DisasterLAN (DLAN) is a web-based, mobile friendly incident management system that provides tools for shared situational awareness, workflow-based information management, and real-time communication to help your team prepare for, respond to, and report on issues. With DLAN in your toolbox, you will be properly prepared to manage daily operations, emergencies, and everything in-between.
DLAN simplifies task, mission, and resource management. It allows critical information to be quickly shared through secure interoperable communication features, which are included at no extra charge. DLAN also includes a full suite of reporting features to allow for easy after-action reporting.
DLAN software is available as a traditional installation or as a cloud hosted service. As an incident grows in size, additional personnel can be brought in quickly, including stakeholders and personnel from supporting agencies.
DLAN balances the convenience and affordability of a COTS system with the capabilities of a customized solution tailored to an organization by offering three standard editions that can be configured in a number of ways to meet the needs of any municipality, organization, or industry.
During the configuration process every DLAN installation is tailored to the specific workflow requirements of each customer and, through our standard tools, administrators can customize many aspects of the system themselves. BCG’s in-house engineering team continually updates and enhances DLAN to meet the evolving needs of our customers.
Since its release in 2002, DLAN has been used internationally at all divisions of government, as well as in private-sector corporations. DLAN has been used in multiple industries, such as emergency management, healthcare, transportation, and education. With DLAN any organization can easily track, manage, and report on multiple incidents and events from one unified mobile ready solution.
