We are First Due Size-Up
Born out of New York and on a mission to bring First Due Size-Up to the world. A platform focused on solving the deadly information gap issue for our first responders.
The team at First Due Size-Up are passionate about helping First Responders fire service organizations and local governments streamline their information management and respond more safely and efficiently to both emergency and non-emergency incidents. By delivering a platform for collaboration and sharing, we bridge the deadly information gap that exists for the people who need it most. Think of us as OpenData plus SaaS plus Emergency Response!
We focus on Big Data.
To enhance Emergency Response.
After a 2016 successful seed round led by New York Angels, we are 100% focused on our new solution, First Due Size-Up – a SaaS based platform built by firefighters for firefighters. The platform aggregates data from both online and offline data silos and communicates the information in a quick and easy to consume format. Combined with seamless dispatch integration, firefighters now have the data they need when they need it – helping them respond safely and more effectively. We take great pride in our commitment to excellence and to providing our clients – your neighbors with the most advanced, easy-to-use technology tools to help continually improve the transparency, efficiency, and ultimately the health, safety, and welfare of the communities they serve.
