Useful Apps
#1
A thread for any apps that will assist us on the job.

I was shown one today that will be handy for fire, it's a hazmat app and free on both IOS and Android. It's called WISER. It rather handily ties in with the DOT book. Covers everything: properties, actions to take, PPE needed, decontam and much more. Select the hazmat specialist at the start to get the most information and use off it. While still using the books to fall back on it could come in handy.

Ones I like (IOS):

ERG 2012 - DOT book
UN number
Hazmat Evac - DOT book with mapping and realtime weather
Diamond EAC
CMC Rescue - rope/line guide
Fire Pump - works in metric
Rangefinder - uses camera, works well
Viewranger - OS maps
Met Eireann
Accuweather - longer range speculation

Complain politely to the RSO? He then might release funding for a car charger.

Hazmat Load (for DOT segregation)
ERG 2012 - DOT book
Driver check (for taxis)
Spanset Controller (calculates amount of straps needed to secure a load taking into account friction and weight as per EN 12195)
PHECC fieldguide app
Accu Weather (for long-range)
Met eireann (for short range)
Tidesplanner (free app that will tell you high/low tides etc)
Surf report (Oakley version)
Daylight (handy for knowing sunset and sunrise times)

Find Glympse very handy. You can send someone a track of your phone for a preset amount of time. Handy if you're expecting someone so you don't have to ring where they are or if you need to direct, or be directed somewhere.

Changes to the old field guide and a quicker way of updating if CPG's, meds or other issues change and not a complete reprint then

Our Corporate Services Dept suffered a glitch.... The much vaunted new contract moving from Vodaphone to 3, fell through after two weeks. Thus my iPhone has still not arrived, I soldier on with my trusty Nokia.

Apps?? What are they?
