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.
Juvare’s Exchange19 conference will have a definite New Orleans flavor, with fun and fascinating networking activities that are unique to the Crescent City.
Who dat gonna be speaking at Exchange19?
If you want to be at the center of the universe for all things emergency preparedness and response, you don’t want to miss Juvare’s Exchange19 conference in New Orleans.
We’re excited to announce two outstanding keynote speakers...
Juvare Support is actively monitoring Hurricane Florence, along with all other tropical activity in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, taking all prudent precautions with our clients, employees, property and technology.
We maintain redundant data centers in multiple locations throughout the U.S. and proactively monitor status to ensure proper functioning at all times. Our preparations include validating our backup and recovery plans, confirming business continuity/disaster recovery plans with our data center partners, and ensuring our geographic redundancy. Within each data center, we also maintain redundant power sources.
International resiliency can seem larger than life. But there is a common perception that we all share the need for resiliency. Moreover, international resiliency is a common thread that binds us all together. Due to the interdependencies of global economics, finance and policies that span national divisions, events that transpire in one geographical area and in one market segment will impact other geographies and, potentially, other market segments.
In the previous post Addressing the Need to Cultivate Technology Adoption within Emergency Preparedness, we discussed where administrators face problems with users’ adoption of technology. We also outlined strategies to increase user adoption and speed up that process.
As we recognize that administrators of emergency management technologies often face challenges with various users, we can also acknowledge that managing the adoption of WebEOC is no different.
Vehicular accidents, road closures, highway construction, maintenance activities and severe weather can all lead to traffic gridlock. Such gridlocks come with serious implications for personal safety and an ever-present potential for significant economic impacts. In an effort to ensure safety in these and related situations, Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) entered into a discovery session with Intermedix to ensure safety and emergency management within their communities.
WebEOC was developed nearly two decades ago to meet the needs of emergency management agencies. Today, WebEOC is not only used by local, state and federal government agencies, but it is also utilized by corporations, public utilities, universities and more. With all of our WebEOC customers in mind, Intermedix has developed additional add-ons to support the needs of each organization. These add-ons, featured in our New Year, New Tech webinars, are outlined below to help you decide which ones best align with your agency’s objectives.
Having spent almost 15 years as a first responder and almost 10 years working in the emergency management field, I learned long ago that after-action reviews (AAR) are indispensable tools in an organization’s constant pursuit of improved performance and efficiency.
