Introduction to Public Safety

Improve government operations and enhance services provided to the public.

Public Safety agencies use location-based data and technology to understand the impact of threats and hazards and enhance response and recovery efforts. Data-driven insight helps organizations gain deeper understanding and mitigate the impact of incidents or major emergency events.

The frequency, complexity, and impact of natural hazards and human threats is increasing. The lack of planning capacity and response agility along with limited access to technology and technical staff make it difficult to use technology to minimize the impact on communities.

ArcGIS Solutions for Public Safety reduce the time it takes to deploy location-based solutions in your organization. Leverage your geographic information and the investment your organization has made in ArcGIS to understand threats and hazards and create a safer community.

Emergency Management

Emergency Management agencies provide decision makers with relevant information regarding the nature of hazards and the status of appropriate response activities. Any information latency delays response efforts and may result in additional loss of life and property. Use ArcGIS Solutions to become more resilient, develop preparedness plans, respond to emergencies, and inform internal and external stakeholders.
