City of Danville is Winner of a 2011 Governor’s Technology Award in the Category: Innovation in Local Government
COVITS 2011
The most innovative projects in government information technology were honored at the 2011 Governor's Technology Awards ceremony at the Commonwealth of Virginia Innovative Technology Symposium (COVITS) on September 27, 2011. The Governor's Technology Awards program honors outstanding achievements and recognizes innovative technology initiatives in the public sector throughout Virginia.

The City of Danville was a winner for "Fire Department Technologies" in the Innovation in Local Government category. 

"The Danville Fire Department (DFD) had a long history of paper-and-pen record keeping and aversion to change. One manual process -- annual preplans -- came to light when DFD began using the City’s Geographic Information System (GIS). DFD employees, even those who had resisted technology in the past, realized that perhaps technology could improve their jobs in other ways.

What started as a desktop web application for managing preplans evolved into a deployment of in-vehicle Toughbooks and multi-modem devices which automatically map dispatches as they are received and display associated preplan and GIS information. Gradually, interfaces were created to expose data not previously shared between departments. Best of all, the laptops are finding new uses in the field for state EMS reporting and data collection. Technology has taken hold in DFD!"
