Today we're announcing the Enterprise Edition of our Equipment Management App for iOS & Android tablets and Smartphones. You need to remove the administrative burden of your equipment. Most response teams manage their expensive equipment with an inexpensive spreadsheet or paper based system, that's just wrong.
Incidents occur unpredictably and cause organizations to shift their focus and attention immediately to deal with the situation. The effectiveness of your crisis management largely depends on having a precise and up-to-date situational picture.
An important component of an emergency management program is the communications plan. When an incident occurs, the need to communicate is immediate. Many different audiences must be reached with information specific to their interests and needs. The image of an organization can be positively or negatively impacted by perceptions of their handling of the incident.
At this year’s event, SARscene will host its first ever Hackathon to highlight the benefits of collecting data and adopting technology for search & rescue. Law enforcement, military, SAR volunteers, provincial/territorial, and federal attendees will pitch their data related problems, while Canadian and international developers will form teams to try and solve them within just 24 hours.
When an event occurs emergency management processes normally take place in an Emergency Operations Center. Preparedness within the field of emergency management can best be defined as a state of readiness to respond to a disaster, crisis, or any other type of emergency situation.
Real-time data denotes information that is delivered immediately after collection. There is no delay in the timeliness of the information provided. Real-time data has endless benefits for decision making in any response scenario.

In the world of business, the heaviest users of information management applications are enjoying benefits such as increased knowledge sharing and more effective operations. These benefits have a measurable effect on their business. Emergency response organizations could be benefiting in the same way.
If you are designing a crisis management capability (or any other form of team required to stand up outside of normal operations) for an organisation then the concept of the ‘interface’ is a cornerstone of planning. An interface can be defined as the common boundary between two things – the point of interconnection between entities. Or it could be ‘the place where things happen’. In business and politics (nature as well) the interface is the boundary or zone where interesting things happen.
