FOREMOST is an platform interface that prioritizes your pet’s safety. It is a preventative measure driven by human judgement from personal networks.



Foremost aids the inclusion of unattended pets in emergency plans at the first instance of an emergency incident, built upon trust relationships and personal networks embedded within local communities. Foremost uses dynamic mobile technologies in tandem with intelligent fire detection networks to address the solution space offered by a pet parent’s personal network for on-ground, first-incident support in emergencies.
