MARIETTA, Ga. -- The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) presented Marietta the Create Award for the city's innovation and use of technology.
The City of Marietta said their department heads meet in Marietta's crisis management center when a public safety event occurs to coordinate the city's response. They handle emergencies and improve operations during a crisis using an online emergency management application and mobile computers.
Employees submit information simultaneously, according to City of Marietta officials. Seeing data in real-time has helped them respond to severe weather and citywide events.
