SAN RAMON, Calif. — A new Apple iPhone application will put users in touch with the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District, and has given some college students a taste of what it's like to work in the real world.
Students at Northern Kentucky University developed the app, which will be available this summer. It will allow users to view active incidents and the response status of emergency vehicles dispatched to a call, and will even have an interactive map pinpointing the incidents.
