Our Disaster Response Experience

After Action Reports from 10+ years of disaster response experience

OUR HISTORY

Our history in emergency management has shaped our company and the software that we develop. Since 2005, we have supported local emergency managers during disaster response and we have learned tremendous lessons from these deployments. Our unique perspective on mass care and situational awareness enable us to greatly improve local capacity during emergency operations.
