GIS and Workload Modelling for Cleveland Fire Brigade

Digital mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) software developer Cadcorp has announced in a press release that after a thorough and competitive evaluation process, Cleveland Fire Brigade has selected Cadcorp SIS Map Modeller software and associated Workload Modeller application as part of the brigade’s new ICT strategy to improve efficiency and effectiveness of resource deployment within the organization.

The Workload Modeller application provides transparent and flexible methods to model current resource workload against historic incident databases. It will allow the brigade to monitor levels of efficiency, model various planning scenarios and to plan for ‘what if’ situations. The Workload Modeller application is underpinned by the powerful, standards based analytical and GIS capabilities of Cadcorp SIS Map Modeller. The combination of the two products will provide Cleveland Fire Brigade with a deeper insight into the data being analysed and an invaluable toolset for deployment planning work.

“We are confident that the Cadcorp solution will provide Cleveland Fire Brigade with an excellent GIS and Mapping system whilst also demonstrating excellent value for money. The solution will be integral in supporting service planning and improvements in order to achieve our strategic priorities and objectives over the coming years.”

“It is a pleasure to welcome Cleveland Fire Brigade into the growing community of Cadcorp SIS users in the UK’s fire, rescue and emergency services,” said Mike O’Neil, managing director, Cadcorp. “We look forward to working with their staff to help the service achieve its goals.”
