Incident Management Preparedness and Coordination Toolkit Available
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. To learn more and request a copy, go to http://geo.ornl.gov/impact/.
