Geospatial Information Response Team (GIRT)

The USGS established the Geospatial Information Response Team (GIRT) to facilitate the effective coordination, communication, dissemination and archive of geospatial data and information during a disaster event.


The NGP Emergency Response Team coordinates, communicates and facilitates access to geospatial resources and data that supports multiple Program and Bureau requirements. These include providing direction, oversight, and support to the Program and its managers in responding to major hazard events and ensuring that the Program is able to fulfill it's mission under all circumstances. NGP also provides geospatial support to the Bureau and the Department for natural disaster events. The NGP Emergency Response Coordinator works with the Bureau Emergency Management Coordinator  to assure a consolidated communication and response strategy for the Program.
