The benefits of using web based maps ,online tools and social media with the Incident Command System. Why making free simple Google Maps can increase Situational Awareness and enhance Communications and increase Firefighter and public Safety. This video uses the example of a Wildland Urban Interface fire on a hot ,dry,windy day. It shows how texting,emailing,or posting the map to social media so firefighters being dispatched to the Incident and the public can quickly know where the fire is and areas of evacuation. All will have access to topo maps and aerial views of the entire area. The map can be updated as events dictate. The maps are free and very simple to make but incredibly useful.
