Fire Dept. goes Tablet


The fire department in Danville, Illinois has received seven Panasonic Toughbook Tablet PCs  to allow quicker access to important information at the scene of disasters. Firefighters can get information on hazardous materials to make rapid decisions affecting how a fire is attacked.  The Tablets are augmented by mobile printers that make it possible to print building floorplans at the scene of fires.   This is a cool use of mobile technology and I am certain we will see more of this in the future.
