Fire data sources?

I’m new to the OKI community and am interested in public safety data (beyond crime data). Has there been any efforts (I wasn’t able to find any in my research) to gather fire and/or EMS (pre-hospital care) data across the cities represented in the data census? Thanks!

Not that I am aware of. You can have a look at this - http://www.globalfiredata.org/

A New Zealand company - Thundermaps - has used fire incident information from the New Zealand Fire Service (public service fire fighters) for an incident reporting service. Their CEO comments on limitations and frustrations wth the information here
Thundermaps on NZ Fire Service Data

Thundermaps are working on a range of safety apps that could use public safety data too
