Fireside Chat Description: When wildfires rage, firefighters need fast, accurate and easy access to a wealth of
constantly changing data. Where are the fires, the threatened homes, or the nearest water supply? What are other
teams of firefighters doing, or planning? All of this affects the best way to fight the fire, but the plans made an
hour ago can rapidly be rendered useless as the wind shifts direction. With SimTable firefighters receive up-to-the-
minute data, delivered straight to a handheld device in the field. And behind the scenes, Firebase (which has
nothing to do with fires) is putting the cloud to work storing all of this data, and making sure everyone sees the
latest updates just as soon as they happen. SimTable CEO Stephen Guerin and Firebase co-founder and CEO James
Tamplin will show how their companies work together in the cloud to give firefighters the tools they need, and
discuss other application areas from defense to gaming.
