Know where a hazardous event will occur
To understand where a hazardous event will occur and how the community can best prepare to protect lives and livelihoods, requires a location-based understanding of the environment. Location intelligent disaster preparedness helps communities better prepare and take anticipatory action to manage hazardous events. ArcGIS provides tools and systems to monitor known hazards and forecast events, create location-specific early warning systems and alerting platforms, and identify potential shelters and safe evacuation routes.
