IAEM Think Tank: "Smart Cities - How New Technology, Including Nanotechnology, Can Enhance All Phases of Emergency Management"

register online 
As Smart Cities and nanotechnology are emerging, these have the potential to improve community resilience. We are hosting our Think Tank from San Diego, California, one of the leaders in the Smart City initiative. Smart City San Diego is a broad public-private collaboration that includes the City of San Diego, San Diego Gas & Electric, General Electric, the University of California-San Diego, and CleanTech San Diego. Joining the discussion is San Diego-based startup AerNos, Inc, a nano gas sensor company developing air quality monitoring solutions for Smart Cities. Deployed on smart street lights and parking meters, AerNos sensors will provide granular, actionable data to cities. The objective of the collaboration is to improve the region's energy independence, to empower consumers to use electric vehicles, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to encourage economic growth. This webinar will look at the use of nanotechnology in helping develop Smart Cities and how this new technology could affect the field of emergency management. Speakers will include: Erik Caldwell, director, City of San Diego (California) Economic Development Department; Sundip R. Doshi, founder and CEO, AerNos, Inc., and John Valencia, executive director, City of San Diego's Office of Homeland Security. The Think Tank will be moderated by Richard Serinospeaker bios
