GIS News - Public Safety and Emergency Response
Written by Avineon, Inc.   
27 September 2011


ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 27, 2011 -- In recognition of FEMA's National Preparedness Month in September, Avineon, Inc. and Florida State University (FSU) announce the establishment of a center of excellence to promote process reliance in the emergency and disaster management profession for public and private enterprises.

The process center of excellence (PCOE) mission is to research, develop, and promote the utilization of metrics and business processes in the emergency and disaster management profession. The initial focus is on defining pragmatic and reusable models for measuring emergency preparedness. Future efforts will center around development of macro and micro process templates covering pre-event, mid-event, and post-event activities. The models and templates will be tailored and ready for use by federal or state government agencies, local governments, hospitals, universities, and international agencies.

Avineon is a successful provider of information technology, geospatial, engineering support, and program management services. Avineon applied its expertise in these fields to develop Avineonics®, a state of the art information system that delivers enterprise resilience through the application of using business process management technology to emergency preparedness and disaster management. Avineonics also includes benchmarking functionality to support ROI analysis and prioritization of investments, exercise functionality to support training and testing, and real-time incident management tools that support FEMA's Incident Command System (ICS) guidelines.

FSU's Center for Disaster Risk Policy (CDRP) provides technical assistance and emergency management related program and information system development to government organizations. CDRP's continuing mission is to identify, develop, and promote best practices in emergency and public management.

"We are very excited by the opportunity to work with FSU," stated Gary Wilkison, Avineon's Senior Vice President of Commercial Systems. "The CDRP faculty offers unparalleled subject matter expertise in emergency preparedness and disaster management. We also hope our collaboration with FSU's student body will produce innovative solutions."

"CDRP looks forward to developing new disaster management models using the unique Avineon process design suite," said David Merrick, the Center for Disaster Risk Policy Deputy Director. "We feel these processes will provide excellent research opportunities for our faculty, staff and students. By focusing on how and why work is accomplished in an emergency operations center, we can help disaster managers be more efficient and responsive."
