New app provides emergency response vehicles with faster, safer paths to incident scenes


A new GPS system is in development to help first responders get to incident scenes safer and faster.

According to ECN Magazine, the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate partnered with Azimuth1 to develop a GPS system called QuickRoute that takes into account specific factors that can delay response times.

QuickRoute features an alert system to warn first responders of hazards along routes. It also leverages additional data streams the public doesn’t have access to that will allow greater flexibility in timely situations.
