Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) April 02, 2014

On April 10, 2014, fire and hazmat software developer ADASHI Systems will reveal a Google Glass prototype at FDIC, the largest firefighter conference in the world. Used in conjunction with the ADASHI first response and incident command software, firefighters wearing the Glass can view critical data such as building plans, aerial imagery, and electronic huddle diagramming.

“ADASHI is focused on cutting-edge technology to support public safety,” said Alex Menkes, CEO. “Our software, already in wide use across the country, provides situational awareness and command and control tools to the people who save our lives every day. Google Glass is a natural fit for the industry, and when the price drops to say, $300 a pair, I think we’ll see more of these in service.”

ADASHI Systems emergency software provides responders with a fast, accurate picture of the scene including maps, preplans, aerial dispersion modeling, guidance and video. Xerox Corporation (XRX) distributes the ADASHI First Response software under its Firehouse brand name, FH Mobile Response.

Users of ADASHI software include the Los Angeles City Fire Department, (the 3rd biggest fire department in the United States), New South Wales Fire & Rescue, (one of the five largest fire rescue services in the world with over 70,000 volunteers), US Marines, and hundreds of other fire departments, hazmat teams and emergency operation centers across the U.S.

About ADASHI Systems:
ADASHI First Response and Command Post software are used in fire trucks as a lightweight way to carry all the relevant intel while coordinating response to natural disasters, hazmat technical response, complex fires, terrorist threats, and more. The robust program allows commanders to seamlessly evolve strategy.

Using ADASHI/Xerox’s FH Mobile Response means there’s no need for responding units to request or search online for information – relevant data appears automatically in the program. Incident Commanders can move resources onto the map with a fingertip and use the electronic Incident Action Plan to coordinate their teams, communicate tactics, and share info with outside agencies. It is an essential tool particularly when dealing with large incidents requiring multiple resources – helicopters, ambulances, fire trucks and ladders.

ADASHI integrates with computer-aided dispatch and 911 systems to make critical response smarter, faster and safer. The program works with laptops as well as Microsoft-compatible tablets such as the Surface.

The ADASHI program works when the internet fails. It delivers information during the 3-minute ride en route to the scene, and during incident command.
