Emergency management software

November 9, 2009
Tenet Computer Group Inc. and George Brown College’s school of emergency management have formed a partnership to test the Pandemic Management Toolkit, which will allow government and hospital officials and emergency response teams to rapidly disseminate information related to breaking public crises in an effort to contain and mitigate damage, injury and death. The toolkit offers nine functional modules and the school is testing its fan-out module capability. This module uses a variety of tools such as the Internet, e-mail, Blackberry PIN, SMS, fax and telephone to communicate with all members of an organization and then tracks and organizes their responses to better co-ordinate the personnel required for the emergency.
