Ideas That Enable Improved Outcomes Before, During and After Large-Scale Emergencies
In today’s world of ever-evolving disasters, resiliency is key.
Emergency management organizations play a critical role in the emergency response ecosystem by promoting resiliency of the public’s ability to respond to crises when they occur. Whether it means being more prepared by ensuring the availability of dedicated staff, having actionable data at their fingertips to enhance interagency coordination and situational awareness, or interacting with first responders and other partners to facilitate response, emergency management plays a critical role in improving outcomes brought on by large-scale disasters.
Agencies turn to Mission Critical Partners to help them address the risks and hazards of the emergency response process, such as modernizing aging infrastructure and establishing continuity of operations. Not only do we ensure the availability of technologies to support the response process, we also ensure the availability of resources by providing information technology (IT) staff augmentation. In addition, we help emergency management agencies incorporate and integrate data from social media and other technology sources to improve outcomes during natural and manmade disasters, and in the subsequent recovery process.
