  7. Community Risk Reduction and Special Events

  8. Community Risk Reduction  Special Events  All cities and

    communities have some form of a Special Event.  Pre Incident Planning for Special Events.  2 or More Areas of a City will be affected.  A Special Event is treated as a community along with the area that the event is being held.  Many if not all participants and spectators do not live in the area.  During the event the City that is hosting the event still needs Fire and EMS Services provided.
  9. GIS AND COMMUNITY RISK REDUCTION  GIS is used to

    help us make better decisions:  Pre Incident Planning.  Helping to plan for resources needed during the event.  Looking at response times for optimum coverage and protection.  Collecting historical data of calls made from the event.  Looking at historical data of the time of day of the event and how the rest of the city was protected.
