When you open the individual incident information, you will generally see additional information on the incident including: the incident type, the time the call was dispatched, the assigned bureau, a rough approximation of the neighborhood name, coordinates, address and a link to take you into Google Maps.
Google Maps is also integrated with the individual incident page and will display below the Additional Information box. This is an interactive map that will allow you to zoom in and out.
LAFD incidents will display a responding unit activity log, which contains a log of the last 35 units history. If you click on the Unit ID of one of the responding units, you’re able to view more information about that apparatus such as the type, the station assigned and the last ten incidents they’ve been dispatched to.
Depending on the incident, LAFD press releases may be available and will be displayed directly below the “Additional Information” box.
CHP logs may also be available and will display towards the bottom of the page.
