GIS for Emergency Services

GIS is an essential technology for all phases of emergency management: planning, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. 
Thousands of local, state and federal government agencies from around the world use the world leading ArcGIS software each year to minimise the impact of disasters on lives and property.  
From modelling potential disasters and maximising readiness to co-ordinating response and recovery efforts, the application of GIS has cemented itself as a critical component in emergency management.
