Discovery – U.S. Fire Incidents Per Capita

Funded by a grant from the FEMA Fire Prevention and Safety Grant Program

Discovery incorporates incident data from across the nation that prioritizes the top fire incidents within a selected response area and provides detail on the top incident actions taken and the location type.  The simple to use graphical map  interface allows users to drill down to State, County and Census Tract levels, which provides an excellent opportunity to gather detail at the neighborhood level as well as make comparisons to State, County and other jurisdictions you feel are important.  By breaking things down to the lowest level through Census Tracts you can build your jurisdictional data from the ground up to show differences across your response area. Pop up dialogue boxes provide the data in an easy to use format to cut and paste it into your risk assessment document. 

By zooming in on this map below you can focus on a specific geographic area and by clicking on a census tract, you can get more data related to that area.
