Station ID: GTR-PSW-027
Description: Dispatching of firefighting resources requires instantaneous or precalculated decisions. A FORTRAN computer program has been developed that can provide a list of resources in order of computed arrival time for initial attack on a fire. The program requires an accurate description of the existing road system and a list of all resources available on a planning unit.
Key Words: fire management, fire suppression programs, computer programs, simulation, travel time
