All Disaster Management professionals must make decisions. Their decision involves a comparison between several alternatives and an evaluation of the outcome. Each operational decision influences future actions, which in turn, require further decisions. Errors in decision-making, therefore, tend to be cumulative.

The quality of the decision is often a direct reflection of the quality of data.

Developed in Australia by global award winners, Summit EM standardises mission-critical data collection, reporting and record keeping. Providing access to real-time quality-assured data and ensuring a timely response to the effects of the emergency responders.

The central data set for all Emergency Response and Recovery information acts as a single point of truth allowing for centralised reporting and integration into Corporate Property Systems and other third-party applications.

Furthermore, our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) web-based application can be scaled up in seconds. Allowing the Incident Management Team (IMT) to disperse fully operational teams immediately. As well as schedule, coordinate, monitor and evaluate staff and volunteer activities instantaneously.

Additionally, the ability to scale up or down provides a vital resource for the Municipal Emergency Resource Officer (MERO) or County Emergency Manager. Summit EM can be used all year to mitigate risks, manage hazards and compliance. Easily accessible audit trails provide detailed information about activities undertaken, including who it was completed by and at what time. Data is centrally stored in a cloud-based enterprise-grade SQL Server database to eliminate the need for expenditure on in-house IT infrastructure, maintenance or support.

Disasters strike in every corner of the world, during every season, and on different scales throughout the year. These events are unexpected by their very nature, leaving little time, if any, to prepare.

The Crest application optimises the use of GPS and GIS maps to help identify properties. The inbuilt digital cameras were used to collect images of damaged and destroyed building which were tied location property ID.

With teams still in the field (post Black Saturday fires), we were able to pull out reports on each property, containing every inspection and all work conducted at each location.

Information such as alternate addresses and contact numbers for residents and all observations acquired through attendance by inspectors and rangers alike gave us the visibility we needed to manage the situation for everyone in the post fire period with confidence.
