Fire is as destructive as it is useful. Without a proper pro-active approach to preventing fire outbreaks, the results could be extremely disastrous when they occur. Thus, there is a need for a fast and convenient way of reporting fire incidents. The growing usage of smartphones provides a way of equipping the public with a means of reporting fire incidents to ensure prompt response and proper management of the incidents. In this paper, we analyze the manual process of reporting fire outbreaks and design an automated FEAP – a mobile application, to enable the public to quickly alert nearest fire emergency units of any possible fire incidents. We developed FEAP with the aid of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) phases and Unified Modeling Language (UML) which was used as a model to visualize the design view of the application. An Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) was used for database design and a simple Graphical User Interface (GUI) prototype of the proposed application was designed. Our work highlights a practical application of analysis and design concepts in developing a software to providing an efficient solution in reporting fire outbreaks.
