he objective of this project is to create such a system that can help in strengthening response time of fire brigade and other recue/support units during emergencies cases by utilizing the latest technologies. The technologies we intended to embrace are GPS, IOT based fire sensors, GIS database, auto route identifier. We have fire brigade units in place along with two dedicated emergency call numbers. Also, we have established municipal data center we can utilize as data storage as well as processing unit for Computer Aided Dispatch. It works: Central Response Unit gets information regarding incidents via one of the below ways. 1.     Direct call 2.     Smart phone App. 3.      IoT based fire sensor. Central Response unit will verify that incident report via various means and then inform rescue/support units in-order to dispatch emergency units to the incident location.
