Long-Term Partnership at the Boston Marathon Continues, Using WebEOC, EMTrack

The stakes are always high when incident managers are working to assure the safety of the general public. This is especially true at a major public sporting event like the 123rd running of the Boston Marathon.

At the world’s oldest annual marathon, the sixth largest such event in the world, over 30,000 participants striving for athletic excellence don’t need the extra pressure of concerning themselves with what goes on behind the scenes; but they should find it comforting that there are many incident management professionals also simultaneously striving for excellence in keeping people safe with support from Juvare.

Better Together: Improving Outcomes when Data Pairs with Mapping

Nov 29, 2018 12:33:35 PM / by Matt Cronin posted in Emergency Management, Preparedness


As published in the IAEM November 2018 Bulletin.

Trouble comes at us faster and more unpredictably than ever before, and time is never on our side during a disaster. If the wind changes during a wildfire, the whole scenario changes in an instant. Higher population densities make preparedness, response and recovery even more challenging. Old processes and antiquated ways of performing tasks add complexity to any event, and modern challenges demand strategically collaborative approaches.

“Better together” is the result of a partnership designed to address these challenges. Formed between industry leaders, Juvare and Esri, the partnership combines the WebEOC and ArcGIS platforms to help mutual clients respond more quickly and effectively in any emergency.

So, it was no surprise that a Mass celebrated by Pope Francis at an outdoor venue last week in Kaunas attracted over 100,000 participants. This included a significant number of elderly and disabled persons, many of whom traveled long distances, and arrived many hours ahead of the scheduled program.

Personal preparedness is critically important. During a time of widespread emergency or disaster, it can be up to three days before resources are readily available to residents again. In order to combat the limited access to vitally important resources, families should prepare a disaster supplies kit that would provide up to 72 hours of self-reliance.
