Country Fire Authority
The current population growth and urban expansion in Victoria, Australia is increasing the need for effective fire control through the planning and allocation of fire safety resources. This project assisted the Country Fire Authority (CFA) by modeling emergency incidents in Victoria, forecasting future incident patterns, and identifying high fire risk regions. This task was accomplished by developing a prediction tool using Geographical Information Systems. In addition to assisting the CFA with fire suppression planning, this method may aid other institutions and communities by establishing a new standard for fire risk assessment.
