ORFE sophomore works to help firefighters

Aug. 14, 2013

Eddie Zhou, a rising sophomore in Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE), is part of a team of Princeton University students developing an easy-to-use database for firefighters.

The product, called FireStop, aims to quickly provide important information to fire chiefs, including building layouts, fire hydrant locations and hazardous material warnings, making it all readily accessible from an iPad.

The team is scheduled to present their product to potential investors at this year's eLab Demo Day.
