Why FirstToSee is important
Disasters often impact an entire region. This means even well-prepared agencies can face difficult choices over how to respond. Is there a better way for responders and partners to work together more effectively? The project team who created FirstToSee thought so. Taking advantage of the latest technologies, they created a revolutionary support system. FirstToSee makes it easy to leverage the full potential of mobile app reports and social media for emergency response.
Share what's happening at the scene
The free app gives responders and trusted volunteers a new way to share reports, photos and videos from the field. It only takes a few seconds to send a report from an Apple, Android, or Windows phone. All reports are automatically sent to the support system where they can be viewed by emergency managers. Use the app to share what's happening in real time.
