Lexi Update 5/5/16 - Hi everyone! I made the reference to the NGO we used as a case study a little more anonymous so we don't impact any relationships they  have with their sponsors. If anyone have any questions just reach  out to me!
April 2016:
If you are interested in helping first responders, volunteers and communities before, during or after a man-made or natural disaster...come join us!
Notes (NGO): 
  • e.g.  paint donation
  • Capture volunteers in your  city
  • Medium term: Manager at City Emergency Management needs real-time resource visualization (using in place analytics via salesforce) to show what is on hand and identify resource gaps before and during an emergency. Then she can use this information to find out what she needs before a disaster (to figure out who to target for outreach), and decide how to deploy resources during a disaster.
