FEMA Project Impact


FEMA Project Impact


Through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Project Impact initiative, FEMA and the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) have formed a national partnership aimed in part at providing multi-hazard maps and information to US residents, business owners, schools, community groups, and local governments via the Internet. The information provided via the ESRI Web site is intended to assist the building of disaster-resistant communities across the country by sharing geographic knowledge about local hazards. This Web site allows users to create online hazard maps for which they can specify both location (by ZIP code, city, or congressional district) and the hazards to be shown. It also directs users to other sources of information, both on the Web and in the real world.
