A Session by Kate Marks (Deputy Director - Digital Services (IM&R), Environment Agency)

About this Session

In this presentation, you'll discover how the Environment Agency is harnessing the power of digital and data driven ways of working in the field of environmental incident and emergency response. We'll take a look behind the recent UK media headlines at some of the innovative technologies and processes that are being used to improve flood services and enhance incident reporting. Learn how automation has revolutionised the flood warning service, and how our cross-Gov work on Emergency Alerts will be used to provide real-time, life-saving information to those in flood-prone areas. You'll also discover how online reporting is streamlining incident response and helping to keep our communities safe and what further work is needed in the future.
