|NG 9-1-1 Addressing
Crises occur regardless of agency preparation. Crises take the form of natural and human-made disasters. While each event has different procedures, one common denominator in every plan is the need to communicate or respond to the appropriate group(s) (i.e., police, faculty/staff, media, etc.). In the event that a crisis occurs, a prompt and effective response will reduce trauma, bring order to chaos, and can even be the determining factor between life and death. The issue surrounding effective response is the management of MSAG, ALI, and GIS databases. These databases, when synchronized and managed effectively, will supply the information needed to provide timely emergency response and support; save time, money, and energy implementing new Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) systems; improve routing potential; and ensure your organization is better prepared for NG9-1-1 (Next Generation 911).

For over 20 years, PWA has acted as a service bureau for county, state and federal natural resources departments, forest industry and agricultural clients to provide aerial photography. PWA has developed unique applications of aerial photography to produce products, otherwise not available, to optimize management. These products provide clients more current data using cost-effective methods that allow for more efficient and effective management. PWA’s aircraft, with camera bay, is used to fly specialized small (35mm) and medium (70mm) format aerial photography for vegetation or natural resource monitoring and analysis. This photography is utilized as an alternative to or supplemental to the more cost-prohibitive large format (9” x9”) imagery. These photos can be taken using black and white, natural color, or color-infrared film (Click for example) or in digital format (Click for example).
