Purpose Statement

The purpose of the IAEM-USA Emerging Technology Committee is to research, evaluate, and make recommendations on new and innovative technology as they pertain to emergency management processes and to disseminate best practices to the broader emergency management community.

About the Crisis Technology Center

The Crisis Technology Center is a service provided at the IAEM Annual Conference in the EMEX Exhibit Hall by members of the Emerging Technology Committee. The Crisis Technology Center (CTC) is a networking lounge and technology lab where emergency managers can go to learn about and discuss emerging technology, new media communications, and best practices relating to technological advances in EOC management, social media, and more. The CTC is staffed by technology experts from virtually every level of government, the private sector, higher education, and not-for-profit industries; affectionately called “Techsperts,” these IAEM Emerging Technology Committee members can provide the support, resources and information you’ve been looking for when faced with incorporating new technologies into your organization.
