It was the objective of the Pre-Commercial Procurement in Smart@fire to develop and test prototypes that would facilitate future purchases of ICT-enriched firefighter gear by local fire brigades in Europe.
It is important to note that PCP is clearly separated from any subsequent purchases of commercial volumes of the end-product. As such, the actual procurement does not belong to the scope of Smart@fire. It does, however, belong to the scope of the project to deliver several instruments that will help interested parties in procuring smart PPE.
To that end, Smart@fire has developed guidelines and template documents. These are available for download here.
