Speakers will address interoperability in the emergency management context and discuss real-world examples of when these Best Practices have been implemented to improve the efficiency of response operations. From the recent flooding in West Virginia to the largest full-scale exercise in US Coast Guard maritime history, this presentation will give participants a wide range of scenarios in which emergency data communication has been implemented in the field to great success.
CAP Implementation Workshop, August 23-24, Bangkok, Thailand http://preparecenter.org/resources/cap-workshop-2016
IJIS Institute Mid-year Briefing, September 13-15, Arlington, VA
Next EIC Meeting:
September 21, 2016 2-4pm EDT
Our next meeting will be an examination of the newly created EAS codes by the FCC. They are: “Extreme Wind Warning (EWW),” “Storm Surge Watch (SSA),” and “Storm Surge Warning (SSW)” – so that communities can receive more specific and relevant alerts during hurricanes or other severe weather. The updated rules require EAS equipment manufacturers to integrate the codes into new equipment and will also enable EAS participants to update their existing equipment in advance of next year’s (2017) Atlantic hurricane season.
The EIC will take August off – Stay Safe and enjoy the Summer!
