VVSG Conference Mechelen, Belgium

On vvsgNovember 21st The Association of Flemish Cities and Municipalities (VVSG) organized a conference in Mechelen, Belgium.

Since Januari 1st, 2015 the municipal fire services in Belgium are centralized and merged into interlocal organizations, called hulpverleningszones (emergency zones). This means that the fire service must evolve from 165 municipal forces to 20 emergency zones. The VVSG emergency zones department therefore organized a conference with a focus on the policy and management structure of the zones.

Bart van Leeuwen gave a presentation on this conference on behalf of Netage. The presentation was about the use of Big Data in the fire service. Bart used his personal story and experience with data to advice the emergency zones about how to use the data smart for both repressive and preventive purposes. The presentation was very well received and found inspiring.

Workshop Eden Prairie Minneapolis

ep_fire_logoAfgelopen weken heeft Netage een grote verkenningsreis gemaakt door de VS. Er is marktonderzoek gedaan en er zijn brandweerkorpsen door de hele Verenigde Staten bezocht om onze producten te presenteren.

In Eden Prairie Minneapolis heeft Bart van Leeuwen namens Netage een workshop gegeven aan ‘Fire Chiefs’ en IT verantwoordelijken van brandweer korpsen in Minneapolis en omgeving. Een groep van ongeveer 20 mensen heeft met grote interesse naar het verhaal van Bart geluisterd. Bart heeft uitgelegd wat termen als ‘Big Data’ en ‘Smart Data’ precies betekenen en welke gevolgen dit allemaal voor de brandweer kan hebben. De uitleg van Bart was een uitgangspunt voor goede discussies en het inzichtelijk maken van de problemen op het gebied van data verwerking bij de brandweer. Tijdens de ‘coffeebreaks’ werd duidelijk dat het heldere verhaal van Bart zeer werd gewaardeerd en werden de mogelijkheden tot samenwerken al doorgesproken.

Tot slot heeft Bart ook nog een uitgebreide demo van de RESC.Info producten van Netage gegeven waar veel positieve reacties op kwamen.

In the process of modeling the Graph Data we will make use of the previously developed models from other fire service applications.Read More
