Understanding threats in the modern world

Creating safer, less vulnerable communities in "the new normal" requires a modern approach to understanding threats and hazards that are more complex, costly, and devastating than ever before. Agencies around the world rely on geographic information every day to plan for and mitigate complex threats and hazards and coordinate response and recovery efforts when disasters and emergencies occur. With location intelligence and emergency management solutions from Esri, you'll develop a deeper understanding of risk in the new normal and maintain real-time data insights to help you anticipate your next move.


The frequency and intensity of emergencies today are unlike anything seen before. Historic data alone won't shed light on how to prepare for future events. To effectively plan, mitigate, and reduce risks, emergency management professionals must incorporate real-time data, big data, and other critical data feeds into their analysis. Data-driven insights help communities effectively prepare for worst-case scenarios. Explore emergency management operations tools for visualizing and analyzing risk, performing real-time analytics, managing mitigation projects, and communicating with the public. 


In today's new normal, emergency management professionals must become more agile and informed at all points during response efforts. Successfully planning for and responding to growing threats requires agility and effective communication throughout an event. Explore tools for robust situational awareness, rapid impact analysis, deploying resources, and communicating with the public. 


Recovery efforts can take years, and it's critical to avoid missteps that delay progress. It's essential to provide emergency management professionals with tools to prioritize work and deliver on every recovery dollar invested in a community. Explore tools for better documentation and management of debris removal, distribution of resources, and transparent recovery monitoring.
