ArcGIS Online for organizations is a cloud-based mapping platform that is accessible from many different locations. Organizations can subscribe to the platform and use it to manage, create, store, and access hosted services, maps and applications.

ArcGIS Online for Emergency Management enables Departments to create, store, and access both locally hosted content, as well as, cloud-hosted content. The content will be comprised of services, maps and configurable applications.

The ArcGIS Online for Emergency Management solution allows emergency management organizations to use the entire platform to collaborate, catalog, and share maps and applications with members of your organization, other emergency management organizations or constituents of your state. You will utilize this model organization to set up an ArcGIS Organization for both your emergency management organization as well as a broader emergency management structure to collaborate across Departments.
