How our app solves the challenge?
Possibility to report a fire in your area or nearby , with just asimple double-tap ( Ability to include pictures/videos)
Immediately report to local firefighting station and nearby citizens along with the location ( to confirm the fire or report it as false) .
A specific number of people have to confirm the fire, reducing false alarm rates. This number is dependent on several factors like ( location fire history , atmospheric conditions, location type , current season, is accompanied by pictures/videos or not .)
After confirmation , a second alarm is sent to the firefighting station ( confirming or not the fire ) . They can use this confirmation time( estimated about 2-3 minutes ) for full preparation.
IN ISOLATED AREAS WHERE NO PEOPLE ARE PRESENT , NASA's Opennex APIs can be used. Maximum detection time will be 15 minutes (time satellite images update ) , average detection time 5 minutes .
MAKE ESTIMATIONS BASED ON FIRE LOCATION AND WEATHER CONDITIONS about number of resources needed to put out the fire .
