FEMA: Operational Planning Worksheet (ICS 215) Mobile App
Rapid response is vital when disaster strikes.
How does it work?
This FEMA Operational Planning Worksheet (ICS 215) Mobile App will expedite disaster management activities, which will get relief and emergency responders to the areas they are most needed. It organizes and stores disaster risk data for the Incident Command System (ICS), which monitors complex emergency management activities. These electronic records in the database are easier to search than the previous paper records.
This app is intended for emergency planning staff of natural disasters, including forest fires or flooding. And it can also be used for man-made disasters such as gas explosions, an active shooter or a security incident that might involve homeland security. You may customize this planning tool to develop a high- quality emergency plan for fast incident response. Since this handy app can be accessed onsite on a smartphone or tablet, it expedites risk assessment, the recovery process, and disaster mitigation. Personnel will appreciate this app during emergency operations, which may include training and personal protective equipment for first responders, environmental health risks and the identification of hazardous materials.
It is also an important feature when organizing long-term recovery operations that involve monitoring off-site storage, rebuilding residential and business property, and maintaining healthcare facilities, such as a local clinic or hospital. FEMA's goal is to build a consistent nationwide approach to emergency management. This disaster preparedness communication network will connect emergency responders and disaster management from all over the country. Use this app's reporting feature to run convenient real-time report PDFs that are exportable and shareable.
