LAFD Debuts 'LAFDmobile' Smartphone Application

Wednesday, December 01, 2010 |

NOTE:
The hosting service that supported development of the LAFDmobile application [emulator] described below, has announced they will discontinue service on March 28, 2014. We will provide free service until that time. When a successor application is developed, it will be announced here on the LAFD News & Information blog.
The Los Angeles Fire Department is pleased to unveil LAFDmobile, a free application for iPhone and Android smartphones.

Created and funded as a proof-of-concept by a veteran firefighter to support the "LAFD Everywhere" initiative, LAFDmobile is designed to put timely and authoritative information into the hands of mobile Angelenos.

Though the free application works only on two platforms at this time, there are plans to include other popular devices.

Convenient and easy to use, LAFDmobile consolidates many of the Los Angeles Fire Department's existing on-line offerings into a single mobile dashboard.

To install the LAFDmobile application on your iPhone or Android device, simply enter the URL (web address) below into your smartphone's existing browser:

NOTE: The URL above is case sensitive (all lower case) and must be visited via your existing mobile device web browser. The LAFDmobile application is not available in iTunes or the Android Marketplace. Those with non-supported smartphones can obtain similar information through the Department's LAFD.ORG website and other on-line offerings.

Dear Friend of the LAFD,

LAFDmobile is an amateur effort designed to be a proof of concept - and a work in progress.

Because there are no LAFD budget dollars dedicated to LAFDmobile, we need your guidance.

We welcome candid and creative feedback in this comments thread or via email to:

LAFDmobile@gmail.com


Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

Brian Humphrey
Firefighter/Specialist
Public Service Officer
Los Angeles Fire Department
