How do you deploy your emergency resources? Are you using a cookie-cutter approach or are you looking at the risks and hazards and deploying your resources using that information? Is your emergency preparedness plan designed for resilience and recovery while protecting the safety of your responders?

A new concept in the United States – Community Risk Reduction – is proving invaluable in response to emergencies and disasters. Hear from several pilot communities as we discuss the concepts of CRR and how to use Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to better inform your emergency preparedness.
