Large scale disasters such as the September 11 attacks, Hurricane Katrina and even the recent earth coast earthquake continue to reiterate the vital need to anticipate the occurrence of natural and man-made disasters.
Annual planning and implementation of exercises help government and federal aid agencies prepare for what’s next. Building capacities of federal grant, personnel and logistical resources lessen the severity and impact of disasters after they occur.

Risk visualization allows government or response agencies to forecast the effects of potential disasters according to regional trends and atmospheric factors.
