ESRI Partners with FEMA for Project Impact; Now You Can Create Your Own Online Hazard Maps!

Through the Project Impact initiative, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and ESRI have formed a National Partnership in part aimed at providing multi-hazard maps and information to U.S. residents, business owners, schools, community groups, and local governments via the Internet. The information is intended to assist in building disaster resistant communities across the country by sharing geographic knowledge about local hazards.

Maps can be created based on Zip Code, City and State, or Congressional District. Select from hazard types — Flood, Earthquake, Hail Storm, Hurricane, Tornado, and Wind Storm — to help you determine the disaster risks in your community.

Be Flood Alert:
Visit the National Flood Insurance Program Site

According to the Federal Insurance Administration, although flood insurance is relatively inexpensive, most Americans neglect to purchase protection. Only about one-quarter of the homes in areas most vulnerable are insured against flood loss. In those areas, flooding is 26 times more likely to occur than a fire during the course of a typical 30-year mortgage. More than 19,000 communities have agreed to stricter zoning and building measures to control floods, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Residents in these communities are entitled to purchase flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a program FEMA oversees.

A Working Model:
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Business Continuity Plan

Massachusetts Institute of Technology — a coeducational, privately endowed research university — is dedicated to advancing knowledge and educating students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century. The Institute has more than 900 faculty and nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and is organized into five Schools:

  • Architecture and Planning
  • Engineering
  • Humanities
  • Arts
  • Social Sciences, Management, and Science
and the Whitaker College of Health Sciences and Technology. Within these are twenty-seven degree-granting departments, programs, and divisions. In addition, a great deal of research and teaching takes place in interdisciplinary programs, laboratories, and centers whose work extends beyond traditional departmental boundaries. The board of trustees, known as the Corporation, consists of about 75 leaders in higher education, business and industry, science, engineering and other professions. MIT is located on 153.8 acres that extend more than a mile along the Cambridge side of the Charles River Basin.
