Abstract

Fire engines in China are facing challenges and limitations when driving to and while attempting to extinguish fires. These challenges and limitations are a direct result of the progressive urban development of cities and the outdated technology and framework of the fire engines currently in use. With guidance from the Tsinghua-WPI Center for Global Public Safety, this research project analyses current fire engines technology and explores smart technology options that can benefit fire engines in China by making them more adaptable to the changing urban landscape.
