Mission Manager experts will demonstrate how its cloud-based incident command software can help first responders locate lost-and-missing persons during a virtual training exercise at SAREX 2015 – California’s premier Search-and-Rescue (SAR) training event sponsored by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, or Cal OES, and Amador County Sheriff’s Department. Mission Manager will also provide hands-on demos at its booth during the event, which runs Sept. 11-13 at the Plasse’s Resort at Silver Lake, located in the High Sierras.
The desktop exercise is scheduled Saturday, Sept. 12, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Tent 6 at the remote resort. It will simulate a mock lost person incident along the Carson River Emigrant Trail, a historic site that was used by Mormon pioneers beginning in 1848. The class will be facilitated by Eric Hanigan and Chris Stevens, Mission Manager technical experts who are also SAR first responders.
The scenario will tap into Mission Manager’s robust mapping and communications tools to locate the person who went missing along the trail. Participants can follow clues, such as footprints, to track the person to his campfire. To see an overview of the topics to be covered, download the PDF presentation.
Based on Preparation, Readiness and Execution, Mission Manager uniquely provides an operational environment for daily team management and also serves as an online command center. In the field, Mission Manager provides a common operational picture for members in multiple locations using multiple devices. After the incident, administrators can produce instant reports with analytics needed for legal compliance, debriefs and reimbursements.
