Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

GIS helps 911 systems and Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) personnel identify dispatchable addresses more quickly during unfolding events. The ArcGIS platform accurately displays available resources and provides first responders and call centers with more reliable routes, reducing emergency response times and saving lives.

Accurate and dispatchable locations can improve first responder success. More lives can be saved, crimes stopped, and fires contained with next generation 911 communications technology. Real-time, smart GIS maps help emergency medical services (EMS) personnel, police officers, and firefighters get to those in need fast—and with complete situational awareness.

Mapping information at a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) is critical to provide emergency service providers' location information. Inaccurate Geographical Information System (GIS) data could mean the difference between several feet or several hundred feet, impeding effective delivery of emergency response, thus impacting lives and property.
