Implementing Regional Public Safety GIS Data and AVL Tracking

The Orange County Fire Authority is one of the largest fire departments in the United States, with 1,500 staff and firefighters that serve 1.3 million people in 22 cities over a 553-square-mile area.

Psomas established a framework GIS program enabling interoperability among Orange County public safety agencies for mapping, AVL, CAD Geofile maintenance, CAD operations, and RMS data sharing. A GIS environment was designed and implemented based on regional standards, a shared regional database, and operations and maintenance procedures.

Psomas also designed and implemented a computer network supporting data access, maintenance, and information exchange among the participating agencies.
