Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

In government today, it is not uncommon to hear the term Geographical Information Systems or GIS on a daily basis. Here at Eureka Fire Department, it is no different. The department, working in partnership with the City's Engineering Department, is currently working on several different GIS projects. These projects include the computerization of our entire response areas, development of a computerized mapping, and the visual display of incident related activity.

For an example of our Fire Response Area maps, please visit the City of Eureka’s GIS Web site:
