The application and development of the new generation information technology is a vital support to realize the modernization of emergency management. At present, the new generation information technology such as big data and artificial intelligence has been widely used in natural disasters, safe production, and other fields. It has improved the monitoring and early warning, regulation and law enforcement, command and decision support, rescue, and social mobilization capabilities of governments, promoted the level of intrinsic safety of enterprises, provided important support for the precise prevention and control of the COVID-19, and increased the efficiency of China’s emergency management and sense of security of the public. In the process of comprehensively promoting the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation with the Chinese modernization, driven by the strategic need of using the new security paradigm to ensure the new development paradigm, the application of the new generation information technology shall not only meet single and specific needs of operations, but also pay more attention to the management of unconventional emergencies, the value guidance of the overall national security concept, the support to the institutional advantages of China’s emergency management, and the standard articulation, open innovation of data resources, and intelligent utilization, so as to realize the co-evolution between emergency management and information technology based on the decrease of uncertainty. The modernization of emergency management supported by the new generation information technology also needs to play an important role in developing independent knowledge, promoting interdisciplinary integration, leading information technology innovation, facilitating industrial prosperity and development, and making more contributions to the Chinese modernization.
