U.S. National Grid (A Vital and Growing Role in Emergency Response)

The Winter 2018 Institute of Navigation (ION) Quarterly Newsletter Volume 28 (see https://www.ion.org/publications/newsletter.cfm ) contains an article (page 12 -14) under the quarterly Defense Matters column written by Overlook’s President Doug Taggart drawing attention to the challenges that confront emergency response when those in need of assistance, following large national events, e.g., hurricanes, floods, or fire, are reporting their locations with spatial references (i.e., street addresses) not commonly used, or not known, by outside agencies augmenting response efforts.
