ArtificalIntelligenceforEmergencyHeader.png Clarity Amidst Chaos – How AI is Enhancing Emergency Preparedness
SF Bay area Emergency Managers and One Concern have joined together to provide the power of AI to California emergency responders.

‘Seismic Concern’ uses artificial intelligence and state of art earthquake engineering research to provide emergency managers with damage maps and statistics in the immediate aftermath of a catastrophic earthquake, enhancing situational awareness required for rescue and relief efforts. Moreover, through the ‘Seismic Concern Training Module’, emergency operations centers will be able to design and train on realistic scenarios based on actual simulations to get a real sense of the situation. One Concern will demonstrate their capability to predict the extent of damage to personal residences, commercial and government building as well as other critical infrastructure in the immediate aftermath of an earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area Region, as well as the capability of the training/simulation module to aid resiliency and mitigation efforts. SF DEM will demonstrate how One Concern’s technology will enhance immediate response and recovery efforts and will use their simulations to quantify mitigation efforts and develop accurate scenarios for emergency responders.

LeadOakland.jpg Constituent-led Public Data and IoT Utility for Urban Health Housing and Environmental Hazard Management
  • Build upon a Smart City blueprint, playbook, and coalition of Oakland communities to convene, share, and learn what’s possible with data, IoT, and Smart Cities then use that knowledge to co-create projects and programs germane to each constituency, micro-community, and individual sets of needs
  • Leverage the coalitions to hunt and gather data for addition to a shared Public Data & IoT Utility to be operated and run as a shared data service for micro-communities to build political will, businesses to grow, and collective voice to be used to address micro- or meta-level risks and opportunities
  • Leverage people, processes, and technology to collectively address issues of unsafe Bay Area Housing Environments to co-create inclusive solutions and investment opportunities to resolve the housing crisis and improve health region-wide
  • Focus on short and long-term positive outcomes associated with sustainable Smart City solutions, and maintain a cadence of speed and success delivering projects to address current issues for constituents, businesses, and government agencies generated by past programs, policies, and investments like failing infrastructure, legacy lead poisoning, and institutionalized racism
Power-grid standard.jpg Microgrids Sustainable resilient mobile power for disasters
Deploy mobile, rechargeable power units throughout city departments to intelligently manage and measure energy usage. This can result in reduced energy costs through time shifting consumption from daytime to nighttime and peak shaving to lower demand charges. The mobile chargers would be remotely monitored and available to be deployed in the immediate aftermath of a catastrophe.
  • FreeWire Technologies will demonstrate their capability to deploy and remotely monitor mobile chargers, while also delivering and quantifying energy savings.
  • San Francisco Department of Emergency Management will demonstrate how mobile charging units will enhance response and recovery efforts in the wake of a catastrophe.
Service Guide.jpg Risk Assessment and Prioritization in the Smart City Cyber Resilience Planning Process
This use case summarizes an engagement between a GCTC Action Cluster member, Adaptable Security Corp (ADA), and a California municipality, focusing on how the risk management process, with a particular focus on risk assessment and prioritization, played a critical role in the overall cyber resilience planning process. The content covered in this use case primarily aligns with the Prepare, Select, Assess, and Monitor steps of the RMF.
Urban Mobility Transit Portal 511.jpeg Urban Mobility Transit Portal for 511 org
The goal was to build a new site to meet the growing demands of urban mobility commuters in the San Francisco Bay Area. should be the ultimate destination for commuters to plan their route to have the easiest time getting to their destination. should also incorporate all of the available data across transit agencies and systems into this single destination.
