Pre-Planning Software (eFirstView®)

How functional and dependable is your Fire Department’s pre-planning capabilities?  Do you still rely on paper records, such as binders full of information that likely is outdated?  Perhaps a cumbersome and time consuming Records Management System (RMS) occupancy module, where finding the information needed simply takes far too long?  Or do you simply use a PDF document stored in CAD, which most often lacks a significant amount of critical fire ground details you may need, WHEN that information is needed most?

Most Fire Departments invest in improving their pre-planning capabilities because they recognize the critical benefits of having a functional, usable pre planning program in the field.

Fire department preplanning technologyWe’re proud to introduce you to eFirstView®, a unique and innovative pre-planning solution designed from the ground up using extensive feedback from first responders, just like you!
