fire department

The Fire Department is usually a mix of paramedics, emergency medical technicians, and first responders serving the community with 24 hour response to include fire suppression, medical emergencies, hazardous materials events, and other life threatening situations. An efficient Fire Department should be supporting these efforts with fire prevention, disaster preparedness, and public education programs, as well as on-going training for all Department staff. GIS for Fire Departments and related organizations in government is useful for analyzing incidents, tracking patterns, activity, and more.
