Narrative: This webinar will utilize Computer-Aided Management of Emergency Operations (CAMEO) software, Areal Locations of Hazardous Atmospheres (ALOHA) software and ArcGIS/Model Builder to provide pre-plan maps to support response to a hazardous chemical release. After entering variables related to the subject chemical and average local weather conditions into CAMEOfm, ALOHA will be used to create a release plume. Then using the ALOHA ArcMap Import tool, the plume will be brought into a pre-formatted map which includes critical infrastructure and special needs facilities. A Model Builder routine will be run in ArcMap to create a standardized pre-plan map with buffers of concentration. The model then will produce summary statistics of census population data to enable development of severity rankings for those at risk. Participants will be provided access to a zip file of CAMEO and ALOHA software as well as the Model Builder model, MXD, and supporting documentation.
