the perimeter platform

A single, integrated source for information sharing


“200 years of tradition unimpeded by progress.” It’s a common saying in the fire service, and not without reason — when you’re on the frontlines of a fire, dependable tools like radios and paper maps will usually beat out new technologies that could crash when you need them most. But, as natural disasters have set records year after year, the need for new solutions to public safety has become more and more pressing. Perimeter is here to fill that need by providing the information you need, when and where you need it.

Information sharing for public safety

Perimeter is designed for the specific needs of first responders, and our tool is built with the public safety information flow (and permissioning) in mind. We aim to enable effective data integration, collaboration, and visualization by integrating with existing department workflows and data systems. 

All of our features have been designed in conversation with first responders, and are optimized for low-connectivity and offline use cases to make sure our platform can be used for all types of incidents. 

Using our platform, first responders can easily see multiple relevant data sources while also communicating in real-time through a simple mobile interface. Users can mark incident locations on a shared map, and can then add incident notes and additional information to help coordinate response efforts across team members. Agencies can collaborate with each other by sharing selected information across teams, and our location-tracking features help decision makers keep track of personnel and resources across an incident.

OFFLINE AND LOW-CONNECTIVITY ACCESS

There’s a reason we’re still using paper maps

Connectivity continues to be a major concern for first responders — due to infrastructure damage during an incident, or a lack of infrastructure to begin with. Our platform was built for these environments. 

The Perimeter platform saves mapping data locally to your device for offline use, to make sure that first responders can access valuable information at all times. By processing large data layers into a lightweight, compressed format, we allow users to share information in low-connectivity situations. 

Our platform is also built to integrate with other offline solutions, like mesh networks or satellite communications, to make sure that agencies can make the most of the other tools already at their disposal.

New tools for first responders

  • Collaborative data sharing
  • Personnel management
  • Intuitive workflow

Collaborative data sharing

First responders can input, share and publish relevant incident data, which is then disseminated to other first responders and citizens. This allows them to immediately view new incident updates and contribute additional details. 

Personnel management

The platform allows decision makers to designate proper authorization, as well as dynamically assign groups and roles to first responders. Decision makers can also track the locations of resources, equipment, or other first responders in real time. 

Intuitive workflow

Perimeter is accessible on mobile devices, and uses a simple interface that requires minimal training. This means no specialized expertise is required to get the most out of our platform.
