TWO PROMINENT ESRI BUSINESS PARTNERS MERGE TO BECOME THE NEW FIREWHAT, INC.

Dunsmuir, CA – June 15, 2015 -- In the 19th and early 20th century fire and water were used to create the steam engines that pushed technology to the limits of that time period. On June 15th, 2015, fire and water meet again with the merging of two Geographic Information System (GIS) companies, FireWhat, Inc. and Geo-Spatial Solutions. Both companies bring to the table years of expertise in their respective fields. Geo-Spatial Solutions focuses on the maintenance activities for agriculture and water monitoring and FireWhat’s focus is on emergency disaster response mapping. This union of fire and water will once again push the limits of technology, in this case GIS, in a bold new direction. 

Both companies are Silver Partners with Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri) and met in the Emerging Business Startup Program offered by Esri. CEO of FireWhat, Inc., Sam Lanier, “we’ve always attributed our success in part to Esri, but the merger of two companies from the Emerging Partner Program really underscores the value of Esri’s programs.  We look forward to combining our resources and developing new and innovative solutions for our customers”.  Rusty Merritt FireWhat, Inc. COO, “the Emerging Partner Program gave FireWhat the opportunity to explore and develop new ways of doing business, but we never thought a merger with another company would come as a result of the program.  The merger of the two companies combines our people and resources to put us in a much better positioned to the demand we’re seeing across our two verticals”.

FireWhat, Inc. will now be in three locations with offices in Redding and Dunsmuir, California and Bend, Oregon. These three locations are strategic for rapid emergency response, while at the same time being well positioned to serve the water infrastructure and irrigation mapping needs of the Western United States.
