Company Partners with NAPSG Foundation to Ensure First Responders are Fully Prepared to Save Lives, Limit Property Damage During Emergency Incidents
Michael Baker International, and the National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation, have announced a contract with the US DHS S&T Directorate to develop national guidelines and a cutting-edge solution that provides first responders with real-time information prior to and during emergencies.
Michael Baker and NAPSG Foundation’s cutting-edge emergency response guidelines and solution will address the need for timely, reliable, and accessible sources of preparedness and operational information that local decision makers can rely upon during flooding events.
In many recent flooding incidents, the lack of accurate and reliable information contributed to inefficient emergency response during deadly flash floods, dam failures and traffic gridlock.

During these scenarios, public safety officials faced the challenge of turning data into actionable information for first responders to improve their ability to aid those in need.
