With support from the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate (DHS S&T) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP), CUSEC has developed a series of templates for information sharing and field reporting. These templates are built on the ArcGIS Online Platform, widely used and among state/local government Emergency Management practitioners.
The CUSEC Apps and Field Data Collection Capabilities highlighted below are provided through the CUSEC Regional Information Sharing Platform (RISP), a regional information sharing hub for CUSEC Member States and partners to share data, web applications and other resources.
The CUSEC State Geologist Field Reporting Template was developed to modernize a post-disaster reporting process for state geologists, and enable the information collected to be seamlessly shared to state emergency operation centers, federal partners, and neighboring states.
The State and Local Community Lifeline Reporting Template provides state and local agencies a lightweight, easy-to-use capability to track and share the status of FEMA’s seven Community Lifelines.
The CUSEC Critical Infrastructure Template provides a model for states to align their Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CIKR) data to FEMA’s seven Community Lifelines and CISA’s 16 critical infrastructure sectors to help monitor infrastructure status across a state, develop CIKR status reports, and to prioritize infrastructure to support response, recovery, and mitigation efforts.
The CUSEC Mitigation Action Tracking Template is designed as an easy-to-use tool for emergency managers to track mitigation actions* and mitigation pre-applications for state hazard mitigation grant programs. Planning teams may use the dashboard for education, training, and plan maintenance.
The CUSEC Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Tracking Template allows users to track and visualize PPE status in hospitals and other medical centers using Esri’s Survey123 form and Dashboard. The PPE template can be used to assess available PPE inventory, burn-rate, and forecasted shortfall for various emergency response scenarios, and can be customized depending on the user’s needs.
