Five fire departments have placed orders for Mapping Solutions' new FIREbasePIP, a new emergency response software system designed to assist fire, police, EMS and homeland security agencies bring people to safety faster and more efficiently.

Mapping Solutions Inc., a provider of software and services for the public safety and telecommunications industries, and GiveMePower Corporation, a provider of graphics software for mobile, wireless and desktop solution development, announced that five fire departments across the country have placed orders for Mapping Solutions' new FIREbasePIP emergency response software.

FIREbasePIP, developed jointly by Mapping Solutions and GiveMePower, is a new emergency response software system designed to assist fire, police, EMS and homeland security agencies bring people to safety faster and more efficiently. Installed across an agency's central computing network and on mobile, in-vehicle-mounted computers, FIREbasePIP allows rescue agencies to create pre-incident plans, and to give emergency response workers instant access to evacuation routes and maps while on-route, helping save lives and property, and to dispel hazardous situations.

"We have equipped all of our emergency vehicles with FIREbase-equipped laptops so when dispatch calls, teams can punch up the location and instantly view the maps," said Terry Scholl, Deputy Chief of the Creve Coeur Fire District in St. Louis County. Scholl explains, "One of the most important aspects is that we can add more and more to the maps all the time, and to instantly access information in the field, where we need it most."

Agencies placing orders for FIREbasePIP include the City of Nashville Fire Department, the City of Chehalis Fire Department, Lewis Country Fire District, Elyria Fire Department and the City of East Nash Volunteer Fire Department.

At $495, FIREbasePIP is part of Mapping Solution's complete line of FIREbase emergency planning and response solutions, based on GiveMePower's PowerCAD graphics development software system.
