Abstract

Purpose – The fire and crime incident datasets were requested and collected from two Philippine regional agencies (i.e., the Bureau of Fire Protection and the Philippine National Police). The datasets were used to initially analyze and map both fire and crime incidents within the province of Pampanga for a specific time frame.

Method – Several data preparation, normalization, and data cleaning steps were implemented to properly map and identify patterns within the datasets.

Results – The initial results also indicate the leading causes of fire and crimes are rubbish and acts against property. Fires mostly occur during the dry season in the province. Crime is particularly high during December, and most of the fire and crime incidents occur during the time when people are most active.

Conclusion - The dataset was able to present the temporal characteristics of the fire and crime incidents that occurred in the province of Pampanga.

Recommendations - Merge the existing dataset with the other datasets from other related agencies to get a bigger picture and produce more objective results that could be used for decision-making.
