  • Global Positioning System

    • Gather data and download to a text file for later use in ArcMap and MARPLOT using DNRGarmin Lab #1

  • MARPLOT

    • Introduction Lab #2

    • Add GPS data Lab #3

      • Edit DNRGarmn text file in EXCEL and Notepad

    • Edit *.mie file to add a new layer Lab #4

      • Export selected information into a *.mie file

      • Change the layer name in the *.mie file using Notepad

      • Import the edited *.mie file

    • Add digitized information Lab #5

      • Digitize in Cartalinx into ArcInfo generate file

      • Edit generate file and imnport into MARPLOT

Introduction to GIS

MMA Emergency Management

Massachusetts Maritime AcademyMarine Safety and Environmental Protection Department

  • ALOHA

    • Fundamentals Lab #1

      • Investigate plume shape and size on meteorology and type of chemical release

  • MARPLOT

    • Link ALOHA plume to MARPLOT Lab #2

      • Generate plume and attach to a general MARPLOT location

      • Select plume and search for roads affected by plume.

    • Attach ArcMap data to MARPLOT Lab #3

      • Download GIS data in state plane coordinates (schools and hospitals)

      • Convert data to Latitude /Longitude in Cartalinx

      • Save as a Generate file and import into MARPLOT

      • Select plume and extract schools and hospitals within 30 miles

  • LandView

    • Investigate total population affected by a release Lab #4

      • Attach LandView to MARPLOT

      • Turn on Census Block layer

      • Select plume and extract Census Blocks affected by plume

      • Determine the population affected by the release

Risk Assessment

MMA Emergency Management

  • CAMEO

    • Introduction to CAMEO Lab #1

      • Database fundamentals

      • Chemical Searches

      • Adding data

    • Adding Facilities and Routes Lab #2

      • Locate facilities and shipping routes in a town

      • Add facility and route data

    • Link CAMEO to MARPLOT Lab #3

      • Link facilities and routes to MARPLOT locations

Hazardous Materials Management

  • Introduction to LandView Lab #1

    • Introduction using LandView tutorials. Become familiar with:

      • Demographic data

      • TIGER files

      • EPA data

      • USGS GNIS data

    • Become familiar with NOAA Environmental Sensitivity data

  • Hazardous Materials Release Lab #2

    • Create a facility in CAMEO

    • Attach the facility to a location in MARPLOT

    • Use ALOHA to generate a chemical plume

    • Link the chemical plume to the facility in MARPLOT

    • Select the plume in MARPLOT and search for:

      • Block groups for population demographics

      • Possible shelter within 50 miles of the plume

      • Possible triage locations within 20 miles of the plume

      • Environmentally sensitive areas affected by the plume

      • Possible evacuation routes

    • For each selected component, export to a new layer.

      • Export to a *.mie file

      • Edit the file to change the layer

      • Import the edited file

  • Radiological Release Lab #3

    • Same as above using HPAC to generate a radiological plume

Technological Hazards

  • IT in Emergency Management

    • CAMEO/MARPLOT/ALOHA/Landview

      • Build an emergency management system for a specified town or city

        • Obtain and map the data for HazMat sites government buildings and other significant structures.

        • Census Blocks for population demographics

        • Possible shelter locations

        • Possible triage locations

        • Environmentally sensitive areas affected by the plume

        • Possible evacuation routes

    • Create an evacuation plan for a specified release

Information Technology in Emergency Management

MMA Emergency Management

  • Exercise Design

    • Develop an exercise and test a scenario based on the exercise to include:

      • Scenario Description and events

      • Role player and stakeholder descriptions

      • Fundamental Objectives

        • Clarify Roles and Responsibilities

        • Practice working together to respond to an emergency

        • Evaluate current emergency plans and protocols

        • Anticipate the specific demands on the public health system during a mass casualty event

        • Understand the role of local, state, and federal agencies, and the resources available to local communities

      • Testing protocol may include:

        • Use of the Mass Maritime Emergency Management Simulator

        • Mapping systems

          • CAMEO/MARPLOT/ALOHA

          • HPAC
