LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the ever-increasing danger of state and national wildfire based on global climate change conditions, Alchera X, an international AI software development company, has launched the most effective, dynamic, and innovative SaaS (Software as a Solution) product that will be incorporated into the wildfire early detection and monitoring program on SJW lands.
With a 24/7 capability to detect and alert wildfires within minutes and often before a 911 call comes into first responders, FireScout was chosen by SCCFSC because of its industry-leading nighttime detection capability and 91% accuracy rate. “With the fact that even the Governor’s office has stated that wildfire season is year-round in California, Alchera X has committed the company’s technological expertise to help curb the spread of wildfires and do everything possible to create the most accurate fire notification system that provides firefighters and first responders the best chance to save property and lives,” said Michael Plaksin, Alchera X’s Vice President of Marketing. “Our work relationship and invaluable support of both SJW and SCCFS sets important groundwork for early detection wildfire camera networks. Our goal is to support the program as it can become a model in the assistance of similar communities.”
“The nature of wildfires has been evolving, with exacerbated drought conditions, population, and structure growth in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) areas in Santa Clara County increasing, along with wildfire risk. These conditions have the potential to create faster fire spread and larger fires in areas with increased population density and structure value,” said Seth Schalet, CEO of Santa Clara County FireSafe Council. “The ability for Santa Clara County FireSafe Council to serve as a value-added reseller (VAR) for Alchera X’s FireScout portfolio enables us to offer a greater array of solutions for our clients, helping them address wildfire risk by adding an early detection capability to our service offerings to protect life and property in Santa Clara County’s WUI.”
