Presented by: California Earthquake Clearinghouse, Cal OES, City of Walnut Creek, City of Berkeley, CA National Guard, NAPSG Foundation, FEMA, DHS, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and NCRIC
This session will focus on helping local first responder agencies use and share spatial incident response data with other local agencies and with regional, state and federal agencies in California. The focus will be “How to share data and to make maps for information in my agency and for decision support”.
Software applications (both desktop and mobile) and procedures to share incident response related data in a secure environment have already been developed as a result of several federal DHS initiatives and state efforts. In California, these tools, data, and procedures have been successfully demonstrated during recent California Earthquake Clearinghouse exercises held in 2012 and 2013.
This session will share results from those exercises and will train participants in the use of state and federally-developed emergency response tools, data and resources, which will advance your region’s ability to prepare for and respond to an eventual major natural disaster or event. Participants will learn how to input their own incident information, as well as how to access and combine these compilations of information with their own spatial systems and data
Participation in this interchange will help your agency improve its ability to share incident-related information securely. You will have the opportunity to put these improved skills to the test in the Clearinghouse component of the 2014 OES May Cascadia exercise.
You don’t have to be in CA to participate in the session. It will be made available via the web. There is no cost to attend.
