The Cuerpo de Bomberos will launch BomberosCR today, an online application that will put citizens directly in contact with the fire department.
According to the fire department, this technology will provide better service to the community by giving people the opportunity to report incidents. It will also give firefighters direct access to a social media platform to provide information and updates.
“This new tool will allow timely reports of emergencies throughout the country and will make available to the users an updated telephone directory of fire stations,” said a release. “In addition, it will allow firefighters to summon volunteer staff personal for specific emergencies and maintain a constant flow of information to public media.”
The new technology will be unveiled today at 9:30 a.m. at the fire station in Tibás.
