Know Your Zone, Monmouth County’s Coastal Flood Evacuation Campaign
Track: Disaster and Emergency Management
Authors: Meghan Leavey
Effectively messaging risk is an integral part of the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management’s Operational Plan. This year a coastal flood evacuation map appendix was developed to be included in this plan to provide a coastal flood event decision making tool. NOAA storm surge data was incorporated into the appendix & aggregated to develop tiered coastal evacuation zones. This layer was then published as a map service & is the used in the Know Your Zone awareness campaign GIS application.
