We wanted to solve the problem that firefighters are having when there's a fire. This app gives firefighter the ability to go to a fire and find the nearest available fire hydrants.
How it works
Gulu will increase efficiency for firefighters.
- Firefighters signup using their badge ID to maintain security
- Create a fire by typing in the address of the fire.
- gulu tells you how many fire trucks are at the fire in real time.
- gulu then shows you the closest fire hydrates
- Pick a fire hydrate to get directions
- gulu makes sure one truck goes to one fire hydrate at a time.
How we built it
ionic, available for both IOS and Android
Challenges we ran into
We were having problem integrating the Cordova launcher initially and loading markers on the map. But we eventually figure it out.
What we learned
Learning how to integrate Cordova for navigation, Google Maps API in for TypeScript.
What's next for Gulu - Automating firefighters efficiency
We want to build the product and sell it to fire stations. As well go into law enforcement.
