In the 9th episode of the Microsoft Stories podcast, Chief Fire Officer Chris Davies QFSM, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service (MAWWFRS), discussed how MAWWFRS are using the latest technology to help its firefighters at incidents and in their training.
In this episode, Microsoft Stories Podcast focus on Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, one of the largest fire services in the UK. It looks after 12,000 square kilometres that includes numerous mountains and 650 kilometres of coastline. It’s also an organisation steeped in tradition. So when Chris Davies became Chief Fire Officer, he made it his mission to drag it into the 21st century. Now, the firefighters are using Microsoft Surface devices to help them free people trapped in car accidents, and HoloLens to provide remote training.
You will hear from Chris in this podcast, as well as Ryan Lewis, Microsoft’s National Technology Strategist for all the public sector organisations in Wales, about how the country is increasingly embracing digital transformation.
