Emergency Management Spatial services

RIPE Intel offers a range of non-emergency spatial services. Many emergency services and Local Governments have little to no Geographic Information Services (GIS) capability, and when it comes to issues like communicating Fire Restriction Boundaries to the public, accuracy is paramount. If you have a requirement for a map or map data, RIPE Intel can help. With access to official National, State, Territory and local map data, small jobs can usually be turned around in a matter of hours. We can provide data in various formats including ESRI (.SHP), MapInfo (.mif), Google (.kml/.kmz) etc.

RIPE Intel can also assist with boundary descriptions for inclusion in Government Gazettes.

Real-time Warning Assessments

With a significant increase in the demand for (and scrutiny of) high quality emergency warnings, RIPE Intel now offer a near real-time mutli hazard Emergency Warning Assessment service. We assess emergency warnings against customisable criteria from recommendations, policy positions and findings to contribute toward ongoing performance improvement of emergency services.

A near real time assessment of a public warning is published on a secure website shortly after it is issued. This enables agencies to correct issues on the fly and to identify systemic issues for further attention. This service requires no modification to existing warning systems or processes.

Having warnings independently assessed contributes toward ensuring information provided to the community is informative, relevant and useful for decision making. Outcomes also include a level of protection against external scrutiny and informing training needs analysis.

CAP-AU-STD Data Services

In June 2012, the Australian Attorney-General’s Department released a new standard to enhance Australia’s emergency management warning systems by enabling emergency services to easily transmit emergency messages and public safety information through all available technology-based devices.

Although a fantastic initiative, few Australian emergency services has implemented the standard as part of their public data feeds. If your agency is seeking advice on how to implement this standard, or if you would like to access RIPE Intel’s CAP-AU-STD compliant xml data service, please Contact us.
