​TNGIC Members,

​As many of you know a Disaster Response Committee was created at the 2018 TNGIC Annual Conference.  There was an outpouring of positive feedback for this effort. The purpose of the committee is to gather, manage and provide a database of GIS professionals across the state to aid in the event of a disaster or emergency.   A secure survey has been created using RegOnline, and the data will be managed by the Disaster Response Committee and the TNGIC Board.  The hope is this data will be very useful to emergency responders at various levels and make finding GIS help more efficient.  There is more information in the survey link, but if you have questions regarding the data requested or how it will be used please contact Paul Dudley(Paul.Dudley@tn.gov) or Jason Duke(jason_duke@fws.gov).
