# iSafe This is an app that engages the users to report any hazards and at the same time alerts them either if some user in the area has reported a hazard or a government agency sending the alerts. This also cautions the users based on the historical data of disasters when they are in those affe...

Fires - a new way

The number, severity and area burnt by bushfires is increasing. The resources available to fire authorities to manage this problem are not increasing at a commensurate rate. As a result, bushfires are exceeding the resource capacities of authorities which is having an increasing impact on the com...

Watchtower: An operational management system with integrated Telstra messaging and CSIRO data analytics for a smarter, more connected modern emergency service

Australia has many emergency services, [Vic SES](https://www.ses.vic.gov.au/), [NSW SES](https://www.ses.nsw.gov.au/), CFA, RFS, and so on. The duty officers of many of these services still rely on spreadsheets to organise their crews, and when a job is on they have to activate crew by manually t...
