How does the SIMCenter differ from a Department of Homeland Security Fusion Center?

  • The SIMCenter looks at long-range planning issues and policy for Sustainability and Resilient Cities, rather than immediate disaster and security issues like those that are important to Fusion Centers used by first responder organizations.


  • Access to Fusion Centers is restricted to Security and First Responder personnel.

  • Access to SIMCenter is available to everyone.
