A Modern Approach to Emergency Management Many emergency management agencies base preparedness activities on responses to past incidents. Every incident contains lessons that response teams can use to better prepare for the next event. However, relying on past incidents alone to guide planning can leave emergency managers underprepared. Today's severe weather events are more intense, wildfires have become faster moving, public health crises are impacting our daily lives and civil disturbances have grown more complex. Emergency managers need to change the approach to planning and preparedness to better respond to these trends. By digitally transforming the emergency management toolkit, managers can better connect to information—and to each other—for faster response. Digital transformation may seem daunting. Fortunately, a location- based cloud solution for emergency management makes the task of modernizing workflows easier than one might imagine. Esri Canada's Emergency Management Operations Solution, built on Esri's ArcGIS platform, jump-starts modernization initiatives. The solution contains data, tools, and apps for intelligent operations management during blue skies and gray. It helps emergency operations centers (EOC) coordinate faster response by rapidly showing information for smart decision-making. This e-book explores use cases from real emergency management operations. It describes successful deployments from agencies that use location data, the power of maps, and Esri Geospatial Cloud technology to gain better situational awareness. 2
