Agency Selects ESS Crisis(TM) to Support Emergency Responders Throughout
TEMPE, ARIZ., October 9 /CNW/ - ESS, the leading provider of
Environmental, Health & Safety (EH&S) and Crisis Management software for
corporate Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC), announced today that the New
Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization (NB EMO) has selected ESS Crisis(TM)
to support emergency incident management efforts by NB EMO and local responder
NB EMO coordinates planning and preparedness for emergencies in
compliance with its emergency response plan. The agency will use the on-demand
application of ESS Crisis to support coordination of provincial and local
response operations during emergencies, and enable commanders to streamline
administration disaster financial assistance programs. In addition, local
agencies within the province will use ESS Crisis to support their own
front-line responders during crisis incidents.
ESS Crisis is an integrated information management system that enables
emergency response officials the tools to quickly mobilize response teams,
manage incident scenes and assist with post-event recovery operations. The
software also helps professionals streamline daily operations as well as
conduct effective planning and field exercises before an event occurs.
The on-demand version of ESS Crisis offers many technological and
cost-saving benefits to users because it is not hosted on their local server.
The solution is supported by off-site, redundant IT systems for increased data
security; organizations with limited IT budgets benefit from reduced internal
infrastructure costs; and organizations save time by not having to be
responsible for daily maintenance of system hardware.
"ESS Crisis is the centerpiece of our suite of hosted applications for
crisis and consequence management," says Ernie MacGillivray, New Brunswick's
Director of Emergency Management. "ESS Crisis is our most important incident
management tool, providing secure connectivity and a shared operating system
for our Province and its security and emergency management partners."
"State and provincial emergency management agencies throughout North
America and globally are realizing significant operational benefits from
automating their emergency response procedures," said Robert Johnson, ESS
President and CEO. "ESS Crisis mitigates the impact of crisis events by
ensuring the safety of responders and empowering them to effectively protect
lives and property."
