When a fire occurs, any delay of responding fire companies can make the difference between the rescue of occupants versus serious injury or death. The critical time between fire containment and flashover can be measured in seconds. From the moment an emergency call is received through the deployment of tactical resources, GIS helps reduce critical time and increases efficiency. GIS technology brings additional power to the fire personnel whereby hazards are evaluated, service demands are analyzed, and resources deployed.
