Use First Look Pro to Organize and Locate Critical Pre-Plans
You have been creating and collecting site diagrams, photographs, building information, and strategy notes for your pre-incident plans. What is the best way to organize all that information? More importantly, when a call comes in, how do you find that pre-plan when you need the information? You should never enter a building without reviewing the critical information you need to stay safe.
First Look Pro™, an innovative software program from The CAD Zone, Inc. (Beaverton, OR), is designed to help you create and organize your pre-incident plans. You use First Look Pro as a receptacle for all the available information about a site, including floor plan and site diagrams, photographs, hydrant locations, building access points, building construction details, the location of FDCs and utility shut-offs, contact information, strategy notes, and more. The First Look Pro graphical interface is very easy to use. You just enter the information on the simple forms and specify which diagrams and photographs to attach to each pre-plan. First Look Pro creates a powerful SQL database of pre-plans for you, even if you don’t know anything about database software.
Take Your Pre-plans Mobile
Once your pre-plans are in First Look Pro, you simply enter an address (or just a unique part of an address) to find that pre-plan and display it. First Look Pro is ideal for use on mobile computers in fire department apparatus. It completely replaces the three-ring binders of pre-plans that many fire departments still carry on their trucks. Within seconds of getting into the truck, you can have the pre-plan on the screen in First Look Pro where you can review diagrams, photographs, and all the critical information needed by the Incident Commander.
First Look Pro was designed with the help of fire fighters and has been used for years in fire service vehicles around the world. The forms all have large buttons that are ideal for use on a touch-screen computer, even when bouncing along a rough road. All your critical information is stored on the computer in the truck, so you are not dependent on an internet or wide-area network connection. If you are in an area where you do not have a network connection, you will still have access to all of your pre-plans.
First Look Pro is affordable, starting at $399 per copy, with discounts available for multiple copies. Call The CAD Zone at 800-641-9077 for more information.
