CAE today announced that it has signed a contract with the City of Ottawa Office of Emergency Management to provide an Emergency Management Information System that 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 provide training to the City of Ottawa’s emergency response professionals and deliver software support for the system over the next three years.
“This project for the City of Ottawa is a great example of how CAE can leverage its systems integration expertise to bring together “best of breed” software tools and service delivery capabilities to create an integrated solution that can help our clients to plan, prepare and respond to emergency incidents,” said Gene Colabatistto, Group President, Defence and Security, CAE.
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.
