The Office of Emergency Management and Communications provides residents of Chicago with prompt and reliable 911 service for police, fire and emergency medical services and coordinates major emergency response. Their enormous and important charter is to manage incidents, coordinate events, operate communications systems, and provide technology, among other forms of support, to protect lives and property in the City of Chicago. And central to all of this is geospatial data. Join us as we welcome Joe Kezon, GIS Manager for the City of Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications on December 5th, while enjoying pizza. Please let me know if you would like to discuss any special accommodations.
