Tried looking at the crime map on the Police Web site:
Got the following response--
Duplicate headers received from server
The response from the server contained duplicate headers. This problem is generally the result of a misconfigured website or proxy. Only the website or proxy administrator can fix this issue.
Error 349 (net::ERR_RESPONSE_HEADERS_MULTIPLE_CONTENT_DISPOSITION): Multiple Content-Disposition headers received. This is disallowed to protect against HTTP response splitting attacks.
In the real world, it's customary to actually test links, and new software, before announcing to the public.
I'm getting the map just fine. Green dots, red dots and all.
Still getting an error response.
Only the site web administrator can explain what is going on.
George had a great song for those who are offended by a utility using facebook or public agency reaching out to connect with new media.... or any of the other griping, moaning and *****ing on some of these posts....
Map works for me, wahhhhh-wahhhhh, and I know how sweet life can be, wahhhhh-wahhhhh....
Opens okay on iPad, however:
According to the Police Department chart, our fair town has been renamed "Palo Atlo".
It works fine for me.
I wish PAPD would mention that we don't want vigilantes with guns patrolling our streets - just sensible precautions and neighbors keeping an eye open for unusual unneighborly behavior and reporting it.
While this is a nice first step, it's not even state-of-the-art. For several years now, San Mateo County has been a client of a web-based service that tracks all of the on-going police/fire/EMS activities going on in the county:
Palo Alto has been treating its residents/businesses and guests pretty much like potted plants for decades. It's very doubtful that we will see the Palo Alto fire/police/EMS offering this information like San Mateo County does any time soon.
I also have the duplicate headers message. Google Chrome is my server. Maybe that helps.
Google Chrome is the culprit. It has problems with PDFs when posted in the format used by the city.
Palo Alto Fire incidents have been availible on Web Link for years...

However, I've been using Chrome since the beginning, and this is the first time I've ever seen this problem with all of the .pdf files that the City has posted.
Wonder if anyone in the City's IT department are aware of this problem?

This link brings up San Mateo County cities (use stations selectors).
Are you sure that Palo Alto has been subscribing to this service for years? When did it start subscribing? (East Palo Alto is on this web-site, BTW.)
How can I see Palo Alto fire/ems incidents?
On the FireDispatch.com web site there is a dialog box in the upper right hand corner. Click on it and you will see a list of all of the FD's that subscribe and Palo Alto is on the list.. they have been on there since 2005.
nice to see 99 % marching down your streets! couldnt keep reality away from sillygone valley!
99 hit the wrong thread here. Try again.
I do wish the city used a more standard way to show the map (such as overlays on Google Maps) instead of the incredibly slow, unwieldy PDF file that also doesn't work on Chrome.

Right you are. Thanks for the help.

Hmmm .. a quick check of the Palo Alto Fire Department web site does not make any mention of Palo Alto's fire/EMS dispatches being tracked by FireDispatch.com. Since this is a reasonable way to proving up-to-the-minute information about the Fire Dept's. activities, you'd think the Fire Department would want to tell people about it.. such as hanging a link on the main page of their web site.
So .. they have more-or-less done the right thing .. and then not informed the public about it. Reinforces my point about the City's treating its residents as "potted plants".
What's really needed is a web-site that allows pictures and videos to be shown of the active on-going activities, when such visuals are available, follow-up information posted, and cumulative information about the individual call-outs and year-to-date wrap-ups of department activities made available, and downloadable.
All of this takes money, time and a commitment to transparency that we have not seen in the Palo Alto public safety departments--even though this year we are funding them at/about $60M.
Again .. thanks for the information about FireDispatch.com.
