Fourth PrepTalk video on 'Rapid Mapping of Potential Hazards' released by FEMA and partners (including IAEM)

from IAEM

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and several partner organizations, including IAEM, on Mar. 6 released the fourth video presentation from the inaugural PrepTalks Symposium, Dr. Robert Chen’s “Who’s at Risk? Rapid Mapping of Potential Hazards." Dr. Chen outlined the different ways data mapping can be used to help emergency managers identify those at risk before, during and after a disaster. He demonstrated how geospatial data combined with socioeconomic data gives emergency managers, the news media, and the public a better understanding of what the risk is and the potential associated effects of disasters. Dr. Chen’s presentation, discussion guide, and additional reference materials are now online. PrepTalks are 15-to-20-minute presentations by subject-matter experts and national and international thought leaders, designed to spread new ideas, spark conversation, and promote innovative leadership for the issues confronting emergency managers now, and over the next 20 years. PrepTalks partners include FEMA, IAEM, National Emergency Management Association, National Homeland Security Consortium, and Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security. Please direct any questions to IAEM Communications & Marketing Manager Dawn Shiley. more
