The Regional Homeland Security Coordinating Committee is working to develop a metro-wide system that allows Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs) to share information -- both in times of crisis and in day-to-day operations.
WebEOC is a web-based information management system that provides a single access point for the collection and dissemination of emergency or event-related information. It was designed to aid decision making by providing authorized users real-time information in a user-friendly format. WebEOC can be used during the planning, mitigation, response and recovery phases of any emergency. It can also be used by agencies during day-to-day activities to manage routine, non-emergency related operations.
Web EOC integrates data, video, messaging, and many other types of information. It distributes that information both to individual terminals and to projection screens. It also allows for remote access via the Internet for authorized users.
Being able to share real time information with other agencies in the region can allow for more rapid deployment of the regional resources available to emergency managers.
For more information about the WebEOC project, contact Erin Lynch at 816/701-8390.
