I’m a huge fan of anything useful to the fire service that is provided free of charge. Well, I found another extrication app for smartphones and the iPad. It’s called the Hybrid Auto Extrication Guide by Field Applications, LLC. The guide is available on iPhone, Android and iPad. I downloaded the guide onto my droid and I must say I’m really impressed!
Field Applications, LLC is a group effort located in Redwood City, California. Their products are designed by firefighters and paramedics, graphic designers and software engineers. Cal Blake is the founder who works as a first responder in California.
Below is a quote from their website Extricationguide.com that sums up the character of the people behind their product:
Cost is always a factor in operations, especially for academies and cadets, small departments, and volunteer services. That’s why the Hybrid Auto Extrication Guide is available for free in the App Store. We want it to be available to everyone.
