After a reorganization, the fire department of Amsterdam-Amstelland was keen to get the internal communication to a higher level. Fortunately, Plek had a smoking hot solution for them.

  • realtime incident information from the control room
  • social media feeds
  • 70% of the firemen has downloaded the app

Plek on fire

As within many organizations, employees of the Amsterdam-Amstelland fire department were not exactly fired up about their intranet. A reorganization brought the professionals of the city of Amsterdam together with the father-to-son volunteers from outside. Of course, Plek was happy to help in uniting these two very different groups of firefighters.

The Plek App

As all firefighters know: there is no smoke without a fire. Firefighters want the latest news and updates, especially on mobile. But besides regular news, the Plek app also provides the Amsterdam firefighters with a live feed of incident information, directly from the control room. Because what do firefighters get all fired up about? What do they want to immediately discuss with their colleagues? Fires, of course!

But hold your horses, I hear you say: does it work? Well, the Amsterdam firemen are on fire for the app: a whopping 70% has downloaded it.
