Sacramento Fire Department uses new live streaming app to keep public informed

Sacramento Fire Department uses new live streaming app to keep public informed


The Sacramento Fire Department has been serving the community since 1872, making it the oldest paid fire department west of the Mississippi, according to the department's spokesman Roberto Padilla. Now, the department is among the first few fire departments in California to utilize a new app to further inform the public in the case of an emergency.

'Periscope' is a new social media app that allows users to broadcast live pictures from their cell phone camera to a potentially global audience. The app runs through Twitter, and users can connect with an audience in real time through their cellphones. It operates similarly to a live chat room with a video stream.

According to Periscope's website, the creators wanted to "build the closest thing to teleportation."
