At the request of FEMA Region 9 through ITDRC and the GCC team, John deployed to the Woolsey fires. During his time there, John worked closely with the FEMA team and first responders. John collected street level and aerial imagery to help FEMA. John also trained a team of LA County FireFighters to collect 3D imagery for the use in identifying post-fire areas of concern. This was critical in determining where landslides or potential flooding could occur during rainy season.
