Hot Spot is a system designed to help firefighters. The changemaker came with the idea that firefighters all have personal smart devices, but official tools are just paper maps and radios. They worked with RHoK at the Summer 2013 Hackathon to develop working prototypes of a web-app for displaying and annotating maps, and some radio hardware for syncing data between fire trucks.
