Wuhan University of Technology
WPI students worked with Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) to create a framework for selecting fire station locations. ArcGIS analyses were used to research the viability of the locations of two fire stations close to WUT’s campus. To justify the results, qualitative data collection in the form of interviews and surveys was performed at a local fire department. This report outlines the background, methodology, and the findings of this study. With this information, a conclusion and a number of recommendations were developed for the sponsors, which could change the current fire station layout servicing WUT.
