FireGuide is a fire safety trainer that runs fire drills on a schedule.
FireGuide needs to be set up on the trainee’s cell phone by a human trainer (usually a parent or guardian) to give personal instructions.
This setup is as simple as making short recordings and telling FireGuide when to run fire drills.
The parent or guardian records the 3 notices and as many drills as needed, then schedules what days and times the drills run.
When it’s time for a drill to run, the trainee gets a notification on their cell phone that it is time to do a fire drill. When they tap the notification, the FireGuide app opens on their phone, and the recording for starting a drill plays.
When the FireGuide in the center of the screen is tapped, the drill recording begins to play, the FireGuide starts walking, and a timer is started.
The drill recording plays continuously until the trainee finishes the drill and taps the green “thumbs up” button.
When the drill is done, FireGuide checks to see if the trainee’s time for this drill was better than the last time.
If the time is faster, the “Congratulations!” notice is played, and FireGuide starts recording any comments the trainee may have on this drill. To stop recording comments, the trainee taps the green “thumbs up” button.
If the time is slower, the “Better Next Time” notice plays and FireGuide starts recording any comments the trainee may have on this drill. To stop recording comments, the trainee taps the green “thumbs up” button.
Feedback is the key to improving your trainee’s drill time.
FireGuide starts recording your trainee's feedback right after playing your “Congratulations” or “Better Next Time” message.
You listen to the feedback for clues on how to improve your drill messages.
