So we want to turn to our weekly war games column now and foxnews.com contributor Allison Barrie joins me.
You can also follow Alison -- Allison underscore -- Think you -- me so what's your agenda because it's about -- we just came through.
We're really not done what they have with the fire fighting would be wildfires raging out of I was just and you -- few weeks ago remember yeah and boy oh boy oh boy it was hazy over this man I can't imagine seeing it firsthand it was in in May -- miles away but still you could see -- on the mountains gorgeous but it.
Certainly has had.
On the firefighters as well as the environment wouldn't we -- latest on -- and a lot of the.
Or is her writing in asking me what's going on with the firefighters is a lot of concern from Fox News viewers about you what's the technology situation you with the escalation -- all these.
Wild fires and droughts -- minutes and -- ravaging.
The United States and across the nation through and so -- took a look at it and I pulled together three that I really like that I think to a lot of promise.
One that's really interesting is you'd GPS is -- really work I'm sure we've all seen as scary movies where.
Woman sort of in a parking garage and she can't get -- happened signal that gang rape.
So -- -- happened to firefighters once they go into a structure.
Payments or commanded the incident commander doesn't know where they aren't the structures they have to rely on through old fashioned -- working teens knowing -- each other is an and a GPS -- -- -- again onto -- fire it doesn't work.
It's it's called a GPS denied sound since that sort of seeing -- like -- going to parking garage you know they're trying to get your maps up for something it exactly leave the parking drives -- -- registry with the -- I help -- locate yourself.
So come one of these things is this -- -- which actually is kind of the GPS for firefighters and -- is taking -- it was an homeland security's science and technology project originally.
And Honeywell has been developing it which I'm really glad about that means we'll get into the hands of those first responders faster you know and get a big company behind it you know than anything and -- -- -- absolutely absolutely you know that her great feedback from the fire -- -- apps -- love this idea.
He's basically with a laptop an incident commander the fire truck can see exactly are up to 500 firefighters and I'm fifty story building so it's.
They quite impressive piece of technology allows and -- track where everyone is.
And -- you know summons for stationary for some time -- alert him to the fact that maybe someone's been injured there's been a problem.
He can -- all the people to come in and help get that guy out as quickly as possible and another technology that's -- that has called fees there and kind of had a sound like it.
I can't make.
At -- -- -- -- that's exactly exactly something like that but more like a tri corder in and start to accept.
On this one released the vital signs of the firefighters -- -- -- -- his location.
You can -- incident commander can turn to this technology and say you know he seems to find his vitals are fine perhaps he's just you know.
Raining outside technology because don't think -- have that the space suits from in years ago where the evidence you know your stuff yet.
So it's about time we had in the hands are firefighters and in their print their lives on the line for us every day -- -- -- just said that -- and it was at Oklahoma I had a terrible please so.
-- that's a perfect example where these structures are very difficult for that the incident commanders and other firefighters know each other are in the police.
On site I love that one as well and the final one is it's haven't read common sense with the home its -- Huntsman got -- -- that yes I'm.
We don't often get very tell references in that the defense business but you know -- finite -- given to -- years.
-- -- that I should decline in his bread crumbs for firefighters say they did that.
On the -- these little break comes -- -- new pieces of technology.
That allowed the again the incident commander kind of amplifies the signal to get it out of the structures so.
New book this Caesar and the -- -- the -- here the need to have the signals amplified to get out there -- -- these kind of little routers and boost the signal in.
It's really cool -- one gets and damaged in the fire they'll reconfigure these little discs and certainly to the net courts to get the signal out in mattered so fascinating stuff like you know -- -- thousand Barry's article green technologies to say firefighters' lines -- get foxnews.com.
Thank you so much for being here it's fascinating how --
