GIS-powered National Mutual Aid System will allow easier resource sharing across fire jurisdictions
from State Scoop
Firefighters may soon gain a faster and easier way to ask for help from neighboring departments during major incidents. Made possible through a partnership among the International Association of Fire Chiefs, Intermedix and Esri, a new cloud-based system is being developed that could shave hours off the time it sometimes takes to request additional help, while also enabling the expansion of mutual aid agreements across state lines.
