Challenge: Creating Regional 911 Response Orders & Medevac First Dues
Track: Fire, Rescue, and EMS
Authors: David Simms
In 2011, Prince William County, was part of a team who received the ESRI SAG Award. This was a major first step. Effective regional emergency response reduces significant impacts when collaborating, data sharing, and using GIS. We will discuss some of the regional collaborative efforts made, review parts of the data requirements, see some of the results created and benefits obtained. A method of establishing and prioritizing Medevac response using Thiessen Polygon analysis is also discussed.
