Buffalo, NY –June 30, 2015 – After a competitive RFP process, the Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) has chosen Buffalo Computer Graphics' (BCG) DisasterLAN (DLAN) as their Emergency Operations Centre Coordination Application.
AEMA leads a wide range of public safety organizations, including various levels of government, communities, industry, and non-governmental organizations, in their efforts to keep Alberta prepared for and able to respond to any emergency. In October they released an RFP for an Emergency Operations Centre Coordination Application to meet their current and future business requirements. They desired a system that would provide Provincial Operations Centre (POC) staff and stakeholders with one secure environment from which all disaster and emergency coordination activities could be performed regardless of their geographic location. They chose DLAN to meet these needs.
In addition to allowing users to securely access the software from any location, DLAN supports multi-agency use with features such as multi-tiered security settings. This allows stakeholders in different agencies from across the province to work together while keeping sensitive information secure.
BCG, in conjunction with their Canadian partner FutureShield, are currently working with AEMA to implement the system and customize it to meet AEMA's needs. AEMA's DLAN system was configured to support current processes and standard operating procedures, allowing it to easily integrate with AEMA's current workflow. Customized status boards were also created for the province to provide quick snapshots of incident information important to specific sections and officers within the POC.
