When a disaster strikes, knowing what you need and how to find it can help you save lives, resources, and critical infrastructure. Join us at the Esri National Security Summit (NSS), July 12-15 at the Hilton Bayfront San Diego, to see learn about the latest geospatial tools and workflows that can help you manage any situation.
We’ve lined up a collection of influential leaders with real stories from the front lines:
- Major General William Reddel, adjutant general, New Hampshire National Guard, will talk about information requirements during an incident and how to improve collaboration between local, state, and federal agencies.
- Jonathon Monken, state director, Illinois Emergency Management Agency, will provide a rundown of CAPSTONE-14, a multistate earthquake exercise.
- David Carabin, director, Boston Regional Intelligence Center, will share some experiences related to the Boston Marathon bombing.
- Staff Sergeant Alain Gagnon, National Operations Centre, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, will discuss GIS for domestic and international police operations.
Once the Plenary wraps up, head over to the National Security Social on Sunday night. It’s a great chance to connect with other folks in the national security space and chat with Esri staff. You’ll need either your NSS badge or your Esri User Conference (UC) badge to enter.
Your Esri National Security Summit registration also gets you into the first two days of the Esri UC. If you’re looking for additional hands-on learning and training, stop by Expo and visit the National Security Showcase. We’ve got a packed schedule of demo theater presentations showcasing the latest tools and techniques for national security, and the popular Operations Platform for Safety/Security (OPS) Center will also be back. The OPS Center is an interactive exhibit that uses security planning for a special event to show how the ArcGIS platform supports national security mission objectives.
Users across the national security spectrum will share best practices across 30 different moderated paper sessions. Esri staff will also host a handful of technical workshops about ArcGIS for emergency management, law enforcement, and fire service. Check out the Public Safety and National Security cheat sheet for a complete schedule of events and activities.
We look forward to hosting you in San Diego. Register today for the Summit.
