GIS Collection Form

Why complete a GIS analysis?

All too often we find ourselves trying to justify our staffing levels against arbitrary numbers and formulas. In past performance audits the State Auditor has used comparisons such as "number of fire fighters per 1,000 population." What does this number tell us? Absolutely nothing. GIS can quantitatively assess how well your staffing and deployment meets NFPA and OSHA national standards. Taking this concept one step further, we can compare GIS studies of similar sized departments to explain the difference in staffing levels and arm ourselves with answers to questions such as, "City X operates with less staffing and less stations why can't you?"

 

Please fill out the form as completely as possible if you would like to participate in the comparison. Complete the forms for as many stations as you have. The results of your study will be shared with you before you give permission for them to be used by any other IAFF local.

 

If you would like, a web-based report can be created specifically for you. An example of a report can be found here.
