On May 11, 2018, at the Warsaw Torwar, the Final Gala of the FLORIANY Competition took place, during which the winners of 2nd edition of the National Competition for Best Initiatives for Local Communities with the participation of Voluntary Fire Service and local authorities were announced.
We are pleased to inform that in the Innovation and Digital Innovation category, the Search and Rescue Group of Voluntary Fire Service in Wołczków won for the project of the innovative application of the Action Centre, created within the Samsung Labo program, by Eng. Kamil Maliński, a student of the Faculty of Electircal Engineering and the first beneficiary of the faculty program supporting entrepreneurship of students and graduates of Start-Up_WE.
Application created by Mr. Kamil improves briefing phase of search teams, allows to control their working time, allows to enter and update information on a missing person and to keep track of the progress of his search.
- Furthermore, the application cares about safety because it can remind us that, for example, we have not been in contact with our rescuer for too long. We have full information: who is in what sector, what he/she is doing at a certain time, should we make contact with him/her ... Certainly the search is carried out faster, safer and more efficiently - Joanna Szumer, coordinator of the search and rescue group, said in an interview for Radio Szczecin.
