Update 8/1/11: I've since updated (and finished) the KC Map, and moved on to others. See below.


Hey guys.


Since moving up to the KC metro area, I've wanted to have an idea of where all the major (and some minor) fire stations are at, since I work with a few of them from various departments. So I got bored one day and started mapping them out on Google Maps...and it's kinda gone from there.


Check it out:

I now have over 100 department stations mapped out, and about half of them even have the apparatus assigned to each station listed there. What do ya'll think?


Disclaimer 1: Most of the information seen here was readily obtainable on department websites or through basic Google searches (and some cheap "common sense" searching). ;)


Disclaimer 2: Not all the information on this map is 100% accurate, nor is it endorsed/sanctioned/verified by any of the agencies listed. If you have any corrections, well, tell me. ;D

I've begun moving on to other cities, as I find this quite interesting (it's a nerd thing). Here's a half dozen other places that I've managed to get mapped out:


Topeka/Lawrence - Topeka & Lawrence Fire Station Locations - Google Maps


Wichita - Wichita Metro Fire/EMS Stations - Google Maps


Denver - Denver Metro Area Fire Stations - Google Maps


Colorado Springs - Colorado Springs Fire Stations - Google Maps


Oklahoma City - Oklahoma City Metro Fire Stations - Google Maps


Let me know what you all think.

It is addictive, that's for sure. I did one, and didn't want to stop there. So the project rolls on. My next areas are to finish up Colorado Springs, Oklahoma City, and Denver (there's a few holes), and then move on to Tulsa, Omaha, St. Louis, Chicago, and then places like Houston, Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth, etc.


Maybe I'll eventually get to FDNY. THAT would be a big-ass map.
 
I finished a map that I've literally been trying to work on and finish for months, but the availability of information out there was just way too scarce to get anywhere. Then I remembered that each county in the country has some level of GIS mapping with at last major edifices listed/mapped out.


Here's Honolulu City/County Fire Department on the whole island: Oahu Fire Stations - Google Maps

If you're looking for another county one to do, drop me a PM! :)

We'll see. Right now I'm on hiatus because I've got so many damn projects going on that I can't hardly keep track of 'em, but there's a list of places I want to get as I branch out. St. Louis, Omaha, Des Moines, Tulsa, Lincoln, and Columbia, MO are all on my list, and in the future, I'm sure I'll hit up Chicago, Minneapolis, etc.


I figure in a few years, I may have every major city in the U.S. covered, plus the smaller metros and cities.
