Disaster Response Coordination

The FEMA-Certified Team at the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (IERCC) have provided Disaster Response Coordination services since 2005, where the team assisted customers during Hurricane Katrina, and the very active hurricane season 2008. GEOS has worked with a number of disaster response companies, and with federal agencies during the catastrophic events. The team has experience with a range of disasters, from man-made incidents, to large scale accidents to natural disasters, such as hurricanes and wild fires. Due to the communications and redundancy provided at the GEOS IERCC site, or simply "the Bunker", we are able to offer a global view of your enterprise and provide much needed coordination among all members of your incident command team.

    Incident Notification and Response Team Activation

    As soon as the team at the International Emergency Response Team has received notice of an incident, either manually or through our Global Event Monitoring system (GEM), we begin notifying critical members of your response and incident command team. These notifications are based on customer specific Emergency Response Plans (ERP) and are available for any type of incident agreed to with you, our customer. We track who was notified, when they were notified, where the incident is occurring and where key assets are. We can also determine and track where key resources: management, response team members, remote and traveling employees are. Our team tracks status of the incident response, including use of either internal forms, or typically National Incident Management System (NIMS) standard ICS forms.

    Disaster Proven Two-Way Communication (Voice or Message-Based)

    When an incident occurs, communication is the most critical aspect to notifying about and responding to the event. GEOS has complete coverage via terrestrial (land-line and cellular) and satellite communications, whether via a Satellite Emergency Notification Device (S.E.N.D.), satellite-data communications, or satellite phone, we cover it all. GEOS has resilient and redundant communications, power and networking in our facility north of Houston, TX, allowing us to stay connected even during the most intense disasters, in fact during Hurricane Ike (Sept. 2008) with extreme sustained winds, with even more powerful gusts, we didn't experience any downtime at "The Bunker".

    Situational Awareness Monitoring

    Information is constantly being collected during an incident, which is needed by those responding to the event. This information comes from location data, communications with those involved and other connected devices, such as sensors, cameras and personnel and asset monitoring technologies. The GEOS IERCC team utilized and correlates this information in the GEOS Incident Management System, allowing your incident command team to keep apprised of the situation in real-time, either through communications with GEOS, or on-line via the GEOS Enterprise Management and Monitoring portal.
