IAFC: International Association of Fire Chiefs conducting survey on how mobile devices are changing the way the fire service works

 The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) is conducting a survey on how 
mobile devices are changing the way the fire service works.

 This is the IAFC’s third 
annual survey on this topic. Responses are accepted through June 28, and all 
responses are confidential. 

In 2011, IAFC found 84 percent of the respondents used a smartphone for jobrelated tasks, mostly email and texting. Firefighters also used smartphones for GIS 
mapping and routing as well as job-related information searching.

Are Mobile Devices Changing How You Work?

June 6, 2013
The use of mobile devices and tablets has grown in the past few years. Please take a few moments to participate in the IAFC's 3rd annual smartphone and tablet survey to help us measure the use of mobile devices in the fire and emergency service.
The results will also help the IAFC develop new applications to deliver information, training, resources and solutions that meet the needs of first responders.
The questions are short and the survey should take less than five minutes to complete. Your individual responses will be kept confidential. 

Survey responses will be accepted through June 28, 2013.
