minutes.  Being able to collect and tie together data and imagery in such a fast, comprehensive way, is a game changer for departments who are constantly faced with budget cuts and other constraints," says FlowMSP CEO Jason Marvel.
