WHAT IS OPERATION DRAGON FIRE?
A technology offering that delivers better information to decision makers during a disaster.
Presently, Operation Dragon Fire (ODF) is a design collaborative initiative between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD), and many stakeholders to develop a technology solution to aid decision makers during times of disaster.

In April, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Texas Water Science Center launched the first Twitter accounts to disseminate real-time flood and rain data.
FEMA operates “Watch Centers” to collect information from traditional, publicly-available media such as newspapers, radio, and television.
Though unlike Saint Bernards searching for lost adventurers in the Alps, Operation Dragon Fire has a wealth of data and information available to determine the best direction for disaster professionals to go in times of disaster.
