The Department of Strategic Planning and Technological Development is working on the implementation and active use of latest technologies in the agency on the regular basis. An interactive map has been created that allows remote monitoring of emergency situation sites throughout Georgia. On the map strategic facilities are marked as well as the location of fire hydrants, water reservoirs locations and all the necessary information to simplify fire-rescue operations. It is also notable that means of communication were updated within the frames of the reform.
