FireView provides Fire and Emergency Response Agencies with mapping tools to help review existing deployment policies and develop new strategies. FireView integrates Fire and EMS data with GIS allowing agencies to easily map and analyze data. By identifying incident patterns and response effectiveness, resources can be more optimally redeployed.
FireView™ enables you to address NFPA Standard 1710 compliance and ISO audits as well as Standards of Cover through the use of numerous data mining tools. Our solution can be used to locate a new stations, redistribute response areas, analyze station coverage, determine first due areas and run orders in order to better serve your community.
Investigate FIRE/EMS calls for service within any response area, near or at an address or landmark such as an assisted living complex or retirement home.
Filter for incident activity by multiple categories such as call type, location type, unit, response time, date or time.
Create density, hot spot and repeat calls maps which help isolate problem areas.
Analyze response patterns through the use of such routines as Response Time Map and First Due Analysis or Distribution.
Determine the full run orders for any location within the service area.
Pinpoint the number of stations able to respond within a specific response time at any location; also referred to as a Concentration Analysis.
Optimize the response capabilities of Fire/EMS stations. Determine the estimated response zones and incident coverage by drive time or distance.
Depict the average response time per hour and DOW graphically through the use of our Temporal Response Index Reports.
Conduct queries for an ISO audit.
In order to better serve the public, New Orleans Fire Department has implemented FireView. The analysis tools within FireView will be used to assess response times as well as help allocate limited resources as efficiently as possible in the wake of Katrina.
As the city works to rebuild, numerous structures are being repaired or coming back online. The Fire Department is using building permit data to assist in tracking these structures geographically as construction progress is made.
Multiple layers of information are tracked by the New Orleans Fire Department including apparatus records, computer aided dispatch information, incident data, hydrant locations as well as building permit information.
“The entire department will benefit from the information analysis of Fireview and this will ultimately benefit the community in service improvements by having fire department decisions based upon hard data and not just intuition.”
