The Hagerman Fire District in East Patchogue was looking for a way for their fire response personnel to use the location of hydrants, major points of interest, and roads in order to enable route finding and reduce response times. Utilizing Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping software, H2M created a new District map identifying these items as well as a street index for easily locating streets.
The map combined GIS data layers from county agencies with custom GIS layers created by H2M in order to provide an up-to-date representation of conditions throughout the District. For easy reference, we also provided the District with a set of wall-sized maps, as well as smaller maps for on-the-go use in their emergency response vehicles. The use of GIS allows the map to be quickly and easily updated and configured in the future.
