Firefighting planner


1.Introduce yourself (2 sec): What is your name and your team’s name?
Hi this is Daijiro and Minami, from team firefighting planner.

2. Lead us in (3 sec): What topic does your solution address, or what is your passion?
We addressed three pain points found in journey against wildfire.

3. Name your solution (5 sec): Provide a title and tagline to catch your audience’s attention (What do people gain? Where is the opportunity? What problem does it solve?)
Our solution, “Firefighting planner,” is a one-stop platform for citizens and firefighters to protect lives and nature together.

4. Describe your idea (10 sec): How does it work? (Display a prototype. Describe a user’s experience. Include how data and technology make your solution possible.)
As a citizen, I can report wildfires and ask for help.

As a firefight team manager, referring to satellite data and citizen reports, I can make and share my fire mitigation plan.

As a firefighter, I can learn from past fire suppression activities.

5. Look into the future (10 sec): Paint a picture (What will your idea change? Tantalize your audience with what it could be. What can your solution do for people, the world, and beyond?)
Our solution will reduce three painful numbers of wildfire: burned area, economic losses, and # of houses at risk.

Let’s save more lives and nature together.
