Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

NAPSG's mission is to equip emergency management and public safety with the knowledge, skills, and resources to apply decision-support technology and data in enhancing preparedness and building a more resilient nation. Our vision is to have a nation of emergency responders and leaders equipped with the knowledge and skills in applying technology and data to change the outcome for survivors.

NAPSG Foundation fulfills its mission by providing education and training through live workshops, regional summits, hands-on exercises, and virtual trainings. Areas of expertise include the development of tools such as standard operating guides, implementation guidance, symbol sets, templates, and other resources at no cost nationwide.

All of our programs are driven and led by local, state, and tribal practitioners. We are the only organization dedicated to advancing the use of geospatial technology and information-sharing with a membership network of over 6,500 practitioners nationwide.

NAPSG Foundation has long-standing partnerships with government agencies, other nonprofits, and technology providers dedicated to providing solutions for public safety. We also have Regional Leadership Teams organized around FEMA regions and working Groups' ongoing expertise on numerous priority issues and programs. Practitioner leadership and involvement are the cornerstones of our mission and objectives. After all, emergencies start at the local level.

* Provide public safety leaders with the knowledge and tools necessary to apply geospatial technology and data in decision-making.

* Enable emergency responders and leaders to integrate geospatial technology and data throughout their planning, exercises, training, and operations.

* Facilitate collaboration between emergency responders and GIS practitioners to aid in operationalizing technology and data.

* Build the capacity for GIS practitioners to share information and manage geospatial
systems that support the delivery of all 31 core capabilities.

* Align operational needs and policy requirements with the innovation and capabilities available through the private sector.
