Maug - Network Analyst & ISO Accreditation

  1. 1. Using GIS for Fire Department ISO ReviewBy: William Rockwell iMAUG 11-18-10
  2. 2. Project Outline•Vernon Hills provides GIS services to 3Fire Districts, with a 4th in the works.•Vernon Hills is covered by 2 FireProtection Districts •Countryside Fire Protection District (91%) Vernon Hills residential •Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Fire Protection District •Long Grove FPD is adjacent to Vernon Hills •Wauconda (pending agreement)•Clients are charged hourly rate thatequals the cost of GIS personnel(salary + benefits)
  3. 3. Project Agreement• Desired results, data, timelines, andcost are clearly worked out in advance
  4. 4. Countryside FPD Project Overview• What is ISO and why does it matter? – ISO (Insurance Service Office) involved in underwriting, rating, and statistics for US – Assigns a PPC (Public Protection Classification) to each Fire agency as they meet National Fire Protection standards – PPC ranks from Level 1 (Best) to Level 10 – Better ISO score = lower homeowner insurance – Countryside was last reviewed in 1993 (level 3)
  5. 5. Countryside FPD Project DataLake County Developed “in house”• Centerlines • GPS hydrants• Parcels (for CFPD) • Georeferenced as-builts• Fire District boundaries – Digitized water mains – Digitized wells / pumps• County hydrants, water structures, and mains • Disparate attributes• Aerials (2008) • Created network with Network Analyst (60 day) – Routes – Polygons
  6. 6. Countryside FPD Project• GIS needs – Map 13 individual water systems • Display data cleanly for inspector – Inspector used maps to go on-site and test / verify equipment • Show water sources - Wells / pump houses, GPM, JAWA interconnects, tanks, # of hydrants, water mains & sizes • GPS hydrants and digitize water mains – some systems were hand drawn maps – Stats on number of hydrants, who owns them
  7. 7. Countryside FPD Project• GIS needs continued – Analyze wet and dry fire hydrant area coverage by road miles (network analyst) • 4,000 ft road buffer dry hydrants • 1,000 ft road buffer wet hydrants • 1,000 ft road buffer all hydrants • Calculate area of district covered by each – Calculate road distance from station to structure fires, average response time – Land use, 3+ story buildings, other random maps
  8. 8. Countryside FPD Project• GIS needs continued – Updated 10+ year old map books for fire / EMS vehicles • 159 pages – Made all maps viewable in ArcReader
