From Brenda Martinez
In the third and final installment of this series on how GIS helps modernize public safety operations centers, we will focus on using GIS to support information management and collaboration within and across agencies. To be fully prepared for planned or unplanned critical events, operations staff must work together to achieve shared operational goals. This means connecting with internal and external stakeholders to collaborate and plan so that all are fully prepared. Our panelists will discuss how to stand up an information management hub for creating, managing, and sharing operational plans. Additional GIS tools will help you make resources assignments; collect, edit, and share data from the field; and quickly update and communicate with personnel as situations develop and plans change.
