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. 

 OUR MISSION:

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
