Special Webinar: Exploring Incident Management Technology
Buffalo Computer Graphics DLAN
Incident management software (IMS) consists of tools that aggregate planned or no-notice critical incident information in a real-time collaborative environment to bring situational status, response priorities, and resource deployment into a common operating picture. IMS combines diverse types of data (e.g., map views, property information, sensor data, resource tracking, computer-aided dispatch) in a multilayered format. In doing so, it provides first responders and emergency managers access to the information they need to manage small-scale (e.g., house fires) and large-scale no-notice incidents (e.g., earthquakes) as well as planned events (e.g., parades, sporting events, protests). Emergency management, fire service, law enforcement, emergency medical services, and other response agencies use IMS to conduct planning, multiagency coordination, resource allocation, asset tracking, and information collection and analysis, all of which aid decision-making and allow for after-action reporting and auditing.
