London Fire Brigade has awarded the contract for a new incident command operating system to Unblur, the Barcelona, Spain headquartered specialist in emergency response technology.

The 10-year deal, announced in May 2022, is part of brigade’s digital transformation of the fireground - the area where a firefighting operation is taking place.

Unblur IRIS Core was selected as part of a tendering process; the technology will be used as the incident command operating system on command units - an operational vehicle that provides communications, technology and working space to manage an incident.

London Fire Brigade’s Assistant Commissioner Dominic Ellis said IRIS Core will “help improve information gathering and assist incident commanders to make informed decisions to help save lives and protect property.”

IRIS Core is already used by the Hereford and Worcestershire, Mid and West Wales, as well as Shropshire Fire and Rescue Services. The Fire Service College in Gloucestershire has an alliance with Unblur for training.
