ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the need for firefighters to be knowledgeable of the technological breakthroughs in decision-making and emergency response in the U.S. Firefighters are provided with geographic information system (GIS) databases and aerial maps that capture information on locations that may be available from different offices. With the emergence of these technological innovations, firefighters are more informed in facing job responsibilities safely and efficiently.
