Leveraging Technology to Improve Crisis Response and

Preparedness Decision-Making

Are you and your organization prepared for the next crisis?

Join us to discover how leveraging the capabilities of modern crisis management technologies -- like Geographic Information Systems (GIS) -- can effectively support critical mission workflows and requirements. 


During the symposium, executives, public safety professionals, crisis managers, operations teams, and GIS professionals from all sectors will learn how to:

  • Use crisis management technologies to enhance decision-making;

  • Obtain and configure real-time situational awareness unique to your organization's and leadership’s needs;

  • Identify potentially impacted critical infrastructure and at-risk populations;

  • Develop incident and event action plans;

  • Implement mobile GIS capabilities to share information from the field to command, control, and coordination entities as well as organizational leadership;

  • Track and display real-time locations of key staff, assets, and resources;

  • Create electronic briefings with dynamic maps and dashboards using key indicators;

  • And more!


This event is sponsored by Pepperdine University School of Public Policy and powered by the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM).
