Chirange Technologies introduces a new incident command application for Android tablets

Published:  09 December, 2011

Chirange Technologies Limited (CTL), located in Manchester, UK, has launched a mobile app for the rescue industries, Chirange Commander. The latest product offered in the line of Chirange products is the Chirange Incident Commander, an Android app which has been designed from the ground up to aid fire and rescue, police and SWAT units, as well as security professionals. The company has also launched a new website to support the introduction of the new incident command platform.

The Chirange app for Android tablets offers real-time GPS tracking and monitoring of fire and police personnel, as well as allows incident commanders to see the larger picture while allowing other commanders and rescue personel involved to view and share information through the Chirange app. Commanders as well as staff at headquarters can monitor and see all live incidents and asses the situation on the ground, all in real-time through the Cloud-based interface. Everything from the location of fire trucks and rescue equipment to the coordinates of each rescue team member out in the field, is recorded within the system and a fullaudit trail is available of every movement and action for review. 

“We designed and developed the Chirange Incident Commander app for the Android tablet with a main goal of helping to safeguard firefighters in the field. The app allows incident commanders more control over emergencies in the field, allowing them to make better decisions for the safety of their teams,” remarks Paul Birchall, CEO of Chirange Technologies.

Fire and Rescue services from both the United States and the United Kingdom have been involved from the start. “Throughout the development of the application, our work with fire and rescue workers has provided Chirange top of the line in development and testing,” says Birchall.

Chirange is currently being tested in the UK by Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service in north west England and has also gained interest from other UK and US based fire departments.

Chirange is working to assimilate leading edge geospatial tracking technology allowing a firefighter’s location to be tracked in real time, from inside buildings. Working with a US partner technology company, CTL , the application will be amongst the first to offer this technology to the fire rescue, police, SWAT, and security organizations. The Geospatial tracking is set to be launched next year within the Chirange Incident Commander tablet application.
