Mission Manager Experts to Facilitate Virtual Search Mission, June 5, at National Search and Rescue Conference (SARCON 2015)

Attendees at the upcoming National Search and Rescue Conference (SARCON 2015) will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual search mission and learn how to use cloud-based incident management software for an emergency response during a presentation scheduled Friday, June 5, in Estes Park, Colorado.

The presentation will be facilitated by Mission Manager technical experts, Eric Hanigan and Chris Stevens, on Friday June 5, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the YMCA of the Rockies.  It will feature a mock lost person incident that revolves around two boys who went missing near the YMCA camp in the Colorado Rockies.

Attendees can learn how to manage and track all aspects of the search effort on their own laptops, smartphones or tablets. The mission will include 14 virtual search members, a SAR K9, a Command Post, and clues such as footprints and gum wrappers. This field information, along with other points of interest, will appear on live mission maps of the area surrounding the YMCA camp where the boys may have wondered off.

SARCON attendees interested in participating in the virtual mission are encouraged to pre-register and receive login information by emailing info@missionmanager.com. To see an overview of the topics to be covered, download the PDF presentation.

In addition to the presentation, Mission Manager representatives will provide hands-on demos at the company’s booth #118. Here, the staff will show how search-andSARCON Evite - Mission Manager-rescue personnel can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their missions – and help save lives and property – through its robust incident management software.

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.

NASAR newsletter

Chris Boyer, Executive Director of NASAR,  announced last month that the eNews publisher, MultiView, was unable to keep the newsletter alive due to the lack of advertising sponsors; therefore, NASAR would have to produce it in-house as a quarterly publication.

Following the announcement, Mission Manager was happy to step up to the plate to ensure that this self-supporting, nonprofit association can continue to publish its well-read newsletter each month, and focus on its humanitarian mission of saving lives and educating first responders.
