SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2017
HazardHub, the nation’s only third-generation supplier of geospatial risk data, has announced the release of FireStationHub, the largest and most accurate fire station location database available with more than 54,000 fire station locations.
Bob Frady, CEO of HazardHub says, “Fire Station locations are critical factors in determining the insurability of a property. We previously used a variety of sources but found them all lacking. So, we went out and built our own. FireStationHub offers an incredibly more accurate assessment of where fire stations are located, along with how far away those stations are from any property in the US.”
FireStationHub was built by HazardHub from a variety of state, local and federal sources. In addition, HazardHub continuously scans local news announcements about fire station openings, closings, and moves.
FireStationHub contains the following data elements –
Fire Station Name
Responding Fire District
Full Time vs Volunteer Staffing
Straight-line distance to the Fire Station
Driving Distance to the Fire Station
Drive Time to the Fire Station
FireStationHub is a critical component to HazardHub’s Fire Protection Grade, which provides an assessment of fire protection coverage for any address in the US. The inclusion of Driving Distance brings HazardHub’s methodology in significantly closer alignment to the AAIS Fire Protection methodology.
Brady Foust, Chief Science Officer of HazardHub, adds “Building a fire station database is a time consuming process. We’re excited that Fire-StationHub represents the next generation of Fire Station location data. “
