Victoria Volunteer FD app coming soon to assist fire fighters

“Its vital for us to get something that’s easier for the volunteers,” Fire Marshal, Richard Castillo said.

Victoria County Fire Marshal Richard Castillo speaks about their new smart phone fire app, called Fire app, made for all county volunteer fire fighters.

“It will have a drop down of the different types of incident they may go to. They’ll be able to put in their run time, what time the alarm came in, what time they responded and the date of the incident,” Castillo said.

The app will help volunteer fire fighters quickly send in reports while in the field and on the scene.

“Having a smart phone app helps us get them out and be a little more efficient in what were doing and doing these report a lot more quicker and efficient,” Castillo said.

The volunteer fire department plans to have the app in March or April.
