PDC's advanced modeling capabilities and mapped products helped accurately anticipate the nature and extent of impacts from Dorian so that we could protect the most at-risk communities and coordinate life-saving humanitarian relief. These products were used daily in planning and public outreach, and in briefing national officials, including the Prime Minister, to prepare effectively. In addition, PDC team members gathered, analyzed, and disseminated critical information that helped organize crucial emergency support functions with the responsibility for evacuation
and relief, public health and human services, search and rescue, and the restoration of critical public infrastructure.

Earthquake & Tsunami Program Manager
Seismic Hazards Branch, California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (2019)

Scott Griffin
Camp H. M. Smith, Halawa, HI 96701, USADeputy, C4 Engagements and Interoperablity, J65 U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (2019)
