FEMA: Incident Action Plan Safety Analysis (ICS 215A) Mobile App
The FEMA: Incident Action Plan Safety Analysis (ICS 215A) mobile app was designed to serve as a comprehensive disaster management tool.
How does it work?
This app records risk elements for the Incident Command System (ICS), a database populated with complex emergency management activities.
When time is of the essence, an incident management team doesn't want to be slowed down with excess paperwork. This convenient app expedites emergency responses because it can be accessed anywhere with a smartphone or tablet and information can be shared instantly.
Emergency planning experts must prepare for every sort of accident or major disaster, such as storms or a hurricane exacerbated by climate change. Each situation is unique and this software will help a response team prepare for hazards through careful disaster planning. For example, a public health situation caused by radiation exposure may require personal protective equipment for emergency responders.
The goal of FEMA is to have a consistent nationwide approach to emergency management. Jurisdictions and disciplines are encouraged to use the FEMA: Incident Action Plan Safety Analysis (ICS 215A) mobile app for disaster preparedness.
