Vancouver Adopts WebEOC
City of Vancouver will manage emergencies with WebEOC®
WebEOC® is selected as new Crisis Management Software for City’s Emergency Operation Centre.
VANCOUVER, B.C., June 9, 2005 – EmerGeo Solutions of Vancouver, B.C. is please to announce that the City will upgrade its current EM/2000™ emergency management software to WebEOC® for managing emergencies and major events from its Emergency Operation Centre (EOC) at E-Comm.
WebEOC® gives emergency personnel electronic status boards to instantly capture and communicate information on the status of emergency events, resources, critical facilities and other critical information that decision-makers need within an emergency centre or in the field. The EmerGeo™ mapping software already running in Vancouver’s EOC has been integrated with WebEOC® and will continue to maintain a visual picture of what is happening on the ground and incorporates hazard models that predict what is expected to happen.
“We selected WebEOC® because it is used by many emergency organizations across North America and it was the most intuitive and cost effective solution available to the City”, states Ronald Martin, Emergency Coordinator for the City of Vancouver.
Vancouver’s EOC is located in state of the art E-Comm building. Communications are coordinated through the EOC (Ops Room)
