At NAPSG Foundation, our mission is to equip the public safety community with the knowledge, skills, and resources to apply geospatial technology to enhance preparedness and build a more resilient nation. We do that through a number of programs, and we invite you to reach out and engage with us in this mission.
As the complexity and frequency of events increase, so does the need to increase your capacity to mitigate, prepare, respond, and recover. To become more resilient, your organization needs the knowledge, skills, and resources to apply GIS technologies that are essential to informing mission critical decision making.
Done right, your organization is ready to answer the call — you are better prepared and more resilient. At the NAPSG Foundation, supporting you in this effort is our primary mission. Consider us a trusted partner dedicated to building your long term capacity and providing enhanced geospatial support when you need it most.
