Case Study: Fire Department Embraces Pictometry® Imagery Technology

Smithfield Fire Department

Smithfield Fire DepartmentTechnology is important to the Town of Smithfield, RI. From the assessor’s office to the fire department, the use of Pictometry imagery and technology has been the talk of the town. During a recent interview with the town’s assessor, Suzanne Kogut, she stated, “My hope for the Town of Smithfield is to see Pictometry imagery used in every department and especially in public safety. The police department uses it and now we are very excited to see widespread use of it in the fire department through the leadership of Captain and Fire Marshal James Waterman.”

Captain Waterman is currently using PictometryOnline (POL) more than anyone. “I love it,” raved Waterman. “I use it to capture current and historic views for fire investigations. I use POL to pull all the views including the top down (ortho) and the north, east, west and south views (obliques) to include in my reports.” (PictometryOnline has been replaced with CONNECTExplorer.)
