A unique, innovative program, the Metropolitan Resilience Network (MRN), now has over 1,000 credentialed stakeholders from hundreds of public and private organizations in the New York metro area. MRN members are connected and collaborating on shared threats to the region through a unique technology platform as well as a wider spectrum of activities.
Through the MRN program, members are directly collaborating on preparedness, response and recovery activities in response to current and potential threats. The MRN reflects an innovative government agency and university collaboration, embodying the next wave in public-private partnership that is proving to be a global prototype for cities worldwide.
The program is championed and funded by the Office of Emergency Management of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. It was developed and is hosted by the International Center for Enterprise Preparedness (INTERCEP) at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. The Center is a global leader in organizational resilience advancing public-private collaboration on shared risks since its founding in 2004.
The Metropolitan Resilience Network has developed two key capabilities to help organizations build resilience and prepare for threats: 24/7 Situational Awareness Platform with Crisis Dashboards when Needed and Joint Communications & Collaboration Capacity.
The MRN’s innovative situational awareness platform is built upon a unique technology (TX360) developed by Swan Island Networks, a leading technology firm focused on advancing situational awareness and business intelligence.
