Fire Brigade Amsterdam-Amstelland Calculates Risks With QlikView

Stocks in this article: QLIK

QlikTech (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business Intelligence (BI), today announced that the fire brigade Amsterdam-Amstelland has deployed QlikView to map the risks in the region and proactively respond to those risks. QlikView serves as the basis for a risk profile, that combines 600,000 objects in Amsterdam (buildings, rails, roads) and possible incident types (house fires, traffic accidents, carbon monoxide poisoning). It displays this information in conjunction with the recording of actual incidents and data from the Key Addresses and Buildings (BAG-register). This delivers 12 million possible incidents that the fire brigade can anticipate precisely. QlikTech partner Incentro was responsible for the implementation of QlikView.

Barry van ‘t Padje, project leader Risk Profile in the corps Amsterdam-Amstelland said: “With about 10,000 incidents per year in our region, we had a great need to estimate the risks of certain objects and areas and in the best case even prevent. QlikView helps us do that. We also added map extensions to QlikView for better insight into what incidents happen where. We are very happy with QlikView’s flexibility and the fact that you can disclose all your data with one user friendly system.”

The fire brigade Amsterdam-Amstelland uses the digital risk profile to calculate the risks as accurately as possible: the probability of an incident is multiplied with its effect. In this way the risks are mapped, however users can also zoom in on the fire incident types to see which incident is most common in which location. Because of this risk profile, the fire brigade’s management also has improved steering capabilities. They can provide an accurate training plan, focusing on the risks in the area where a fire fighter is employed. Moreover they can inform the fire districts, municipal districts and neighbourhoods better about specific risks. All information is available real-time and the system is designed so that other brigades can also work with the data.
