Recent years have shown an increase in the use of tools that enhance situational awareness. Use of GPS for navigation has become common usage. Furthermore, in many countries vehicle based computer systems are currently being fielded for first responders providing preparative information access. For example in the Netherlands several fire service organizations have introduced so-called Mobile Data Terminals that give the fire service vehicles’ crew access to information about buildings, factories, storage of chemical substances, water supply points etc.
