Quira's Fire Station Directory App Assists Emergency Services and Business Continuity Professionals
Quira's updated UK and Northern Ireland Fire Station Directory for the Apple iPad and iPhone continues to be well received by emergency services personnel, as well as those concerned with emergency planning for businesses.
These useful applications include comprehensive details for well over 2,000 fire stations from all 62 fire and rescue services within the UK and Northern Ireland, including accurate street and satellite mapping, directions and journey time planning (from the user's current location) and useful indexes both by town and individual fire service. Previous versions have been very well received by emergency services workers, who have a need to locate fire premises throughout the UK, as well as business continuity planners, seeking to understand the location of nearby fire stations from which estimated emergency response times can be understood.
Commenting on the new version, Quira's Steve Moore commented "The UK and Northern Ireland Fire Station Directory is one of our most downloaded applications, and we continue to receive positive feedback from professionals who rely upon its mapping functionality in their daily tasks. With a number of fire and rescue services recently consolidating fire station locations in order to improve cover and reduce costs, it is important that we continue to provide regular updates for this frequently changing scene".
Moore continues: "We have been especially pleased to see that these applications are a valuable source of data to business continuity and disaster recovery planners, who now have ready access to fire station location data, and can therefore plan for likely emergency response times within their organisational plans".
