History

Date Posted to GIS:
2004
  • 2004: Fire zones were originally created to support the FDM Fire Dispatch system. The zones were digitized from maps supplied from all three North Shore Fire departments.
  • 2007: The zone ID was used to aid in dispatching emergency vehicles to a certain location. However, since 2007 City of Surrey now dispatches for North Vancouver and it is unknown whether these Fire Zones are still utilized.
