Challenges

When disasters strike, information is critical, but emergency management organizations face challenges using that intelligence in the most effective ways.

  • Unclear knowledge of locations of at-risk populations
  • Confusion surrounding the nature, impact and locations of the emergency
  • Need for immediate rescue response, and disaster response within 24 -48 hours
  • Distributing water and food after immediate danger has passed
  • Complex and multifaceted working environment
  • Many emergencies are not foreseen so planning is limited
  • Uncertainty concerning resources available and where they are located
  • Timely and efficient deployment of resources
  • Multiple response organizations with unique communication methods and response plans

Alqimi Solutions

  • Provide oversight and guidance to various support teams that may be operating autonomously
  • Integrate information from internal and external sources into simple, user-friendly interfaces before disasters strike
  • Create clear, actionable information by posting collected data on a single-screen, dynamic map available via live diverse feeds
  • Coordinate response efforts by clarifying available resources and solidifying the supply chain
  • Incorporate social media analysis and geolocation data to best-deploy resources and personnel in real time

Impact

  • Compelling visual tools – Comprehend situations at a glance with dynamic maps that quickly integrate new data and display layers of information that can be highlighted, removed and combined with other layers
  • Efficient resource coordination –Direct available resources to the most critical locations, linking their divergent communications systems

Applied Results

  • Protected a woman by using cell-phone tracking to alert her and police when a man against whom she had a restraining order came too close
  • Helped thwart a credible threat of violence against the Marine Corps Marathon by assisting investigators and preparing emergency responders
  • Plotted an entire state's at-risk populations before an emergency, so responders would be better forewarned and could pre-plan responses to various threats
