Mission Manager representatives have converged on Texas this week to showcase the company’s incident management software capabilities to the Emergency Management and Law Enforcement communities during two prestigious trade shows – the Texas Emergency Management Conference (TEMC), which runs today and tomorrow in San Antonio, and the Texas Tactical Police Officer Association (TTPOA) SWAT show, scheduled Thursday and Friday in San Marcos.
The TEMC conference, which is hosted by the Texas Division of Emergency Management, attracts approximately 3,000 elected officials, first responders, emergency managers and decision makers from across Texas. At Mission Manager’s booth #412, company representatives will demonstrate how the cloud-based incident management software can help agencies control the chaos during disasters, and in the process, help save lives and property.
At the TTPOA Conference – one of the largest SWAT conferences in the United States – Mission Manager’s staff will demonstrate how the same
technology applies to tactical missions ranging from active shooters, high-risk warrant service and campus security to large-scale public events and training drills. During live demos at booth #T-58, the staff will show tactical officers first-hand how Mission Manager can help ensure a Unified Command, assist with crime scene management and reports needed for legal compliance.
About Mission Manager
Based on the core principles of Preparation, Readiness and Execution, Mission Manager is designed to serve as a daily team management tool and online command center. As a daily tool, Mission Manager automates personnel and asset management functions, as well as scheduling, task management and reporting processes.
Because personnel data is readily available and kept current – with customized login access levels for each member – incident commanders / emergency managers can quickly assemble teams and manage deployments.
During callouts, Mission Manager provides immediate/rapid personnel notification though SMS text, voice and email (or all three simultaneously). This expedites the response effort when every second counts. Administrators can quickly build teams through drag-and-drop functions, and establish the Command Post location and other area of interest on mission maps.
When used in the field, Mission Manager provides a common operating picture – on multiple devices regardless of location – that can be shared among agencies responding to the mission. All messaging is secure and cannot be picked up by radio/police scanners.
Every detail of the incident is captured and fully integrated into Mission Manager’s highly secure database – including event logs, team assignments and radio logs – making the reporting process easy. Rather than re-tracing the chain of the events with pen-and-paper, administrators can quickly produce ICS reports and after action reviews with a click of a button.
