International Fire Fighter Profiled Us!


Last year, Australia was severely hit by the catastrophic bushfire season. Over 17 million hectares of land were burnt, destroying 3,094 homes all across Australia*. During this dire situation, communication is extremely vital both to victims and rescue operators.

Dandelions' CEO, Brian Lim, recognized the importance of being able to communicate in such extremity, especially during a disaster. The significance of communication inspired him to design a tool that could enable people and rescue teams to communicate even when power and telecommunications infrastructure are destroyed.

Brian Lim's innovation captured the International Fire Fighter Magazine's eyes. In December 2020, Brian and his company were featured on the 68th issue of the IFF magazine.

What Is International Fire Fighter Magazine

International Fire Fighter is the leading global publication for municipal and industrial firefighters and the fire and rescue industry.

The editorial features are written by industry experts and comprise a unique blend focussing on the latest technology, training methods, and equipment as well as highlighting sector-specific issues from around the world.

Regular product and company profiles, events updates and news make International Fire Fighter the first choice read for fire and rescue professionals.

How we can help during Bushfires

Dandelions staff visited Corryong, a small town near Albury, NSW during Black Summer in early 2020, where they saw first hand the devastation of homes, the environment, and local infrastructure. After chatting with the locals, it was clear that they had little faith in commercial communication services during the fires.

Fire fronts destroyed rural telephone exchanges, and it would take weeks to service. The experienced locals relied on crowded UHF channels, and community halls for coordination and communication during fires. However, it was clear that managing this process could be greatly improved with direct connections to the people that matter over 5G or WiFi.

Dandelions wants to give the people involved in emergencies more tools to help locate, coordinate and communicate, to save lives, and minimise risk. With rapid aerial delivery of a telecommunications package in the field, civilians, and first responders alike can bring their own device, connect and access crucial information channels.
