Helping teams decide quicker

Emergency Management

Making Good Decisions Under Pressure

Emergency management is a high pressure activity that relies on preparedness and coordination skills in a crisis.

Fires, cyclones and floods strike unexpectedly and require a surgical response from a range of agencies all working together for the common good.

Information flows need to be quick, accurate and easy to grasp so commanders can send teams to the right locations when they will have the biggest impact.

Beyond the response, where emergency management teams generally excel, agencies need to plan their resources and infrastructure investment for future seasons.

 

MAPS: CLARITY FOR ALL

Effective overall emergency management requires agencies to communicate well throughout the Planning, Preparation, Response, Recovery (PPRR) cycle.

Sharing information at each stage of the cycle through an intelligence framework with maps enables teams to form and visualise a common operating picture to work proactively and efficiently.
