Fighting Fires With Information:
Improving Fire-Rescue Services, Standard of Cover, and Firefighter Safety Through Interoperability
To manage a modern fire/rescue agency, it is important to have access to the right data for analysis and reporting. To communicate well during an emergency incident it is important to exchange reliable information and situational awareness. Good analysis with current and accurate data helps departments prevent emergencies, reduce the impact of disasters, and respond and recover from events more efficiently with better outcomes. This webcast will introduce the basic principles behind the new NFPA 950 data development and exchange standard and will present an overview of how GIS can help your department manage information technology to achieve the objectives established by this important initiative.
Please join Fire Engineering and Esri for this webcast presented by Jennifer Schottke and Talbot Brooks.
