Geographic information within emergency services is no longer confined to Command and Control. It is used for protection and prevention as well as response

Geography is an increasingly vital strategic and operational resource for helping police, fire, ambulance and other rescue services in protection, prevention and response.

Throughout the world, emergency services are experiencing reductions in public sector funding and recognising they are expected to do more with less. Inevitably they are prioritising their activities. Many have discovered that by using the Cadcorp Spatial Information System they can work smarter not harder. For instance, by recording incidents in Cadcorp SIS they can build up a historical landscape of previous events, and use this as a predictor of future risk levels by location. This guides their protection, prevention and response activities.

Strategic and operational applications

Emergency services are using Cadcorp SIS either directly or as component of an application in the following strategic and operational activities:

Command and control Emergency planning
Incident recording Analysis
Risk management Hot spot mapping
KPI reporting Incident support mapping
Vehicle tracking Fire hydrant management
Community fire safety Web mapping
A-Z mapping Mobile data logging
Asset management Workload modelling
Resource scheduling
