From deciding where to build new fire stations and in which stations to keep ladder trucks, to monitoring disasters as they happen, in real time, with only a PC and an Internet connection, from mapping wildfires tens of thousands of acres in size with GPS equipment and a helicopter, to picking up the pieces after a major earthquake, GIS is making emergency management a faster and more accurate means of helping people cope.
