Vendor Landscape: Emergency Incident Management Systems
Expect the unexpected – support and connect emergency preparedness and response personnel.
- The ability to access, manage, and distribute resources and information in real-time during an emergency is critical. During an emergency incident, resources and time must be managed seamlessly to effectively reduce and mitigate the impact and severity of disasters.
- The frequency of natural disasters and accidents is expected to increase and whether or not this is the direct result of global warming, aging infrastructure, tribal reservation locations, etc., tribal nations must be prepared to protect and be stewards for their assets and communities through prompt and coordinated responses.
- Emergency incident management systems are becoming more innovative and reliable. Nearly all providers will need to deploy their solution as a cloud solution to ensure availability of data and communication during a disaster, and innovative real-time mapping and live-streaming components are enabling tribes to uniquely target and mitigate disasters.
- While we all want the latest technology and resources, it is important to identify the differences between your tribal agency’s needs and wants. Determine what your tribe needs through research, data analysis, and statistics from your tribe’s experience throughout the year that support your funding case.
- Don’t justify an emergency incident management solution purely on emergency management benefits. These tools can be used for many purposes including managing events such as concerts, community events, and pow-wows.
