Abstract

Nowadays in the event of fire incident, firefighters use conventional method to locate, tracking and determine the nearest fire hydrant within the location of fire incident by refer to the mapping that available at local fire and rescue department office. This method is not practical anymore since they need to find out the nearest fire hydrant instantaneously and it is not an easy task for such emergency situation. In some cases, whenever they have arrived at the fire incident location, the exact location of fire hydrant cannot be determined immediately due to some problem such as unfamiliar with road around the incident area, unable to find for fire hydrant if it is out of sight and unable to determine whether the fire hydrant is close enough to the incident area. This project will be implementing by using two systems which are Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Global Positioning System (GPS). A chosen active RFID tag will be located at some strategic location so that the reading coverage area will be the most. RFID reader located on the fire engine will send a signal and wait the feedback response from the active tag that has crucial information regarding the available fire hydrant within that area. Once the active tag has responded, the system will alert and the corresponding hydrants information such as their picture, coordinate, their exact location and distance towards fire incident location will be available and being crosslink with the system database. The coordinate for each of fire hydrants need to be initializing first by using GPS device before being update into the system. Then, the exact location between the reader and selected fire hydrant itself can be determined by implementing the location mapping database system.
