MI 911 featured at IoTWorld Internet of Life Saving Things for First Responder Toxic Hazard Warnings @ $1 per housing unit

Closing Panel: What Do NG911, FirstNet and Smart Cities Mean to the Idea of the IoLST?

As FirstNet and NG911 continue to make strides in advancing their networks, they will likely become the backbone for the Internet of Life Saving Things. But together will all of these connected networks become the backbone for a greater smart city ecosystem? Rather than reinvent the wheel, review what the...

Stephanie Hayden presented Metropolitan Intelligence's Public Data & IoT Utility used for urban housing, health, and environmental hazard management focused on ending lead poisoning.  For the last year she's created a non-profit organization, SmartOakland, in order to find a way to get these life saving data and IoT-driven services into the hands of the constituency and into the public sector agencies instead of waiting for the day when a sponsored program may come into existence in the future.

The need was present because lead poisoning in Oakland, CA is four times worse than Flint, MI and there was no cross-functional organization working to end this crisis for the people. Over the last year she's worked with the City of Oakland, Alameda County Healthy Homes Lead Poisoning and Asthma Prevention Program, Alameda County Public Health Department, and many non-profits working on Environmental Justice and housing rights issues to understand what's wrong with the systems so she could design technology solutions to fix things.

Metropolitan Intelligence has designed an entire end-to-end, Software-as-a-Service, product suite to address each and every step of this ecosystem in order to do what people in the associated industries know - we need to Find It. Fund It. and Fix It.

The first step of this solution is Find It and it turns out this portion of the suite answers about 80% of the issues service providers have in solving the problem.

Finding the space and time where a person is direct proximity and exposure to invisible lead poisoning.

It turns out if you can find these intersections, we can intervene to stop people from ever being poisoned in the first place, get the funding to abate the lead in the house, and get certified building contractors and health providers on the job to abate the lead from people, housing, and our environment.

It turns out a lot of people want this information to provide services to constituents - like 911 and First Responders who want to know when people are in harms way.  They also want to know if they're running into a burning building, that that building could be poisoning them and their team as they run in, unprotected against lead poisoning in the burning air.

There are many uses for our Google Maps-integrated lead hazard dashboards. 

Here's a little bit about Stephanie's background on IoT World's 2018 website.
