Fire Department Technologies

The City of Danville was a winner for "Fire Department Technologies" in the Innovation in Local Government category.

The Danville Fire Department (DFD) had a long history of paper-and-pen record keeping and aversion to change. One manual process -- annual pre-plans -- came to light when DFD began using the City's Geographic Information System (GIS). DFD employees, even those who had resisted technology in the past, realized that perhaps technology could improve their jobs in other ways.

What started as a desktop web application for managing pre-plans evolved into a deployment of in-vehicle Toughbooks and multi-modem devices which automatically map dispatches as they are received and display associated pre-plan and GIS information. Gradually, interfaces were created to expose data not previously shared between departments. Best of all, the laptops are finding new uses in the field for state EMS reporting and data collection. Technology has taken hold in DFD!
