North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service is the latest emergency service to select Aligned Assets to supply its corporate gazetteer management system.
By opting for the Symphony Bluelight system they are joining an expanding group of emergency services, which includes the award winning Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service and the British Transport Police, both of whom are using Symphony Bluelight to experience the very best in gazetteer technology.
As the only gazetteer system in the UK that is compatible with the Ordnance Survey’s AddressBase Premium, the UK’s first definitive address database, Symphony Bluelight will provide North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service with all the tools needed to create an operationally-ready corporate gazetteer.
Covering over 8,280 square kilometres, encompassing both the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service will be using Symphony Bluelight to build on the AddressBase Premium data with many non-postal addresses that are essential to their work.
Examples of the additional data include moorland features, potholes and caves, whilst risk elements will also be written in such as premises with oxygen canisters. With this specific, local data, combined with AddressBase Premium, the gazetteer will contain data to cover every contingency.
North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service are already looking to the future with plans to integrate their corporate gazetteer into all frontline and back office systems through the use of Aligned Assets’ integration software. By using Symphony SinglePoint and Symphony iExchange, all systems, from mobilising to fire safety, will be accessing the most detailed, accurate and up to date addressing data ever available.
“We’re delighted to welcome North Yorkshire as the tenth Fire and Rescue Service to select Symphony Bluelight for their corporate gazetteer management system,” said Dinesh Thanigasalam, Managing Director of Aligned Assets. “The plans they have for their gazetteer are very exciting, offering an ever improving service to the public. We look forward to supporting them every step of the way.”
