Meet Anthony Shafer (left) and Shea Broussard (right). Pictured with Jack Dangermond (ESRI founder and GIS visionary). Shea and Antony were brought together by fire. Anthony's successful career as a fire technology officer with LAFD for over 40 years and Shea a victim of fire at a young age. So while this company stems from a very real and personal experience, the technology developed to create FlameMapper provides real statistically sound solutions to limit loss of life, infrastructure, and property. 


To limit the loss of structures during a wildfire. We accomplish this by building technology that firefighter's and local communities gain true value from. Be sure to request a live demo to see their signature products in action. Shea and Anthony bring almost 50 years of "boots on the ground" firefighter experience to the table between them.  As a result the technology is intuitive and easy to use from day one.

Did you know that FlameMapper is an ESRI  STARTUP/ Emerging Business Partner? FlameMapper integrates the latest in fire science prediction / containment modeling with GeoDesign [ landscape level planning ]. #The Science of Where #ESRI
