Item Identification

Title: Critical Facilities for Coastal Geographies
Short Name: CriticalFacilities_CoastalGeographies
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2016
Abstract:

The critical facilities data are derived from the USGS Structures Inventory Database (June, 2016). The structures in the derived dataset displays aggregated totals of law enforcement facilities, fire stations and EMS facilities, hospital and other medical facilities, and schools within several coastal footprints. These footprints include Coastal Shoreline Counties, Coastal Watershed Counties, Coastal States, the Coastal Zone, and FEMA Flood Zones.

Purpose:

The purpose of the statistics provided is to give screening-level counts of critical facilities that could be in harms way.

Data Set Information

Data Set Scope Code: Data Set
Maintenance Frequency: Annually
Entity Attribute Overview:

Critical facilities play a central role in disaster response and recovery. Understanding which facilities are exposed, and the degree of that exposure, can help reduce or eliminate service interruptions and costly redevelopment.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 616038
Description:

The National Structures Dataset data were downloaded in ESRI file geodatabases. The points were classified into four general categories; Law Enforcement, Fire/EMS, Hospital/Medical, and Schools. The classified points were intersected with different coastal footprints, and then aggregated to each footprints unit of measure (county, state, watershed, etc).
