Aragón’s firefighting teams use GpsGate for live GPS tracking, map integrations, and camera feeds. The platform keeps workers safe while battling active fires.

Geo-positioning in forest fire operations is essential. With GpsGate, we can work efficiently in emergencies to save more people and resources.”

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, July 22, 2022 / — Wildfires are raging across southern Europe. For fire management teams, access to real-time GPS data is essential. Aragón’s forestry department in northeastern Spain uses GpsGate’s fleet tracking software to support their wildfire management strategy. Live GPS tracking and map integrations help them monitor active burning sites and protect emergency workers.

At present, Aragón’s teams are battling a 15,000-hectare fire surrounding Ateca. With 2,000 people evacuated from their homes, it’s now up to the Natural Environment and Forest Management Department to contain the blaze.

“Geo-positioning in forest fire operations is essential. Without the exact location of our teams, it’s hard to keep them safe. The ability to receive images and video data from our firefighting fleets and integrate it with GpsGate means we can work efficiently in emergencies to save more people and natural resources.”

Aragonesa de Servicios Telemáticos (AST) used GpsGate to custom-build Aragón’s fire watch platform. Via GpsGate Server, fleet managers know the exact GPS location of aerial and ground firefighting crews. Map layers, helicopter video feeds, and points of interest equip control room operators with the right data at the right time.

Remote teams in government and emergency services have secure access to Aragón’s fire watch data. There is little time wasted in dispatching fleet vehicles and enforcing public safety operations like road closures and evacuations. With telematics software via GpsGate, Aragón has the tools they need to keep loss of life and natural resources to a minimum.
