Disaster Masters Internationally Recognised for Life-Saving Role

We have exciting news – all the way from San Diego! The Esri SAG Award winners have been announced!

A very big and heart-felt congratulations to the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) and the Brisbane City Council (BCC), which were today presented with an Esri Special Achievement in GIS Award, at the annual Esri International User Conference.

Receiving the award is quite an accomplishment. The QFRS and BCC were selected from an international pool of more than 100,000 nominated organisations to receive the coveted technology award. The awards recognise their significant contribution to the community, through their creative use of GIS during the 2011 Queensland disasters.

BCC’s Jeff Sangster and QFRS’ Mark Wallace accepted the awards in San Diego on behalf of their organisations.

 Find out more about these award-winning organisations and their GIS solutions in the media release.

Congratulations again to BCC and QFRS!
