% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s First Responders Group wants to hear from first responders about their information needs before and during a flood emergency. Answers are sought on the following questions:

1.     What data and information must you always have at your fingertips to create and maintain effective flood response plans with your emergency management partners?
2.     Road conditions, weather predictions, power status, and status of communications are top-tier elements of information essential to any hazard. When you are certain that a flood emergency will occur, what else do you need, when do you need it, and how do you need it?
3.     What information do you need to have in hand when trying to motivate community residents to either evacuate or take protective action as a flood emergency nears?

The National Conversation is intended to bring together everyone to play a role in shaping the future of homeland security technology. This means responders, operational users, citizens, academia and industry.
