ARA Releases Windows PC Version of First Responder Support Tools (FiRST)

April 2012

ARA has released a Windows PC version of the popular First Responder Support Tools (FiRST). Since FiRST and sister application Hazmat Evac were released for smartphones (iOS and Android) the past year, more than 2,000 applications have been sold.

FiRST provides first-responders, emergency managers and associated officials easy access to map-based improvised explosive device (IED) standoff distances and HAZMAT spill evacuation areas using current winds. The Windows PC version is the third platform for the software.

Direct your questions or comments about FiRST to Program Manager Dr. Carl Jerrett at (919) 582-3300 or email
