In 2013 the District 5 GIS Task Force received a grant from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security to fund the hardware and supplies we need to provide mapping support to the District 5 Incident Management Team. We used the grant to purchase a laserprinter and large format plotter as well as three laptops and various other supplies. The City of Indianapolis generously provides the Task Force with a trailor with an attached generator we can set up in to support the IMT where ever they may be deployed.
