All hospitals must have disaster and emergency response systems in place. FEMA’s National Incidence Management System (NIMS) is something that all of us need to be aware of and be able to obtain alerts from and provide information to. I ran across FastCommand, a system which implements the NIMS recommendations, and thought it might be something useful if you don’t have automated systems in place. It has one of my favorite attributes: it’s a web-based solution. They claim to enable hospitals to comply with national emergency response requirements when responding to both minor incidents and major emergency situations. I haven’t had a chance to do a trial yet but it seems useful.
