Terrebonne Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness Selects TerraGo Edge and GeoPDF Technology

Washington, D.C. – June 9, 2016 – TerraGo announced today that the Terrebonne Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (TOHSEP) has selected TerraGo Edge for mobile teams that need to perform property and infrastructure damage assessments in the wake of hurricanes, storms and other natural disasters.

Terrebonne Parish, located in southern Louisiana along the Gulf of Mexico, is one of the areas hardest hit by hurricanes and other natural disasters in recent years. TOHSEP teams, often working in conjunction with state, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), American Red Cross and citizen emergency response team (CERT) volunteers will fan out in property zones to assess the damage after a disaster event. TOHSEP needs a mobile solution that can be instantly deployed to individuals and organizations, available on personal phones or government-issued tablets, for both iOS and Android.

According to Earl Eues, Director of the Terrebonne Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, “In the event of a disaster, we can’t count on Internet access. That is a lesson we learned during Hurricane Gustav. With TerraGo GeoPDFs and TerraGo Edge, property maps and imagery will always be available in an emergency, even without an Internet connection.”

“At TerraGo, we’re proud to contribute to the Office of Homeland Security’s ability to keep working and help the community when it needs it most,” says John Timar, Vice President, Worldwide Sales, TerraGo. “TerraGo products have been used by emergency management and disaster recovery organizations for years, so they’re designed to work in disconnected environments and field-tested in the most demanding conditions.”

“Now our teams will have the maps and forms they need to keep working, to assess the damage to our communities and properties in the immediate wake of a disaster,” said Eues. “And that’s where recovery really begins.”
