Humpday Hangout: Mapping for Operational Safety

In this week’s Humpday Hangout, Frank Ricci, PJ Norwood and guest Jerry Knisley discuss using the FEMA grid system to map land and water areas in your response district. They will discuss how this can increase operational safety during both natural disasters and “regular” firefighting and rescue operations, marine safety and sonar, and more. 

Jerry Knisley joined HYPACK in 1997 as a support technician and served in this role for 16 years. In 2013 he was promoted to Technical Support Manager. Previous to HYPACK he served nine years in the US Navy as a Submarine Serviceman. During his 20 years at HYPACK he has provided technical assistant for customers in six different continents and more than 20 countries. Jerry has vast knowledge and experience in all aspects of hydrographic surveying using both HYPACK software and the extensive catalog of sensors that HYPACK supports.
