Fire brigade, CODIS, authorities, emergency services...

The emergency intervention services such as fire and rescue and accident and emergency doctors entail knowledge of the ground, risk assessment, prevention, the distribution of services within the territory, the coordination of response teams on the ground when they are in action…

The Geographical Information Systems and associated optimization solutions enable good decision-making and the fastest possible intervention. They address the needs of the three stages of emergency management : before, during and after the crisis.

Risk prevention and operational forecasting

Before the crisis, the fire and flood risk forecasting services follow the 3P rule : prediction, preparation, prevention.

Knowing the ground and assessing the risks

Knowing the ground and assessing the risks

The cartographic analysis features permit the accurate assessment of areas of risk : forest fires, urban fires, avalanches, industrial risks, flood risks...

The prevention services can centralize geographical information and the data associated with a given territory to create a perfect picture of the intervention areas. The GIS can be constantly enhanced with information collected on the ground, enabling the development of a rich information and statistical database.

The GIS thereby enables you to know the location of natural geographical features (watercourses, high ground, forest areas, drought areas) and inhabited areas (land registry).

Preparing and coordinating callouts

The rescue services also have to put in place the required equipment and forecasting plans.
The GIS enables them to identify the locations of water reservoirs, both artificial (tanks, swimming pools,…) and natural (ponds, lakes, watercourses,…), road networks, the whereabouts of hydrants (boxes and pillars) and equipment and infrastructure (help centers, intervention vehicles and equipment…).

These features make it possible to create communal atlases, route plans for the surveyed sites (hospitals, heritage, cultural centers, etc.) situation plans, ground plans, motorway plans as well as special plans (major events, gatherings).
They also enable you to create maps of historical events, establishments open to the public, venues assessed as sensitive by the emergency services.

This enables the agencies responsible for coordinating protection assets to distribute safety infrastructure, response vehicles and teams throughout the territory depending on the areas at risk and their accessibility.
This makes it an easy matter to draw up the Departmental Risk Analysis and Coverage Plan (SDACR), ensuring operational forecasting on the ground.

Operational phase : instigating and controlling callouts

The crisis management services must ensure the best possible operational management of the callouts.
From the handling of the call to operational management per se, the GIS is a genuine command support tool.  

Alert handling and call location

Alert handling implies call geo-location and accurate and rapid representation of the event requiring a callout.

The alert handling tools built into the GIS enable the operators quickly to display the accident's location and surrounding area. Sophisticated SITAC (Tactical Situation) tools provide a better representation of the crisis on the ground and historization of the maps depicting the situation.

These tools enable the right teams to be assigned to the callouts and to improve the responsiveness and speed of the callout.

Tracking the vehicles and teams

Implementing fleet tracking provides the Departmental Fire and Rescue Operations Center (CODIS) a real time view of the location of equipment and vehicles. Far more than just a tracking tool, tracking solutions ensures the safety of personnel on the ground.

Facilitating the return to normality and centralizing feedback

Once the crisis is over, the emergency services must facilitate the return to normality.
Logging the sequence of events and analyzing the action on the ground makes it possible to anticipate future risks and prepare action plans.
