Wildfire - Urban
Nowadays, monitoring weather conditions and obtaining reliable and accurate data has become crucial to carry on diverse activities. Firefighters need accurate information to choose the right tactics and equipment to battle an ongoing burn. This data is just as important to assure people safeness and successful firefighting operations. Wind speed and direction, among other environmental factors, need to be measured and tracked at real time in order to anticipate the fire behavior and make crucial decisions.
The Ultrasonic Portable wind meter from Calypso Instruments provides a self-powered handheld solution for fightfiter units who want to measure wind on-site. Our wind sensor gives accurate and reliable data of the real and apparent wind speed and direction allowing the user to connect it to any mobile device via bluetooth to different apps. Thanks to its small size and lightweight, our portable anemometer can be used as a handheld or stand-alone wind meter.

Optimize the resources to extinguish a fire successfully.
WILDFIRE - WILDLAND FIREFIGHTING
Wind is one of the most dangerous problems that a firefighter can face, as it can make fire to get out of control. High winds make it very difficult to control and anticipate the behavior of the fire; in those cases, having real time wind information can be live saving-data.
Measuring inmediate weather conditions is crucial to ensure a safe environment and to fight wildfires. Our handheld anemometer provides reliable information about the wind speed and direction on-site in order to understand how the fire is evolvig and how to keep it controlled.
Urban fires need previous control of the situation, before deploying the equipment and distributing firefighters, in order to optimize resources and successfully extinguish the fire. Monitoring wind speed and direction on-site and at real time is crucial to control the operation and predict the behav ior of the fire.
“IT IS A GREAT DEVICE, IT IS AMAZING THE FACT THAT THE DATA CAN BE TRACKED AND ANALYZED LATER”
