Emsina ACT Emergency Services Agency
Like a demonstration on the latest technologies in mapping used across the emergency services sector? Do you have a smart phone, iPAD or tablet PC and need to know what ‘apps’ to install for use in emergencies? Do you know what mapping services are provided for within your agency?
EMSINA members will be on hand in the ‘EMSINA Spatial Play Pen’ to walk you through the latest in mapping technologies for emergency management. We would like to assist those just starting to navigate the mobile maze who need help with which apps to choose for their smart device such as iPhones, iPAD’s and Android tablets, as well as those interested in what other emergency teams are using – come and see us!
The Emergency Management Spatial Information Network Australia (EMSINA) is now in its 6th year in partnership with the annual AFAC conference in promoting mapping and spatial technologies as an aid to decision making for emergency services workers. In 2015, EMSINA is doing this in two ways: 1) through our booth the ‘EMSINA Spatial Play Pen’ within the Trade Exhibition Hall, and 2) via our hosting of the post conference professional development workshop ‘Mapping and Location technologies – are you up to speed with all the possibilities’.
EMSINA is a vibrant and active group of practitioners in the emergency management sector committed to improving the safety for Australians through the use of sound decision making, supported by spatial information technologies. EMSINA was formed in Canberra on 11 October 2002 and consists of mapping practitioners from all state and territory emergency agencies, as well as Federal Government departments such as Emergency Management Australia, Geoscience Australia, Department of Defence, and the Bureau of Meteorology.
Drop in to see the EMSINA members in the trade Exhibition Hall and watch the hands on demonstrations of the latest technologies in desktop solutions and mobile apps used by emergency organisations across Australia for mapping.
