Command Centre Assessment

 

Information Management is Critical

The Command Center is ultimately a center for information management and decision making. Its primary purpose is to gather and process all of the information required to plan for and respond quickly and effectively to any  potential emergency. Inside the Command Center, incoming messages of all nature must be gathered, categorized, processed logged and displayed in order to optimize decision-making. As messages arrive, the information flows to analysts both information technology specialists and business managers  who make the initial assessment as to whether the information that has arrived is indeed an emergency incident. If and when they determine that a disruption must be treated as an emergency incident, then the incident must be posted to an Operations Log. With the incident established in the Operations Log, your incident response gets underway with triage that determines the priority and type of response. You must select the response and recovery plan most appropriate to that incident. In the event that no plan for that incident or location has been prepared, a plan with similar types of response activities can be activated and modified. This plan should provide the guidance you will need to apply appropriate response personnel and resources.
