Department of Military Affairs & Public Safety WV Office of Emergency Services Primary GIS Missions: Support Emergency Operations Partner with GIS Data Producers Collect Homeland Security GIS Data Establish a Geospatial Chain-of-Command Implement GIS Solutions with DMAPS Agencies
Major Flooding Large Scale Fires HazMat Incidents Counter-Terrorism Emergency Operations Major Flooding Large Scale Fires HazMat Incidents Counter-Terrorism
Partner with GIS Data Producers WVU GIS Technical Center Army & Air National Guard Emergency Medical Services Dept. Environmental Protection Dept. Health & Human Resources
Homeland Security GIS Data Electric Power Facilities Communication Hubs Water & Sewer Treatment Hazadous Materials Facilities Schools, Hospitals, and Government buildings EMS & Law Enforcement Resources Transportation (Bridges, Ports,Locks)
Emergency Services GIS Goals Production of on-demand situation maps for emergency mgmt. Plume modeling in ArcView 8.3 using SAICs CATs/Jace software Produce historical GIS data for Flood Mitigation programs. Support large scale forest fire modeling capabilities for response efforts, and resource management. Support state and federal agencies with GIS products and solutions. Secure federal funding for data generation & maintenance.
DMAPS GIS Initiatives DHS/NGA – Establish chain-of-command for GIS data. WVU Tech Center – Partnered with OES for improved critical infrastructure data sets. State Police – Have criminal incident data that is GIS ready. Fire Marshal – Are acquiring a mapping extension for fire incidents. Army Guard – Implementing GIS for counter-drug and counter- terrorism programs that tie into DHS initiatives. County OES – Have critical GIS layers accessible via E-Team software for state-wide emergency response. National Weather Service – Model flooding incidents based upon stream and rain gauge reporting to permit a real-time model.
