How the Interactive Floor Plan integrates into your assessments
Generally, assessments provide information about vulnerabilities that organizations have and any necessary information needed to protect the facility and assets. The information can be used by organizations to prepare plans, make needed improvements, and enhance response during emergencies. The Interactive Floor Plan is a tool that, if added, will provide the following emergency response entities with a clear understanding of what is located at the facility and show them the quickest route to locations:
- Incident Command System (ICS): This management system is designed to cover the prevention, preparation, response, and recovery from terrorist attacks, major disasters, and other emergencies. The implementation of such a system would allow all levels of government throughout the nation to work efficiently and effectively together. Examples include: Fire, Police, Security, Emergency Responders.
- Mobile Command Post: Incident management in the nation's current threat environment necessitates mobility, interconnectivity and communications interoperability between federal, state and local emergency service agencies.
- Emergency Operations Center (EOC): EOCs primarily provide information and support to incident management and response/recovery coordination activities.
- Department of Homeland Security ACAMS: The Automated Critical Asset Management System (ACAMS) is a Web-enabled information services portal that helps state and local governments build critical infrastructure/key resource (CIKR) protection programs in their local jurisdictions.
The Interactive Floor Plan can be uploaded into ACAMS and utilized in either a mobile command post or EOC to assist in incidents when deploying personnel or resources in a building without having to use blueprints.
