Esri's solution for fire department accreditation


Firefighters make critical decisions based on limited information every day. Agencies should strive to generate verified data for emergency and nonemergency needs to provide responders with the right data at the right time. Through the power of location intelligence, organizations can now adopt a smarter, more integrative approach to safety.

Through the accreditation process, GIS can be used to analyze, measure, and share data with decision-makers. This data can come from computer-aided dispatch software, records management systems, community risk reduction activities, or any source deemed appropriate by the agency.

GIS supports the self-assessment process

The Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE) accreditation is "an all-hazard, quality improvement model based on risk analysis and self-assessment that promotes the establishment of community-adopted performance targets for fire and emergency service agencies." This model of continual improvement is heavily dependent on the collection and analysis of data, and GIS supports the self-assessment. The benefits of using the appropriate GIS data to measure standards of cover performance and focus resources are far-reaching.
