Community Emergency Response Planning
When emergencies happen the last thing you want to have happen is have a response team that is scrambling, confused, miscommunicating, and unsure of what to do next. Unfortunately, all too often, that is the case. It is important to have an emergency response plan in place to protect property and save lives. There is no one-size-fits-all approach because every community is incredibly different and thus, responding in emergencies will look different for every community but one thing remains the same – emergency response personnel need accurate, timely access to built environment information to meet citizens’ needs.
ProjectDox is not just the industry’s leading ePlan review software; it is an invaluable tool for emergency response planning that can be completely customized. Paper-based drawings are at risk of damage or destruction in the event of a fire, floor or other unforeseen disaster. Additionally, in the chaos of an emergency it can be difficult to find paper-based drawings and plans and difficult to properly communicate to people in a variety of locations so that a well-executed response can be undertaken. While paper-based drawings are important and helpful, they should not be the only option; they should not be relied on for emergency response. With ProjectDox, community officials can have an easy-to-understand action plan in place and accessible for all approved personnel, simultaneously. This ensures that everyone is on the same page and the same time, literally. And by eliminating downtime and miscommunications, emergency response is far more efficient and effective. ProjectDox makes possible an action plan that can be shared between multiple response teams as well as the command center with better coordination and efficiency, saving valuable property and human life.
The ability to back-up and secure your electronic drawings and data in multiple locations is a key benefit of using the ProjectDoxePlan solution. By implementing ProjectDox for your emergency response planning, you will be protecting valuable information for use in critical future situations. Additionally, in the event of an emergency, response personnel can receive instant, automated status notifications that can be triggered from the field when drawings are accessed. To coordinate a planned, well-marked and described action plan for each possible emergency scenario would be tricky and difficult to keep updated and communicate without the use of technology. At Avolve Software, we have used decades of knowledge and experience, as well as customer feedback, to carefully hone ProjectDox to be the ultimate tool for emergency response planning which can be carefully adapted to meet any jurisdiction’s unique needs.
