When sending out your team to an emergency, every minute counts. Make sure they have all the information they need in an easy-to-access format in case things do not go as planned. GIS can provide you with real time, actionable information in the field and in the command centre. In case of an emergency spatial analysis will make sure information about vital assets such as hydrants will be accurate and easily accessible on any device through a central repository.
Make sure your team are fully prepared for an emergency procedure. Spatial analysis will help you plan your response rapidly in an emergency situation, telling you which teams will be best suited to respond the fastest and most efficiently.
GIS helps not only with pooling disparate sources of data together efficiently, but also with rapidly disseminating information to all internal and external audiences to aid coordination in the case of a major incident.
Information can be captured faster, in more detail, and with higher accuracy with GIS when inspecting critical assets such as hydrants. Inspection crews will be more efficient and duplication of effort will be avoided.
