Think of the following scenario… You are an emergency manager of a small city or a rural county. Suddenly, a forest fire threatens your community.
Within hours, your Emergency Operations Center (EOC) goes from gathering dust to being a beehive of part-time emergency management workers, all trying to remember their ICS training.
In the chaos that ensues, you are trying to notify city or county leaders, get information in and out, get resources in, and most of all, support emergency response activities at the incident scene.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have an inexpensive, easy-to-learn system to help you manage the incident? Incident management software that makes your life easier?
The Emergency Management Incident Tracking (EMIT) system does just that. It is a SharePoint based system that is inexpensive and easy to learn.
Unlike other much more complicated systems, EMIT offers you basic functions necessary to help your part-time staff effectively manage their operations, planning, and logistics functions.
Here Are 4 Reasons You Should Have EMIT Incident Management Software on Your Team.
1. EMIT handles incident management details.
Created by EOC managers, EMIT was built to automate incident tracking tasks and help an emergency manager focus on the emergency by providing an easy-to-learn system that manages the most common incident logistics and operations processes.
2. EMIT Integrates your data and automates your EOC processes.
EMIT incident management software provides a system that collects Incident information, notifies your team, and guides you through the posting of reports and announcements.
You and your team can make notes, log details, upload photos and documents, track the procurement, deployment and disposition of resources, then archive your reports.
3. EMIT is stable and uses Microsoft® SharePoint.
SharePoint is used by government and private agencies everywhere. Chances are your organization already leverages the power of SharePoint for information sharing. EMIT takes Microsoft SharePoint to the next level and supports a secure EOC notification and management approval process. Built-in workflows and communication help automate tasks and present information to the right people every time, so you can focus your attention on management and trust EMIT to take care of posting and notifications. With tools designed to track the incident and support the work of teams, the EOC can be virtual or fully staffed.
4. EMIT is ready right now!
EMIT is implemented on SharePoint (cloud or server) and is ready to be provisioned with your information: contacts, resources, teams, key staff members, internal or external notifications or resources.
You can add “users” on the fly as needed and maintain full security of your forms and processes through permissions. You can keep all data internal to your system while allowing authorized users to view, input, report and archive information. EMIT also supports schedule and archive tasks using SharePoint capabilities.
