Plan for Response
Emergency Response Planning includes many facets. This Objective includes developing emergency plans, establishing emergency operations centres, identifying resources, preparing to issue warnings, and planning for evacuation. The primary measures are
- Development of emergency plans
- Signing of mutual aid agreements
- Identification of resource inventories
- Creation of Contact Lists
During the Planning Process
During the planning process the information, subsequent models, maps and decision support tools developed as part of the Hazard, Risk, Vulnerability and Capability Assessment (HRVCA), are at your finger tips with EmerGeo Fusionpoint and mapping.
As the process takes shape and response guidelines, checklists, resources, contacts and agreements are formalized, EmerGeo software continues its role as the repository of record.
Responding to an Emergency or Major Planned Event
This Objective also includes the actual activation and management of the response to an emergency. EmerGeo software again plays a key role during the actual response. All the information developed during the planning process is easily accessible:
- Response Guidelines
- Roles/Responsibilities Checklists
- Hazard-Specific Checklists
- Mutual Aid Agreements
- Resource Inventory
- Contact Management
- Evacuation Routes
- Media and Public Relations Templates
Good response planning can help ease decision making, coordinate partners, minimize confusion and reduce damage of property and life. EmerGeo Fusionpoint and Mapping puts critical information at your fingers during this process.
EmerGeo Fusionpoint and mapping is used in an activated EOC to gather real-time incident intelligence, support decision making, share critical information and maintain an accurate record of events (historical log).
