2 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management2 Courses used in GIS Development Introduction to GIS Risk Management Natural Hazards Emergency Management Operations Information Technology in Emergency Management

3 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management3 Introduction to GIS MARPLOT Town Base Map –Layers Town Boundary Tiger Files and Census Data Digitized building data Mass GIS Shape files ArcGIS Town Base Map –Town Boundary –Roadway Data –Emergency Response Sites

4 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management4 Risk Management CAMEO –Load Massachusetts Tier2 data –Expand on town facilities data –Add Hazardous Materials Routes –Linking facilities and routes to MARPLOT Base Map ALOHA –Creating a chemical plume –Simulating a transportation incident –Varying meteorological conditions –Linking the plume to MARPLOT Base Map MARPLOT –Determine population affected by the plume –Determine shelter facilities –Determine evacuation routes

5 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management5 Incident Commander Chemical Spill Incident –Implemented in MMA GIS Laboratory –Resource allocation is a critical function –3 Teams of 7 or 8 players in each class. –Practice runs –3 official runs Standard communication Each student plays an IC chief After Action Report Team competition Risk Management
