Firefighters scanning codes at #twobullsfire camp
Firefighters at the Two Bulls Fire access fire information in much the same way as the public - through bulletin boards with maps and QR codes. QR codes are the funny square bar codes which can be "read" by a smart phone with a free bar-code scanner app.

For instance, the QR code below, if scanned with a barcode scanner on your phone, will take you to the Two Bulls Fire Facebook page.  These codes on  bulletin boards, help people take fire information with them in their phones. We're goin' mobile!
