Dallas County Uses DHS Grant to Grab Incident Management Software
“During a disaster, it is imperative that we move from response to recovery as quickly and seamlessly as possible,” said Robie Robinson, director of security and emergency management, Dallas County. “To expedite the response/recovery times, we decided to implement a common incident management software program that enables vital information sharing across the region – thus increasing the efficiency and accuracy of threat, incident, and recovery information.”
Funded via a Department of Homeland Security grant, Dallas County implemented six locally-hosted systems. The software provides users in North Central Texas with a common operational picture through standardized summaries, reports, requests, notifications, directives and annotated maps as well as a resource tracking utility.
