West Midlands Fire service using your phones as eyes

Members of the public dialling 999 are able to show firefighters the scale and seriousness of incidents using their phones.

A secure direct link via text message enables a live stream of the incident from the user’s smartphone.

It’s called 999EYE and allows the fire service to view the scale of fires in real-time.
