GIS mapping software for Fire and Rescue

A Common Operating Platform

Esri's GIS mapping software supplies reliable information where and when you need it most. Know who and what are at risk. See where demand is changing, understand it better and manage it differently. Execute a smarter strategy across services and agencies —all through the power of visualising, analysing, and acting on data through the lens of location.

Understanding and Managing Operational Risk

Bring a wide variety of data together to know where your community is most vulnerable, and analyse why that is, in order to reduce these risks.

Managing Demand and Performance

Identify patterns and trends to build insight into the changing demands on your services. Our GIS supports fire cover and reviews your strategic resources more effectively, to meet demand and improve performance.

Improving Community Safety

Collect information, such as safe and well visits, from the field using mobile apps. This will increase your knowledge of the community, improve data quality and speed up information gathering - saving time and resources while improving community safety.

Mobile GIS maps accessible on smartphones and tablets

A train derailment causes a massive explosion.

Calls are received into the computer-aided dispatch system. GIS displays incident details on a map, helping to route first responders to the scene. Agencies establish an Incident Command Post to manage the disaster and provide situational awareness.
