Space age technology has provided this newest fire extinguishing development. As a new innovation in fire extinguishing technology it is green sensitive, non toxic, non-corrosive and leaves no residue after use! The near mishap on the International Space Station in 1997 initiated the development of this new fire fighting technology which is available now for home use in the JE Series Portable Fire Extinguishers. With its push button start, this unique nano technology will immeadiately extinguish small fires at a safe distance. Clean up, if any, is easy with a damp cloth. Fixed systems are also available for engine rooms, electrical consoles and computer rooms. Compared with conventional pressurised based extinguishers, the JE Series enjoys numerous advantages such as compact size, no annua...
What keeps firefighters safe while they're working to save our lives?
Nearly 90 percent of fire-related firefighter injuries happen when a firefighter's radio signal is blocked by walls, tunnels or trees. The US Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology division has three projects in the works to cut down on these injuries, the GLANSER tracking device, the WISPER signal router, and the PHASER vital signs monitor. The GLANSER is a portable tracking device that can track up to 500 firefighters simultaneously in a 50-story building. The PHASER monitors a firefighter's pulse, body temperature and blood pressure. The GLANSER and PHASER both relay information over a 900-MHz frequency. When a firefighter is out of radio range, the WISPER system is activated. It drops tiny disposable fire-resistant routers along the firefighter's path that track the...

This project details an investigation in the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to create a digital file which, in combination with a GPS kit and standard digital construction drawings, can be used to localize or calibrate a site remotely. This system was evaluated and found to be very accurate. The topic was explored at the request of an industry, in an attempt to minimize surveying and labour expenses. This report offers a potential means of cutting down on survey expenses and accelerating contract schedules. Group Members: Ronald Darraugh, Brandon Nussey, Simon Sweeney, Bryan Dewar
