About Us

All-Hazard awareness, intelligence, and risk management

All-hazard awareness, intelligence, and risk management are three key components of effective emergency preparedness and response. All-hazard awareness involves understanding the various types of hazards and their potential impact on individuals, communities, or organizations. Intelligence gathering involves collecting and analyzing information on potential hazards, threats, or risks. Risk management is the process of identifying potential risks and developing strategies to minimize or mitigate the impact of those risks.

By integrating all-hazard awareness, intelligence, and risk management into emergency management planning, responders can better prepare for, respond to, and recover from a variety of emergencies, including natural disasters, terrorist attacks, pandemics, and other potential threats. Through effective risk management strategies, organizations can minimize the impact of disasters and maintain essential operations during times of crisis.

Fusion Center

Our Fusion Center Manager’s oversee and share up-to-date data with responders during an emergency to aid in decision-making and achieve control and management goals. Their role centers around coordinating information coming from various sources to make it easily digestible and useful for those on the front lines responding to an incident. This allows for a more efficient and effective response effort, as multiple agencies and disciplines are able to work together with a shared understanding of the situation. The manager must ensure that the information being distributed is accurate, timely, and relevant to the responders’ needs. They must also be able to think critically and adjust their strategy as new information becomes available. Overall, a Fusion Center Manager plays a critical role in promoting collaboration and ensuring that the response effort is as effective as possible.

We Help First Responders and Dispatch Centers by providing

Initial Incident Support (IIS) calculates the rate of spread projections of wildland fires using measurements of fire behavior, weather conditions, topography and fuel type. These measurements are used to input data into computer models that forecast the fire’s potential growth. The projections produced by these models are then used to create an evacuation and containment plan, and other emergency response strategies.

The probability and impact of an emerging incident are determined by analyzing the size and scope of the incident, including the size of the fire, the proximity to populated areas, the weather, fuel type, and topography. Using this information, risk assessments are conducted to predict the likelihood of the fire spreading and its potential impact on the environment and nearby communities. This data is used to coordinate resources and prioritize evacuation orders, areas of suppression, and resource allocation. This information is shared with other agencies and local authorities to ensure a coordinated approach to emergency response and incident management.

Initial Incident Support (IIS) gathers intelligence through real-time monitoring of radio and other communication channels. This allows them to receive information about the current situation, including the nature and severity of the incident, potential hazards and resources needed. IIS then updates responding resources and dispatch centers on the latest information, including details about the incident location, potential risks, and the capabilities of responding resources. This helps emergency response agencies to make better-informed decisions and allocate resources more effectively. IIS continues to monitor the situation, providing ongoing updates and intelligence to ensure that responding resources have access to the latest information. This distributed information is critical for effective response and decision making, allowing responders to adapt to changing conditions and make informed decisions to support effective incident management and response.

Initial Incident Support (IIS) distributes perimeters, imagery and video from aircraft with sensor capability through a suite of technical tools and software. Sensors on the aircraft collect data and transmit it to a ground station in real-time. This data is then processed and analyzed, creating imagery, maps and video representations of the incident in progress.

These products are then sent to firefighters and emergency managers to use as actionable intelligence. This information is used to make tactical decisions about the management of the incident, such as directing resources to areas of high risk and identifying safe escape routes.

IIS also plays a critical role in situational awareness and public safety, as the availability of real-time information enables effective communication with media, public and other stakeholders. Overall, IIS provides a critical resource to support the incident management team in the rapid and efficient resolution of incidents.
