Held March 6, Winter Blast simulated mass-casualty events in Philadelphia, PA; Washington, D.C.; and San Antonio, TX. The focus was on electronically validating Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 interoperable credentials issued from multiple jurisdictions. The targeted population included Federal and Mutual Aid healthcare, emergency support function, and essential government emergency response officials.
During the demonstration, iMapData provided officials at 13 emergency operations centers (EOCs) with near real-time human resource situational awareness, displaying critical data in interactive maps and reports.
Using iMapData’s Web-based service, EOC officials could:
- Visually identify when and where emergency response officials entered and exited demonstration locations
- Validate emergency response officials’ identities and skill sets
- Electronically account for all participants for post-event reconstruction
“We are honored to be the only provider of real-time situational awareness and geospatial data invited to participate in this demonstration,” said Larry DeFranco, President and CEO of iMapData. “If disaster strikes, we are proud that our service can help ensure that credentialed healthcare providers can quickly and effectively begin helping those in need.”
