In 1993 the City of Tacoma wrote an interface from the GIS street center line database to the fire dispatch system. This interface has been modernized to ArcInfo 9.1 with the new release of network software and topology. Using a GIS as the front end for address updates into a dispatch system enhances the accuracy of addresses, eliminates redundant data updates, and saves a significant amount of personnel time. Agency-wide address standards and data sharing will be discussed in this presentation.
