XCapture FIRE

Currently under development, XCapture FIRE is a web-based authoring tool that helps firefighters quickly and easily gather and organize event information, conduct AARs, prepare reports, and share knowledge with other firefighters. Firefighters will use the tool’s guided interview to quickly develop post-incident reports for formal and informal experience sharing. The reports will be made available to the fire community via a forum which will let users locate incidents of interest. Shared experiences will also be used in AlphaACT FIRE, as part of the experience database used in crisis decision training.

With the initial release of XCapture FIRE, you will be able to:

  • Create, edit, and review a variety of standard post-incident reports, including AAR reports and event summaries
  • Share your reports with others in the fire community
  • Search and view the reports shared by others

  • Using a structured interview, the system will help you document:

  • Background information about the event and the resources available to deal with it
  • Information about the event and the event scene
  • A post-incident review, including lessons learned

  • Future features will let you:

  • Gather field information, including notes, audio, photographs, video, and maps using convenient apps on your mobile devices
  • Facilitate a team AAR process
  • Easily export formatted incident information to lessons learned and other external databases
  • Join the Conversation
