Incident Management Preparedness and Coordination Toolkit Available



The Incident Management Preparedness and Coordination (IMPACT) software is a free all-hazards planning tool for first responders. It is meant to augment, not replace, current tools agencies may already be using. IMPACT combines simulation, visualization and mapping into an integrated user interface similar to a smart phone or tablet. First responders can use it for planning, situation awareness and response to natural and manmade disasters. Developed as a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, it uses common data formats to exchange data with other map-based tools.
