EMS Mass Incident Deployment: Mass Casualty Incident Planning Checklist Mobile App
In the event of a major disaster, time is of the essence.
How does it work?
The EMS Mass Incident Deployment: Basic Incident Deployment Checklists mobile app will enhance emergency response during disaster events. This app will coordinate emergency medical services to create a better prepared EMS deployment during mass care incidents. The development of EMS-specific policies will improve EMS readiness to manage the full spectrum of hazards, including injuries and trauma, that occur in a disaster.
Management may use this form to prepare for natural disasters that include an earthquake, pandemic influenza, or a hurricane. It can also be used during man-made disasters, such as an active shooter, terrorist attacks that involve Homeland Security, or a mass highway accident.
This electronic form is one component of the Incident Command System (ICS), a disaster management database that can process the cross-discipline needs of any type of disaster in the nation. Using federal guidelines, this app can be customized to serve the unique public health and emergency preparedness needs in your community.
FEMA is organizing a comprehensive nationwide approach to emergency management situations. Jurisdictions and disciplines are encouraged to use the EMS Mass Incident Deployment: Basic Incident Deployment Checklists mobile app for disaster preparedness.
