STATION 265 RECEIVES TOUGHBOOK-30 AND On-Scene Xplorer 2.6 MAPPING SOFTWARE.
265 Truck is now outfitted with the Panasonic Toughbook CF-30 with GPS and On-Scene Xplorer 2.6, the latest in mapping software from Iron Compass Map Company in Lancaster, Pa. This software will greatly assist us in providing the best possible service to Sharpsburg and our surrounding communities. As it provides critical information on incident locations, incident preplans, building construction and layout, as well as hydrant locations, throughout our response area.
Sharpsburg Fire Department and Donora fire dept. are the only fire companies in Western Pennsylvania to utilize this software from Iron Compass. We would like to thank Evan Miller, and the entire Iron Compass Team for the fantastic job.
We would also like to thank the Borough Of Sharpsburg For purchasing The Panasonic Toughbook CF-30. The On-Scene Xplorer 2.6 Mapping Software, GPS Reciever, Mounting and Installiation was made possible by the 2008 PA State Grant that we recieved.
There are Pictures of the Installiation and finished product on our photo gallery page under "Iron Compass Installiation".
Thanks again to the Borough Of Sharpsburg and Evan Miller and the entire Iron Compass Team. We could not have done this without their cooperation and support.
