The Collier County Emergency Medical Services serves the largest county in Florida with a land area of 2,030 square miles-the majority of which is covered by vast areas of rural farmland, state preserves, and Everglades National Park. Furthermore, in addition to its 276,000 year-round residents, Naples experiences a large influx of seasonal residents and tourists who are potentially unfamiliar with the area-often problematic when reporting emergencies. Response time is therefore critical to ensuring quality medical services for Collier County citizens. The new AVL system provides a tool for monitoring all deployed vehicles, including one helicopter, in real-time. The in-vehicle map viewer allows drivers to enter an incident's address, graphically display it, and simultaneously upload live location data to headquarters. Meanwhile the AVL component at headquarters visually displays each vehicle's location and destination. Furthermore, an error capturing function during the geocoding process enables GIS staff to update address data.
