Creating safer, less vulnerable communities in "the new normal" requires a modern approach to understanding threats and hazards that are more complex, costly and devastating than ever before. When a disaster strikes, knowing what you need and how to find it can be the key factor that saves lives, resources and critical infrastructure. Esri can help you with all phases of emergency management, from developing mitigation plans to managing limited resources in the midst of chaos and prioritizing recovery efforts once the dust settles.
These phases are Mitigate, Prepare, Respond and Recover.
Address the short-term impacts of an incident, maintain situational awareness, conduct initial damage assessments, and inform key stakeholders and the general public.
