1 FEMA Higher Education Conference June 2011 GIS in Emergency Management

2 5/5/2009MMA Emergency Management2 Massachusetts Maritime Academy Founded in 1890 One of nine Massachusetts State Colleges Originally for education of merchant mariners Marine Engineering Marine Transportation Expanded programs into Marine Environmental Protection Facilities Engineering Emergency Management International Maritime Business Technical Educational Programs Regimental Life Style

3 GIS in Emergency Management EM Curriculum components using GIS Introduction to GIS (Sophomore) Risk Management (Junior) Natural Hazards (Junior) Emergency Management Operations (Senior) IT in Emergency Management (Senior) 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management3

4 Introduction to GIS ArcGIS Minimum Essential Data Set (MEDS) map Town Base Map (projected and geographic coordinates) Town Boundary (selected from the state town map) Roadway Data Public Safety Sites Population ( blocks and 3 types of block group populations) USGS GNIS Infrastructure Aerial Photographs Hillshaded Digital Elevation Maps GPS data (electrical tansformers, buildings, gas lines, etc.) 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management4

5 County Hillshade 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management5 Introduction to GIS Maps Newburyport Massachusetts Spanish speaking Aerial Photograph Flood Data Flood Zones Income less than $10000

6 Risk Management Hazardous materials transportation spill simulation Using ALOHA and ArcGIS Creating a chemical plume Varying meteorological conditions Linking the plume to the ArcGIS MEDS Base Map Map Triage location, Incident Command Post, Decon area Investigate Population effected Investigate Road Closures Add as a component to the Risk Management Plan 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management6

7 Aloha Propane Toxic Vapor Plume

8 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management8 Aloha Propane Toxic Vapor Plume

11 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management11 Road Closures Newburyport Massachusetts

12 Natural Hazards ArcGIS MEDS Base Map Flooding Scenario Apportion population to census block level Attach HAZUS daytime population distribution Evaluate population vulnerability at census block level Determine evacuation criteria Locate shelter Determine evacuation routes and shelter requirements Add as a component to the Risk Management Plan 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management12

13 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management13 Newburyport Massachusetts Population effected by floods

14 5/8/2009MMA Emergency Management14 HAZUS level 1 Hurricane and Earthquake scenario Probabilistic hurricane and earthquake Damage assessment Mitigation Compare with and without mitigation Develop white paper to community leaders illustrating cost/benefits of hurricane mitigation Farsite 4 GIS Wildfire Simulator Perform tutorial Wildfire simulation using spatial analysis Natural Hazards
