Residents across Cheshire can now view the latest information about fires and incidents in their area following the launch of Cheshire's detailed fire and rescue service interactive online map.
All visitors to Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service's award-winning website - www.cheshirefire.gov.uk - will be able to see what incidents have occurred in their community each month by entering their postcode or the name of their local fire station.
The map shows the different types of incidents that have occurred, with incidents broken down into the following categories:
- Accidental house fires
- Fires in commercial properties
- Deliberate primary fires
- Deliberate secondary fires
- Road traffic collisions attended by the service
- False alarms from automatic systems
- Malicious false alarms.
The mapping system provides detailed, street-level public information and also allows the Service to establish trends and patterns across the county.
Tim Bevington, Head of Corporate Communications, is delighted with the result: "Our website is an important way for us to offer safety advice and support to residents and businesses. We work hard to ensure it is used to pass on useful and worthwhile information as soon as it is available in an easily accessible way. Our new street level incident map is a further enhancement to our highly-rated site."
The street level incident map has been developed by SSi Solutions to Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service specifications with the aim of giving Cheshire residents access to information immediately as it is linked to real-time operational systems.
