The website for the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program (ODMAP) provides real-time data on suspected fatal and non-fatal overdose events to support public safety and public health efforts to mobilize response to sudden increases or spikes in these events. Agencies participating in the program, which may include law enforcement, fire, emergency responders, hospitals and medical examiners, sign a data sharing agreement and then enter suspected overdose events into the database. Participating agencies can create spike alerts for their areas and the ODMAP provides a Spike Response Framework to help local jurisdictions develop a response plan. the website includes a national map platform that features overdose data from across the country to assist with strategic analysis and response plans. Use of the data is limited to state, local, federal or tribal agencies serving the interests of public safety and health. The website includes reports on ODMAP data, tools for implementation, training materials an information about opportunities for grant funding.
