CAE to Provide Integrated Emergency Management System to Ottawa

Posted on Tuesday 4th March 2014 | First Responder & Security

CAE won a contract to provide an Emergency Management Information System to the City of Ottawa Office of Emergency Management. The system will improve multi-agency collaboration and enhance effective decision-making during emergency incidents.

CAE's Integrated Enterprise Solutions group will serve as the prime contractor and systems integrator to provide the Emergency Management Information System. CAE will integrate the WebEOC incident management system from Intermedix with the AMS critical and emergency communication system from Amika Mobile Corporation to create an emergency management information system that will improve information sharing and provide more timely information. CAE will also provide training to the city’s emergency response professionals and deliver software support for the system over the next three years.

The Emergency Management Information System will facilitate the reporting, tracking and sharing of critical information that is used to support decision-making throughout all phases of emergency management, including prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. The system will link and improve information sharing between the City of Ottawa's Emergency Operations Centre, Service Command Centre, and other emergency response agencies.
