Fire shelter: there’s an app for that

We received the following information from David Caraway, Founder & CEO of

We would like to announce that we have created a free iPhone app for the New Generation Fire Shelter. It integrates several documents and videos on both the fire shelter, and entrapment avoidance. This app will remain a free app. The iRPG [Incident Response Pocket Guide] iPhone app has been downloaded 3,000 times, and we hope that this app is able to find its way into the hands of as many firefighters.

As always, we welcome any feedback we can receive from the firefighter community on how to make the app better.

We don’t have an iPhone, but have gone Android instead. Would anyone like to submit a review of the app? There is only one review of it in the app store.

  1. I don’t have an iphone either- since I can’t download the app, does that mean I’m a goner if I’m caught in a burnover?!
