The Federal Emergency Management Agency has selected ESi crisis information management technology and solutions, to deliver and implement a new Crisis Management System (CMS) for the agency.

The WebEOC-based CMS will support emergency management processes and functions, and provide a common operating picture with comprehensive situational awareness for FEMA and its federal, state, local, and tribal strategic partners. The WebEOC CMS will also feature mission-tasking, event reporting, resource tracking and situation analysis in real-time during daily operations, exercises, national responses and other operations.

Introduced in 1998, WebEOC is an Internet-enabled and locally-configurable incident and event management system. With access to the Internet, authorized emergency managers and first responders, regardless of location, can enter and view incident information in WebEOC status boards.
