The Louisiana Hazard Information Portal (LaHIP) is a joint project between the National Incident Management Systems and Advanced Technologies (NIMSAT) Institute of the University of Louisiana, Lafayette and the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP). The LaHIP project as two primary components, the first of which is designed to serve as a public education and outreach tool to complement GOHSEP’s Get a Game Plan and Educate to Mitigate initiatives by allowing the general public to access hazard related information based on current SHELDUS and NCDC data sets. The other component allows local emergency managers to conveniently collect, store and retrieve incident related data to facilitate emergency and mitigation planning and provide supporting data for grant applications and disaster declarations. The objective of this presentation is to build awareness of this project, and solicit feedback on how it may be improved.
