Each year, Brookhaven National Labs and the Central Pine Barrens Joint Planning & Policy Commission host the New York State Wildfire & Incident Management Academy (NYWIMA) in Upton, New York (Long Island).
Epicenter Media & Training has had a supporting role in the operation of NYWIMA through EDSU (Epicenter’s Deployment Support Unit) to provide social & traditional media monitoring, high-definition video/photo capture, public information management, and other deliverables as part of the overall incident operation** since 2014.
**NYWIMA operates as a Type 2 incident and the Academy’s overhead staff is primarily staffed by New York State agencies such as NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (Rangers), Office of Fire Prevention & Control, Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Services, and the All-Hazards Type 2 Incident Management Team.
