Virtual Training: Preparing Smart & Safe Communities for the Unknown

Preparing your community for the unknown takes more than technology. Smart and safe communities measure their maturity in several areas to understand deficiencies, and they build a support system around these deficiencies to address unforeseen challenges.

On Wednesday, May 31st, NAPSG Foundation, the Florida Division of Emergency Management, and the Texas Emergency GIS Response Team (EGRT) hosted a virtual training on the following topics:

  • Applying standardized resource typing and mission ready packaging templates for qualifying and rostering GIS response personnel and teams in your agency. 
  • Accessing tools you can use to assess and measure your agency’s geospatial maturity, serving as a starting point for prioritizing GIS investments to achieve the greatest outcomes.
  • Learning about other key resources and tools available to you and your agency to help you get started and expand your successful use of GIS across options.
