Geographic information systems (GIS) technology is a valuable tool when it comes to asset and emergency management response planning. This paper outlines the procedures involved in using GIS to effectively support the City of Montclair, California‟s incident response procedures by organizing their map resources into formats that are easy to use and easily accessible. GIS tools were be used to create a map book as well as a custom search tool that are user friendly, readily updated, more data rich, and more accurate than the City‟s existing system. This tool gives emergency managers a greater understanding of their surroundings and infrastructure with which to plan their responses.
