10 “Fire engines and trucks from each fire station will go out on ‘damage- assessment’ routes, where they will look for dangerous situations and buildings, and look for trapped victims, fires, major damage to utilities, building damage and bridge conditions.” Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels Emergency Preparedness web site May 4, 2006 Outline Intro Miki Demo 1 Demo 2 Dev. Future Q & A Appendix

11 “Commanders are still using Grease pencils on glass to represent Emergency Responders visually in the command Center, because they are comfortable with that interface, and not with a Computer Interface.” Fire Station #17 Seattle Outline Intro Miki Demo 1 Demo 2 Dev. Future Q & A Appendix

12 “The MiKi is a great system to allow emergency responders to not only see, in real time, scene management, but to document what is going on and to have a record of the response and activity during a major event. The incident commander, supervisors, other critical on scene responders and managers can easily see what is happening, where responders are located, what needs to be covered or addressed, and know what others are doing because of its interactive capability. This is a terrific tool that enhances critical incident response and management.” Vicky Storm Chief of Police University of Washington Outline Intro Miki Demo 1 Demo 2 Dev. Future Q & A Appendix
