Recognition for Innovate Client: EPA Region 9 Common Operating Picture/California Wildfires Team

Innovate is proud to announce that our clients within EPA Region 9 are recipients of this year’s Federal Employee of the Year Awards, which were recently presented to outstanding Bay Area public servants by the Federal Executive Board. We have supported EPA Region 9 for over eight years across a range of initiatives including geospatial and IT support services.

EPA Region 9 played a critical role in responding to the 2017 and 2018 wildfires in California.  Innovate supported a multidisciplinary team in the development of an innovative, web-based tool to support emergency planning, preparedness and response activities.  The Common Operating Picture data platform enhanced situational awareness, increased access to data and simplified rapid decision-making.  The team’s efforts significantly improved the efficiency and effectiveness of EPA’s response to the Northern California wildfires.

We appreciate our partnership with our federal clients. EPA Region 9’s tireless and groundbreaking efforts exemplify the spirit that Region 9 staff and managers bring to their work every day.

Innovate is proud to support this team!
