Emergency Planning and Response with Census Bureau and NOAA Resources

In this webinar, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will educate you on their latest hurricane preparedness recommendations.

You will also learn how your community can prepare for emergencies with free statistics from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) and Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics Origin Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) datasets. We will demonstrate how to access statistics for custom geographies using online data tools including OnTheMap for Emergency Management, OnTheMap, and American FactFinder.
