Featured Data: Capital Region Updates

The region’s public information officers maintain a virtual joint information center (V-JIC), Capital Region Updates, to serve as a one-stop shop for area residents offering guidance and information during emergencies. The site links residents to emergency alerts as well as traffic and transit information. It features real-time news from their local governments through a regional news feed. The site also has localized weather from the National Weather Service and tips on how to prepare for emergencies.
