1 Session 151 National Incident Management Systems Session 15 Slide Deck

2 Session 152 Session Objectives 1.Use of Supporting Technologies in Incident Management Explained 2.Supporting Technologies Concepts and Principles 3.Supporting Incident Management with Science and Technology

3 Session 153 Technology Requirements Information management Communications with staff Communications with other responding agencies Communications with stakeholders and partners Communications with the public Situational awareness – reporting from the incident site and surrounding area Damage assessments Resource management Credentialing Other

4 Session 154 The discussion in this Objective will focus on four general areas within incident management where supporting technologies play a key role: Information Management Internal and External Communications Resource Management Credentialing

5 Session 155 Information Management Information management systems are used by response agencies to: Collect, update, and process data Track resources Display the readiness status of resources

6 Session 156 Information Management Examples of resource management information management systems include: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Logistics calculators Transportation tracking systems Resource tracking and inventory systems Warehouse inventory systems

7 Session 157 Information Management Existing Information Management Technologies: Web EOC Virginia Interoperability Picture for Emergency Management (VIPER) Response Vision NIMS Incident Resource Inventory System (IRIS) The Gap Analysis Program (GAP) Data Collection and Analysis Tool (DCAT) Resource Order and Status System (ROSS)

8 Session 158 Information Management Supporting technologies can provide a platform for the collection, processing and dissemination of incident-related information by: Clearly defining information needs Identifying potential information sources Providing templates for how information is reported Accepting information from a variety of sources/media Processing and aggregating information Creating displays of information using a variety of presentations Disseminating information Updating reports and presentations as new information is collected and processed

9 Session 159 Internal / External Communications Interoperability New Social Media

10 Session 1510 Resource Management (EM) “Coordinating and overseeing the application of tools, processes, and systems to provide incident managers with timely and appropriate resources during an incident.” -FEMA, n/d

11 Session 1511 Resources Personnel Teams Facilities Equipment Supplies

12 Session 1512 Task Groups Establishing systems to describe, inventory, request, and track resources Activating these systems before and during an incident Dispatching resources before and during an incident Deactivating and recalling resources during or after an incident

13 Session 1513 Managing Resources in Large Incidents Having enough resources to do the job Knowing how to best allocate those resources Understanding where the request for resources should end, and limiting requests for outside assistance at that point

14 Session 1514 Principles Interoperability and Compatibility Technology Support Technology Standards Broad-Based Requirements Strategic R&D Planning

15 Session 1515 Interoperability / Compatibility Interoperability and compatibility are achieved through the use of tools such as: Common communications and data standards Digital data formats Equipment standards Design standards

16 Session 1516 Technology Support Technology support is the use and incorporation of new and existing technologies to improve efficiency and effectiveness in all aspects of incident management Technology support permits organizations using NIMS to enhance all aspects of emergency management and incident response Technology support facilitates incident operations and sustains the R&D programs that underpin the long-term investment in the Nation’s future incident management capabilities

17 Session 1517 Technology Standards Agencies involved in incident management: Federal, State and local emergency governments NGOs The Private Sector National Professional Organizations Voluntary Agencies Code and standards groups

18 Session 1518 Broad-Based Requirements New technologies needed and identified NIMS aggregates and prioritizes technology requirements Coordination and evaluation of research

19 Session 1519 Strategic R&D Planning Identify future technology requirements Insert in national R&D agenda NIC DHS Science and Technology Directorate

20 Session 1520 Supporting Incident Management with Science and technology Operational Scientific Support Technical Standards Support R&D Support

21 Session 1521 Operational Scientific Support Identify and mobilize scientific resources Scientific and technological expertise NMS preparedness organizations Coordination by DHS

22 Session 1522 Technical Standards Support Performance Measurements - Principles Consensus Based Performance Testing and evaluation Technical Guidelines for Training Emergency Responders on Equipment Use

23 Session 1523 R&D Support Involve all responding agencies Resource prioritization DHS and national R&D agenda
