New WebEOC Mobile App Making an Impact on Emergency Operations On-the-Go

Information is power, especially when an emergency or disaster strikes. Emergency responders can’t afford to be cut off from critical information and resources when they’re out in the field. That’s why we created the new WebEOC mobile app.

The WebEOC mobile app keeps emergency staff connected when they’re away from their desk, and makes preparation and readiness tasks easier and more efficient. The mobile-friendly boards are easy to view and edit, and keep users informed and situationally aware during an emergency, disaster, or other event.

The WebEOC mobile app has changed how one coastal emergency management agency performs many of their daily operations for emergency preparedness and response, said Emergency Management Specialist Aaron Thompson, of Chatham County EMA located in Savannah, Georgia.

In late August, approaching Puerto Rico and the Bahamas, forecasts showed Hurricane Dorian as already a strong Category 5 hurricane and projected it to turn towards the U.S. coast. The entire state of Florida, as well as the Georgia coast, sat well in the projected path of potentially the strongest storm to ever make landfall on the mainland U.S.

After ravaging the Bahamas for nearly two days with 185 mph winds and a 23-foot storm surge, Dorian made its turn towards the Florida coast, and emergency managers began ramping up preparations for what could be a disastrous event. To help organize and streamline their preparations and response, nearly all of the state’s emergency management agencies relied on WebEOC.

Controlled Chaos: Preparing for the Unexpected at Large-Scale Planned Events

2019 08 9 / by David Layman posted in Incident management, Crisis Communication, Events

0 Comments

Have you ever been to a major sporting event, concert, or festival and looked around at the multitude of people and wondered what might happen if there was an emergency? How would event planners or first responders be able to navigate the chaos if a crisis occurred, and react quickly and effectively in the midst of a large crowd of people?

Whether it’s a large-scale “planned” event like the example above, or an “unplanned” critical incident or disaster, situational awareness is the name of the game. Situational awareness enables key personnel like event planners, law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics and other first responders to respond quickly and effectively to prevent smaller incidents from becoming larger, more dangerous and potentially life-threatening ones.
