Denco 9-1-1 Brings Indoor Maps to Schools, Providing 9-1-1 Actionable Location Information
This project addressed the challenges of locating 9-1-1 callers indoors by utilizing GeoComm Indoor Maps and Denco 9-1-1's GIS data to extend Emergency Communications Centers (ECCs) mapping capabilities. By addressing the challenges and establishing an indoor mapping program, Denco 9-1-1 empowered themselves with a visual representation of indoor spaces providing 9-1-1 actionable location information for improved emergency response situational awareness.
With the addition of indoor maps for their area public schools, Denco 9-1-1 telecommunicators are now able to clearly tell where 9-1-1 calls inside school buildings are coming from. The consumable location information includes specifics such as room number, common area locations, clearly-defined exterior entrances, interior door locations, security cameras, and more.
"As location accuracy improves, the ECCs in the district will receive location information identifying not only the building from where the 9-1-1 call originates, but more precise location information within the building. The addition of indoor maps integrated with our 9-1-1 software supports emergency personnel identification of specific room locations of 9-1-1 callers," Greg Ballentine, Executive Director, Denco Area 9-1-1 District.
Denco 9-1-1 continues to add public school buildings to their indoor mapping program and has worked with GeoComm to develop a case study that overviews their project and the value indoor maps provides to 9-1-1, emergency response, and schools in their region.
