ALCHERA X was pleased to participate in the annual Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Conference held at the Peppermill Resort in Reno, Nevada, from March 28 to March 30, 2023. Each year, several hundred firefighters, outreach specialists, scientists, planners, conservationists, insurance professionals, and others with a stake in wildfire protection from across the nation and even from other countries gather in Reno for this event sponsored by the International Association of Fire Chiefs. The attendees were offered invaluable hands-on training and interactive sessions designed to address the various challenges presented by wildland fire.
It was the first year that ALCHERA X attended this conference. ALCHERA’s booth showcased its industry-leading fire detection software solution, FireScout. Although FireScout was not the only wildland fire-detection software presented at the conference, it was the most effective one. With 24/7/365 capability, the highest daytime accuracy rate, and the only nighttime detection feature available on the market, the FireScout program is the AI leader in disaster prevention in wildfire management. The conference itself was filled with fantastic networking opportunities and speakers. ALCHERA X is now connected to specialists from Hawaii to Canada.
Michael Plaksin, ALCHERA X’s Vice President of Marketing, who has recently become a member of the International Association of Fire Chiefs, was a speaker during one of the sessions at WUI. “The ALCHERA X team had an outstanding event at The Wildland Urban Interface 2023 show. It gave us a greater opportunity to deliver the latest information about the world’s most effective way to ‘Detect and Protect’ at city, county, and state levels. We were able to have additional meetings with potential new customers of FireScout and strengthen product knowledge and relationships with existing clients,” Plaksin stated.
Consistent with the current global business objectives of ALCHERA X, the keynote session helped to introduce FireScout to wildland professionals from outside the US. Recently gaining market share in Australia and Korea, ALCHERA X is successfully promoting the best AI-detection solution to other wildfire-prone parts of the world.
